I can't wait to see what's the excuse this time when the "100% sure" rumor turns out to be a bunch of crap.

My guess:

"The sources were mislead by Sony."

or

"There was some confusion because I got an old sketch but I knew 100% sure that this is not the final design, it just was not posted this way!"

or

"The viewfinder hump in the sketch was misinterpreted as being a 100% hump and actually is not a 100% hump."

What's really funny or sad is that an artist's sketch is rated as an SR5 rumor. As I've said in the past, I wonder how many customers have put off buying something they really wanted over the past 1.5 years due to SAR stating that the FF NEX is just around the corner. Now it's not only "not" around the corner but may not happen at all. Many of his rumors are a big disservice to us enthusiasts imho. I know I struggled with my decision to buy the NEX-7 in June based on his rumors. I think his "trusted resources" have been playing games with him for a long time.

It would be easy to get away with a "SR5 sketch" though, since sketches are conceptual representations rather than accurate depiction of the product. All that it suggests to me is that NEX-6/7 form is retained and the EVF is moved towards the middle.
