Nex price estimates I've seen are $4,000 usd. Add in lenses.

Not a lot of folks have made the jump from x100 to rx1 and I doubt many xpro folks will do so.

There is a lot of rumours about an upcoming full frame Nex camera. Possibly 32mp.

I wonder what that would do to X sales? Perhaps not a lot as it will be an expensive camera no doubt - $2,500 to $3,000 most likely. But it most likely would be in another league IQ wise over the X system no matter how good Xtrans is. Size matters and there is no substitute for full frame sized sensors. Especially if it has millions of PDAF pixels for a DSLR competing AF system.

The good side benefit may be to get Fuji to make one too.

What do you think?


I think jumping from x100 to rx1 would be just throwing far more money for roughly the same type of camera. Many did jump from x100 to xpro1 and so going from xpro1 to ff-nex would be again the same unjustified move unless you are rolling in money.
