Must it be mirrorless though?

You know, this whole "mirrorless" thing is all just still speculation. It's as if we all made up our mind what Sony is going to produce.

I have another idea. Two sensors with a pellicle mirror splitting the light in half. The two images are combined back together again. Also allows for 3D shots. Just an idea. Probably can't work like that though.

But how do we know it's going to be mirrorless? They have the upper hand with pdaf with live view and evf right now. Mirrorless on-chip pdaf might not work so well. Does the 70D work all that good? Apparently it's really a 40 megapixel sensor producing 20 megapixel images. That's awfully small. What are the results? Does the focusing work as good at least as the SLTs'?
