Re: A merging of Alpha and NEX courtesy of Aptina

Looks like the sharing of patents with Aptina (Nikon 1 sensor) will allow Sony to develop a sensor with the fast sensor-reads required for faster AF.  Then the only difference between Alpha and NEX is that Alpha has a fix A-mount adaptor with the traditional DSLR design format.  There is nothing stopping Sony from introducing a NEX line with a traditional DSLR design (like the GH3) and an optional alpha mount adaptor.  There is no longer the need for a separate Alpha line any more.

That's my fear. No "need" for an alpha line.

Except-- all those alpha lenses rely on in body stabilization. And the Nex is too small for in body stabilization.

With my shaky hands, my big collection of alpha lenses would be nearly worthless on the Nex.
