Great camera for the Pi that is a huge improvement over the already impressive v1.2 camera. The only thing that could improve it more would be the addition of an M12 lens holder, so that alternative (wide/narrow/zoom) lenses could be used, maybe the Raspberry Pi Foundation will surprise us with the v3

The V2 was just released, so don’t hold your breath! It’s well priced for it’s features though.

How did you go with the libraries / code side of things?

Hi Graham,
We are building a vision system using opencv,
stuffed around lots at the start getting the hang of all the parameters to
get good picture in all conditions, the v2 is great as a drop on
replacement for the older camera and we hope the improved characteristics
will improve our results, I will update you further in a few weeks.

Maybe one of my personal pi3 projects would make a good project writeup,
not something I have done before but I am willing to give it a shot.

Nice Chris, I hope it all goes well!

Absolutely!

Is the Raspberry Pi Camera Board v2 in or out of stock? My email from you says it’s in, but your website says it’s out.
