At $1300 it will be double the price of the XS-1 and the zoom only goes to 200mm. But it will have a 1" sensor and likely a much larger EVF. This looks more like a replacement for the F828 from almost 10 years ago. It'll be interesting to see how it sells, but either way you have to give kudos to Sony for taking a risk.

Now it must have at least  20MP resolution to match (thru cropping) the focal length of standard bridge cam. And hopefully a nice 2x TC will go along with it. Would have been better/nice if it has a manual zoom (or it has?). Now Fuji must answer back with X-S2 (with 1 sensor and FL of at least 400mm) even if it doesn't have the constant aperture.
