We have know this for some time.

Most smaller companies don't have the funds to R&D a product only to scrap it though. The question is how long will it be in R&D. Due to the lack of lenses, I can only imagine that it will be in development for a while yet. There is no way they'll release it without a set of lenses to back it up.

Of course Pentax did scrap their first DSLR which was a FF 6mp camera, so who knows. That decision at the time turned out to be quite a fiasco for them and I'm sure they've learned from that.
