Check out the Xperia Z5 Premium official camera samples
Sony's newest 23 MP Exmor RS sensor makes a cameo in a Sony flagship for the first time exclusively for the Z5 trio, and we can reasonable expect extremely fast performance, as the phone will sport phase detection autofocus with 192 focus points. Sony promises 0.03s focusing times, which is extremely fast indeed, about three times faster than the quickest autofocus systems announced, like on Samsung's Note5 or the Redmi Note 2.

Still, Sony warns that this is the minimum, while the average focusing speeds will range 0.1s-0.4s, but that is still plenty fast, even for the lowest of light scenarios. Since Sony went all-in with the rear camera, which comes with the world's fastest 0.03s autofocus, 5x Clear Image Zoom, up to ISO12800 for photos and ISO3200 for videos, improved Steady Shot features, as well as rich 4K video recording with 8 MP screenshot taking, it is only suitable to preview some real camera samples from this shooter. The company has posted a few online, and you can preview them in the slideshow below.

I'll better wait for real life camera samples. These official samples never match the actual quality...

These low light pictures can be achieved by keeping the phone on a tripod and using a remote or voice command or timer to trigger the camera instead clicking by your own hand.

Official camera samples? No thanks. From what I can see from first "real" samples image quality hasn't improved dramatically

It's still 1/2.3. Not 1/2.4. And they say it has OIS.

No OIS and the size is 1/2.4 inches

Cant wait for blind test for Z5 to take crap over other phones.

Agreed. A blind test involving the Z5, G4 and S6 would be incredible.

It's 1/2.3" PA, and the 192 points autofocus is still unofficial. And this sensor its not IMX230 like the one in M5, this is tailored only for Xperia Z5 series

No OIS again?? Okay .. We'd better wait for real life's performance though I still have doubt this will match galaxy S6 or iPhone 6s in terms of overall image quality. Hopefully this time Sony will prove me wrong.

This could possibly be the real camera samples but obviously they tweaked the settings. It's definitely not as simple as opening camera app and snapping the photo. Maybe they had a professional photographer mess with settings to get the perfect shot for each photo.

Well, duh.

Weather the Z5 trio will sell a lot or not, we know the fact that these devices are the best in the market right now.

This is why when i'm looking for informations i prefer Gsmarena over the Phonearena. For anyone who wants to know more about the Xperia Z5 Series you can get far more detailed & accurate information in here. The best part is you don't have to messing around with so many articles. You also can go to Sony official site.

I've never been a fan of Sony phones cause they are square, boring looking devices. This device, the top end version, is simply stunning, with the reflective mirror like finish on the back and the 4K screen, granted not super amoled. Their triluminous display though is pretty nice!!!! I might be purchasing myself one if VZW gets it!!!!! Believe it or not peeps, 4K screens and beyond is coming to the main stream and Sony is the first to do it. You know their cameras are top notch. I mean, as of right now, my S6 edge has the best camera on the market and who makes the sensor? That's right, SONY!!!!!!

These New Sony phones will be putting more Pressure on Samsung,after just releasing the Note 5 to Early with just a 16 mega-pixel camera,will this force them to Release the Galaxy S7 early,so Sony & Apple could end up gaining more consumers than Samsung
