...is neither necessary for a RF-like APS-C E-mount body (both APS-C sensor and EVF can be easily fitted into the small N7 body, and no humps are necessary), nor desirable:

it will only make the whole larger, but nothing will be gained

Which is why I find these ideas about Sony not continuing with RF form as being wild imaginations of a few much less with the frequency we see threads created on the subject.

Do you have any evidence that they will continue the APS-C RF form? It would be nice at this point in the discussion. Do you have any insight into when the long-overdue NEX-7 rangefinder update model, under any name, will finally be introduced? (Even SAR has given up on that one.) Are are you just taking Sony on faith that whatever they do or don't do, it will always be a happy outcome. Are you a BELIEVER?

Look at A7. It combines NEX-7 form with RX1 w/EVF. If you believe Sony were now going for DSLR form, you would see something like A7000 instead. And Sony could have introduced NEX-5R replacement as A5000 but didn't. Take your best guess ad to why it did not.

SAR is a rumor site that posts guess work and bits of info from various sources. One such piece is a news that all Alpha NEX bodies will be called Alpha. This has nothing to do with Sony not keeping the RF form. The RF form will continue as Ax series. Sony has already indicated that NEX-7 replacement will be announced soon. I expect around spring 2014. That it will continue the form is a no brainer... Whether Sony will use A6/A6r duo to replace NEX 6/7 duo is my only curiosity (and hope).
