Re: mFT/camera industry: time to better adapt to smart phones?

I found Sony's QX concept intriguing but ultimately more of a kludge in use than any of the alternatives, including a smaller point and shoot, phone, or even my M43... However, an improved QX line with more compact models that offer higher quality prime lenses would be tempting.

The small sensor model is larger in my pocket than a small sensor compact, and the one with the 1" sensor is larger still (RX100 isn't that much more expensive and easier to pocket). Give me a bright 35mm or 50mm pancake that I can actually pocket on top of that 1" sensor tho and now we're talking.

Sony would probably price such a thing out of this world or fumble it some other way tho... I don't even know if they're committed to future QX models, have they sold even remotely well?
