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?


The NEX-6 is smaller than the X-E1 and it also handles better IMO, if a FF NEX is only going to be a bit larger than it may not be any bigger than the X-Pro1.

Sony designed the NEX-6/7 not to look like a Leica rangefinder but like a small DSLR with a real grip, the NEX feels much more solid and better made, the EVF is also better.

If Sony release a FF NEX at a lowish price then I think that it will hurt future Fuji sales but only if they produce the lenses to match.

I do hope that Fuji will release a FF X system within the next two years along side the current APS-C versions but more in the X-M1 style, there's money still to be made in releasing an X-Pro2 and X-E2 but I think that will be short lived.

If Sigma produce a couple of the ART primes for the FF NEX then it'll be game over for Fuji
