Rice High came across a Chinese language forum post by a member at SonySDF.com who claims to have used the NEX-7 and Zeiss 24mm lens.

According to the post, the NEX-7 is larger than a Leica M9, and the Zeiss lens image quality is superb.

Most intriguing is the comment "Looking at the rear end of the lens, you can guess the future direction of development of the whole system." Others responding in the thread are taking this to suggest that NEX is headed for 35mm "full frame" format, which would fit with recent rumors about Sony going in that direction with their SLT line of cameras.

Larger than the M9 - does that surprise all of you NEX shooters? (It does me, but I'm pretty behind on the details.) The lens sounds exciting. Exciting days ahead!

From the leaked photos, it looks smaller than an M9 to me, but like Olli I do expect it to be larger than the other NEX cameras.

My E-P3 is the perfect size for me (like the Fuji X100), so that's about the size I'd like to see for a flagship NEX camera.
