If Sony can get it right (make it manufacturer at a "reasonable" price) this could be a game changer bigger than all of this mirrorless stuff (actually, many of will argue that mirrorless wasn't really a game changer - but that is another topic).

This has the potential to make it possible to put really small, simple lens designs on bodies and have IQ on par with the most expensive glass available.

It is only a matter of time before we see a production camera with the tech. Rumors are, Sony RX2. Whether that happens in Sep/Oct (Photokina)... may just help us see the potential which may eventually be offered with ILCs as well (especially likes of Sony a7r).
