I don't understand why Sony has to make it

Sony needs a 1" sensor cam, something like the Nikon V1 but for Sony.

Why even bring this up?

While the NEX series of cams are groundbreaking, marvels of engineering, and whatever else you want to call them, there is nothing about them that would make me leave my A57 at home - the body may be smaller but the lenses are still large because of the APS-C sensor.

It's a serious question, why not buy a Nikon 1 if it fits your backup camera needs? Does all your gear have to be Sony? With lens size being a concern, you probably wouldn't reuse your A-mount lens on a 1" Sony system anyway. So what advantage would there be to having both camera made by Sony?

When my 5D got annoying to lug around, I didn't wait for Canon to go mirrorless, I bought an NEX-5 and then NEX-7.
