Will the new FF Nex have sensor shifting AF?

There is a lot of talk about a full frame NEX camera coming out in October, but I haven't heard anything about if it will have the sensor shifting technology so we can use manual focus lenses and still auto focus.

The reason I ask is my favorite glass on the planet are from Leica. I love using my rangefinder but there are times I just want to have autofocus yet retain the character and sharpness of the Leica glass. It would be a dream to have sensor shift autofocus in a 50 summilux asph, or even more obscure lenses like the 40 summicron-c. I'm not even asking for it to be all that fast (although it would be great if it was). OMD speed would suffice or Ricoh GR speeds. My guess is it would actually focus pretty quickly because you have to estimate by moving the manual focus ring first.
