I would be amazed if they released a companion 50mm camera. A short telephoto would be a better complimentary camera and I doubt that will ever appear.

I would bet on a FF MILC first; even smaller then their "SLRs".

That's what my crystal ball says at any rate.

I have no idea what Sony's next move will be, but I wonder if an interchangeable lens camera would allow for the same sort of lens/sensor matching as we have in the RX1.

I would think that it would require a new kind of interface.

If not, that might mean a slight compromise in IQ.

Past analysis of the RX1 has suggested that this fixed lens/sensor optimization combo was responsible for the RX1's extraordinary IQ.  So that is probably right.

Hence, for IQ fanatics, a second or even additional fixed lens cameras might be preferable to a FF ILC. There are rumors of something new from Sony in August. I'm not exactly holding my breath, but I am curious.

IQ fanatics would love it but wonder if it is economically viable.

What I can tell you is that I have held off on purchasing new Canon lenses.  I want to see what SONY will do next.  The RX1 ruins you for other cameras.
