Rumor: Full Frame Sony NEX Cameras Coming in About 1 Year
The Sony RX1 shows that it is possible to have a high performance full frame camera and lens in a very compact form, and there are now strong rumors that Sony will release an NEX7-styled full frame Sony NEX camera using the current NEX mount (E mount) in late 2013 or early 2014. SonyAlphaRumors gave this rumor their highest reliability rating.
Read on at SAR.

I wouldn't buy one. But that's just me, as I don't think the quality gain justifies the price of buying all new bodies and lenses as well as probably a little bit bigger size and more weight.

If that's true then it 'might' be the digital camera system that I have been waiting for these 10 years,...with teh provisos that I can use 'any' lens as with existing NEX's and that it does have the image quality since RX1 looks to have been trumped by the Sigma DP2 at less than a quarter of the price!!
.....Now, if Sigma can make an interchangable lens version of DP2 things might be even better since I could be free of Mr Sony for ever.....my NEX is the ONLY sony product I will have in the house.

I wonder what other companies that are heavily invested in protecting the DSLR market would be thinking about that rumour right now?

Read today on Mirrorlessrumors and SAR that Samsung will come up with a FF mirrorless by 2013 March. That will be way before Sony and Fuji who are planning to come up with a FF mirrorless by end of 2013.

Excellent !! Now they're gonna rush at it and the APS-C models' prices are gonna drop like stones (licking my chops here)

Heh honestly I would rather they not rush it but do it right. The first iteration will always be a bit problematic as it is, and costly to boot. Probably even more so when they rush things. It does make me very tempted to explore M glass properly though
