Does anyone know if you can shoot the new Sony F5 at 2K using PL mount Super 16mm lenses like you can with the Scarlet?

Sony cameras do not crop the sensor at lower resolutions like Red cameras do. They always give you the full area of the sensor and oversample to get lower resolutions.

Answer is no. It doesn't coner the censor.

Plus there's the issue of both the F5 and F55 not shooting 2k until a firmware update that's currently scheduled for September.
