The rumour is $4000.00 for the body.  Sony kind of painted themselves into a corner with the crazy $2800 price on the RX1.  You'd have to be a big fan of compactness to buy it instead of $3000 for Nikon D800 or $2000 for a Nikon D600 DSLR.

And it will no longer be compact when you start adding the lenses (This is FF after all).  The RX1 lens equivalent for this mirrorless FF system will also be larger as the sensor cannot be as aggressive with the microlenses since it needs to support a variety of focal lengths.

People think the RX1 lens can just be stuck on a FF mirrorless system when in fact it cannot be done without impacting IQ.
