But there is a FF sensor and a Zeiss 35mm f2. That's, what, a $4000 combo with any other new FF setup? So there is a pretty big "PnS" discount already.
I think you explained that well to better justify the price.
5D3 = $3500
5D2 (Canon refurb store) = $1759
Distagon 35mm T* f/2 ZE = $1117

Loads of people bought the Fuji x100 even though it has a fixed lens. I'm sure loads will want to buy a FF compact with a fixed lens too.
Before I read your post, this is what I was thinking too.

I'm thinking that as well. Some what like the Fuji X100-> X Pro-1 route
Seems like it to me too, but in this case, I think it would have been smarter to release the interchangeable lens version first. I don't think Sony would need to test the waters (if that's what they're doing) because a Nex-like full frame would be a great seller.
So what, start off with the fixed lens for $2799 .... what will the interchangeable version be? $3499? I guess price doesn't matter too much as long as it's packed with features and usability photographers really need. We'll see.

Impressive specs, nice lens, and a small body. The only problem, and one big problem IMO, is the fact that it is has optical, hybrid, or EVF included. They want you to shell out that much money for a compact full frame camera, but yet do not include what most people who are shopping in that price range are going want. They most likely will have the option of purchasing one once it is released, but given the price of the camera I could only imagine how much it will cost.
An OVF would increase both the size and price. You can buy an EVF.
That being said, I definitely fall in the boat of wanting an OVF, or at least a great EVF.
