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?

APSC sensor cameras are more than enough for the needs of most enthusiast photographers. I expect the majority will discover that they don't need "full frame" any more than 20 years they found they needed medium format.

Fuji may make a larger sensor digital camera. They made quite a few medium format cameras in the past - but none of those sold to a large market.
