I see no point in that camera unless Sony has the lenses to support it. Currently, the lens selection is weak. IF there are a few high quality zooms and primes introduced, I'd buy it. Without the lens support, what's the point?

It sounds like a powerful small body with a good EVF, support for every lens mount ever made and a superb sensor at 24mp.
If that is not worth the price tag I am not sure what does

1,300 is really not expensive, if you come off the PS frame of mind, and given that the new fixed lens Fuji is not made fast enough, the NEX 7, if made properly will be well received.

It's not the price, it's the lenses. The three E mount lenses can barely support the current NEX models. They'd get ugly on a sensor with that resolution. And I REFUSE to use those damned slow, expensive, and clunky adapters. No chance. So without some decent glass, it's not for me.

That said, while the specs are rumor-only, they look great. And if the camera is, physically, as described earlier (kind of like a Minolta A2) then the form factor would work for me, as well.
