I believe so. They are saying that the camera is larger, not smaller, than the NEX-C3. They also say it's not any smaller than the NEX-7. I don't know how much smaller the V1 lenses are. It appears that some of them are smaller than NEX lenses, and some of them are larger. The difference does not appear to be dramatic enough to attract attention.

If what you really want is a new focusing system like the V1, then that's something different.

The v1 lenses are significantly smaller.

As for size.. clearly the body can be smaller, sony has already done it! The rx100 houses the same size 1" sensor as the v1.

And finally, yes,focus speed and accuracy of v1.

When you've got DOF, you've less to worry about speed and accuracy. That doesn't necessarily translate into interesting images, however.

1" is better suited to compacts like RX100. No point throwing resources there only to shift focus away from APS-C and larger sensors.
