Verifiably fake claims.

Can count on your (supposed) sabotage. We are talking about a cam we have previews on and some shots...And that is putting pressure on Sony? How is EM1 not pressure, how is the new GH4 especially no pressure. GX7? GM1....all real cams ranging in sizes and specs.

Sony has been very clever I think with the FF A7 series. There is virtually no threat. No cam has that unique sensor for a mirrorless cam.

The 7000 series simply would have entered an already competitive market. The Fuji is not going to change a lot about this.

Sony has fallen way behind Fuji in the APS mirrorless race now. When Canon and Nikon decide to jump in they know they will quickly fall to the 5% they are at in the DSLR sector.

Did you read the news? Canon did come with a mirrorless camera with APS sensor and guess what? They didn't even make it to the 5% Sony is in with their DSLRs....

They didn't try yet. They saw that 47% drop in mirrorless sales it was smart to stick with DSLRs a little wile longer. Meanwhile not only are mirrorless sales plummeting,

False and false.

Based on the last worldwide statistics available (november), mirrorless marketshare has remained about flat in units (19%) year over year with a slightly larger drop (3 % point) in unit shipments, but with a smaller drop in actual value of shipments (again by 3% point), the latter being more of interest to camera makers. Interestingly, the last month shows that mirrorless is regaining ground with an 18% month over month increase of unit shipments vs 15% drop for DSLR's. And a 59% increase in shipments value vs 9% drop for DSLR's.

Yeah, that sells a lot of cameras. "buy our $2000 camera and learn to focus it yourself!". I am sure we will see plenty of those at the Olympics. Maybe this is why mirrorless sales are plummeting and DSLR sales are doing so much better.

Maybe you're making up things again, see above.
