This is not really a whole new product for Sony but an enhancement of their already excellent NEX and RX1 products.

And Sony has already announced a pretty large number of FE lenses.

Only 15 lenses, starting with 3 in December.

A brand new FF series not really compatible with the APS-C sensor series of NEX. All NEX development has been cancelled and Sony has dropped the NEX name for new models. Leaving all NEX owners including me, high and dry. A7 and NEX share the e-mount, but if you run the crop NEX lens on the A7 you get only 10 mp.

Sony have done that before. In a couple of years, because I will continue to want a small rangefinder style camera, I will be forced to get an GX7. Fortunately I already have several m43 lenses.

I believe the RX cameras were only the test mule for the A7 and A7r. High priced and no advantage.
