There is a lot of rumours about an upcoming full frame Nex camera. Possibly 32mp.
Wow.

I wonder what that would do to X sales? Perhaps not a lot as it will be an expensive camera no doubt - $2,500 to $3,000 most likely. But it most likely would be in another league IQ wise over the X system no matter how good Xtrans is. Size matters and there is no substitute for full frame sized sensors. Especially if it has millions of PDAF pixels for a DSLR competing AF system.

The good side benefit may be to get Fuji to make one too.

What do you think?

It might not affect them at all. I'm wondering if this is a bad move by Sony, unless they can produce this for cheaper than the RX1, I think the average person who wants FF will just buy a 6D or D600. Assuming it's in the usual NEX form factor and operating model, I'm just not sure anyone who buys Leica will get one and about the only people I can see buying one is current NEX owners upgrading. That's a small audience.
