It could be a sensational camera and more importantly for Sony there would be no competition. My main concern would be if they were to interrupt plans to produce lenses for the FE range. But if they can do both it would be a very interesting camera much like what the D800e was 2 years ago.


To me it feels like yet Another symptom of Sony's ADD. I doubt that they can focus on Three lens-lines at the same time (A, E, MF), considering that they haven't done a great job focusing on two as it is... They should let the current mounts and cameras mature a bit bbefore going on to the next thing. If people are to invest a lot of Money in, for instance, FE-mount lenses they need to know that Sony will keep supporting the mount with more lenses, more cameras and accessories. Of course you can buy the A7/A7r and use them as a digital back for lenses from other manufacturers, but that doesn't sound like a great business model for Sony... Canikon might feel traditional and slow compared to Sony, but buyers at least know where they stand and that they are buying into a system that will stay on track for a long time to come. I wish Sony could have at least a little more of that.
