Small size was the reason I bought the NEX 7 also, but, if it we 20% bigger and had a FF sensor

What I am saying is ever shrinking size should be tempered with other design concerns.

Lets say Sony would make a M9 sized auto focus,interchangeable lens, EVF, full frame camera with the features of the NEX 7, how many would they sell???

At what price? What mount?

I welcome smaller and lighter cameras with high potential for a good reason. I can carry them around without carrying a frown. Such as, fitting these in a sling bag...

Sony RX1: General purpose, light and compact go anywhere full frame camera that covers most of my needs

Sony A55: addresses the rest of them, with 16-50, 70mm macro, 135mm STF and 200G HS.

THAT, to me is a better option than replacing A55 + 16-50 lens with A99 + 24-70mm Zeiss, keep NEX-3 and add RX100.
