I still give the odds at 60/40 that Sony will pull an APS-C rangefinder out of their hat next year. I sure hope so but even the SAR guy isn't so optimistic, anymore.

Enough hate on this forum over this issue; maybe time to let it go.

You're right, friend. Let it go. Our rangefinder-shaped cameras will work for at least a decade. If Sony keeps the NEX line going in any configuration, we will see new APS-C lenses for decades - and if we get lucky, in 3 years, we'll see used NEX-7s going for their current new price due to demand from the aficionados.

My 35mm f1.4 Summilux now goes for 8x what I paid for it slightly used in 1983. My Canon FD 85mm f1.2L goes in 2013 dollars about exactly what I paid for it in 1989. Highly appreciated gear appreciates.
