The problem is that everyone is guessing about the future of rangefinder styled bodies & Sony need to understand that all this speculation is causing damage to their market prospects.

The NEX series has been exclusively established by selling rangefinder styled cameras so why leave current owners in the dark ?

I think they have answered us now

Who were SAR's 'sources'?   It is clear that Sony Marketing dept were feeding SAR a lot of the info on the A7 in order to run a sort of 'viral marketing campaign' for that camera - and it worked very well!

The only credible sources concerning the release of new APS-C bodies next year is Sony themselves so the obvious source of that info is Sony

More than one new body looking like the A3000 as well (the word was cameras, not camera)

The A3000 probably be marketed for at least 12 months.  The obvious new DSLR-shape cameras would be an A5000 and an A7000 (and/or maybe an A3000 replacement in late 2014).  Not much room for a Rangfinder there with those bases covered...
