IMX533 based camera or if you want APS-C size sensor then IMX571 based camera.

IMX533 has about 16mm (diagonal) size sensor and is about £1000 where as IMX571 is about 28mm (diagonal) and is about £2000 (color) or £2500 (mono). That's the main difference.

Of course there are older CMOS cameras but these two are the most popular choice these days.

If you have 1 1/4 filters then IMX533 would be better fit.
For imx571 you would need bigger filters.
