Sony needs a 1" sensor cam, something like the Nikon V1 but for Sony.

Why even bring this up?

While the NEX series of cams are groundbreaking, marvels of engineering, and whatever else you want to call them, there is nothing about them that would make me leave my A57 at home - the body may be smaller but the lenses are still large because of the APS-C sensor.

They need a small body cam, with the RX100 sensor, something with super-fast focus (like the Nikon V1), and the advantage of interchangeable lenses.

Another advantage, and why I want one, is when you want reach, think about hooking up this theoretical 2.7x crop cam to something like the 70-300G.. that's 810mm, on tap, when you want it!

I don't even think this will kill NEX sales, it would compliment! Come on Sony!

Sony makes so many sensors and sells sensors to Nikon, is the RX100 sensor the same as the Nikon 1 series sensor? I am sure some one knows this.

I think Sony should make a m4/3 camera. They bought into Olympus, they already make there sensors, so make a Sony MEX line, with IBIS.

The NEX line could survive, Sony already makes APS-C sensors for there DSLT's, so the NEX line is fine.

Forget 1 inch mirror less interchangeable, with m4/3 being a proven system Sony could do well with a m4/3. And since Sony already makes tiny bodies for there NEX line and since the m4/3 lenses are so small Sony could have a tiny system on their hands.

But I am big on m4/3 so I am just wishing, I wish CanNikon would jump on m4/3 also.
