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.

They need a small body cam, with the RX100 sensor, something with super-fast focus (like the Nikon V1), and the advantage of interchangeable lenses.

Another advantage, and why I want one, is when you want reach, think about hooking up this theoretical 2.7x crop cam to something like the 70-300G.. that's 810mm, on tap, when you want it!

I don't even think this will kill NEX sales, it would compliment! Come on Sony!

I don't think there is a really market for Sony. Fair enough using smaller sensors the camera can be smaller than now with the NEX, but not much. However using interchangeable lenses would make the camera not pocketable and that negates the advantage of a camera of such size.
