There has been a lot of talk of a full frame NEX arriving soon (even as soon as next year to replace the NEX 7). However, Zeiss is also about to release their first line of E-mount lenses next Spring. Given the close relationship between Sony and Carl Zeiss, I can't see Sony releasing a FF NEX anytime soon, as it would render these new very high end lenses largely obsolete, given that they are APS-C specific.

What are your thoughts on this?

So just because Sony release a high end FF NEX-9, all the other NEX models will be rendered useless and there will no longer be a market for them? Since the a900 and a99 have been out, I don't see Sony halting production of APS-C bodies and lenses...
