I must say I'm really interested to see if this is true and if so I'm very interested in seeing what kind of images it produces. If it is the size I think it is, it does have 24MP and built-in OLED viewfinder then I will be pre-ordering one the first day I can. Even allowing for the fact that the NEX system has very few lenses, this camera could be the answer to many a stock / travel photographers prayers, including mine.
The closer these things get to announcement, the more reliable the rumours tend to be. Heres hoping.
