24Mpix FF should be same pixel density as 16MPix APS-c

I'll bet you they'll put 36. We're talking Sony here, they like superlatives (also explains why they want to put a FF sensor in a NEX body - typical Sony 'mine is longer' attitude).

36 MP on a FF is the same pixel density as 16 MP on a APS-C. This would allow for crop images to not be lower resolution than the NEX 5 and 3 series cameras. If Sony wanted to go big, they would jump to 54 MP the same pixel density as the NEX 7. A 24 MP FF would crop to 10.7 MP, a usable resolution but not in the current Sony direction, i.e. 20 MP RX100, 18MP HX20V etc.

Unfortunately, I don't trust Sony to come out with a new line of quality lenses for this camera. I think they will go the dual mount route for now.

On this we agree (unfortunately)...

Sony could go dual E-mount like the Alpha mount, at a minimum it will have an adaptor that will work with full frame Alpha lenses.
