When will you add full Camera2 API? Another year?
Good hardware with lousy software that cannot utilise the hardware equates to nothing.

Also hoping for RAW support for the Z5. The current state of the camera is pretty bad...the sensor should be capable enough to produce good images, but the "optimizations" happening during post processing right now produce really bad images compared to other phones out there.

I really want raw capture too. Will be a huge plus for a lot of people, and moreover maybe introduce raw capture & editing to people that does not know about it. In addition, not a lot brands support it. It can make the difference !

Quick review after installing MM:
Camera2 API now fixed, except for RAW everything else is working how it supposed in 3rd party apps BUT shutter speed limited to 1/10 as lowest number. Kinda sad it doesnt go lower to at least 1/1...
That sounds good. At least we got some sort of manual control for a start. Hopefully they will end up implementing RAW into the final version. Can't wait to try Marshmellow out when my Z3 compact gets the update.

What kind of shutter speeds are supported in 3rd party apps? E.G. 1/10 to ? and which steps in between? How is the picture quality compared to the stock app? Which 3rd party apps support camera2api and shutter speed selection?
1/10 lowest, 1/6000 i think highest, maybe untill 1/10000, not sure, or otherway around lowest-highest. Pretty much many steps inbetween, thats not an issue at all, its satifactory, but 1/10 as lowest isn't, i would ike to see at least 1/1 or even 4s as lowest like on SGS6E+. Picture quality is worse than in stock, much more noise. Manual camera, and some other, maybe even Camera FV-5 but not sure.
