I wouldn't even mind if it had no viewfinder, and just live view - all I want to know is when will it be available, and when will a lens adapter be available!

I'm hoping for CF-cards instead of SD, and dual card slots (maybe one CF, one SD) - this camera will have a lot of professional users.

It's OMD design! I've never tried one of those, so I don't know if this is good or bad, but here's the news:

http://www.sonyalpharu​mors.com …olympus-omd-alike-design/ (external link)

Quote: "There is one big surprise concerning the design of the NEX-FF cameras. Sony had three different prototype designs and instead of going on the classic NEX-7 design they decided to go for the Olympus OMD alike design!

It means the camera has a Full Frame E-mount, has many of the NEX-7 controls and NEX-7 grip, but the viewfinder is in the middle!! And no, it doesn’t have the design from the A3000! It’s really something new, has just a tiny bit bigger size than the RX1. Both models (cheap and more expensive camera) do have the same design. And as I told you yesterday, the cheap model has a 24MP sensors and the more expensive model has a 36MP sensor."

I'll take the 36 MP model. :)

Should just say OM-D instead OMD - I though that was OMG design ;-)a

OM-D is fine; I'll go for the 36MP.

Viewfinder in the middle on a mirrorless camera is a ridiculous skeumorphic design.

On an SLR, it has to be in the middle because the lens mount is (roughly) in the middle, and the viewfinder - by necessity - has to be directly above the lens mount. But the tradeoff to this is that you can't see outside of the viewfinder with the other eye, the way you can on a rangefinder camera, which does not require a central viewfinder.

But on a mirrorless camera, there is absolutely no reason to put the viewfinder in the middle, except as a skeumorphic design. The NEX-7 (e.g.) has it right; put the viewfinder on the side, so that the other eye can be used to see what is outside of the viewfinder.

Retro design is one thing; but slavishly copying designs that were themselves concessions to functionality is ludicrous.

Also, hopefully DX Optics or PTLens releases some profiles for Canon/Nikon/Leica/Sigm​a lenses on the A7 and A7r, to correct for distortion, vignetting and CA.

That's one of the pros of using Canon lenses on Canon bodies - you can correct all these aberrations easily in DPP.

Canadian leak! :)

Body with 24MP sensor will be $1700 Canadian MAP.
Body with 36MP sensor will be $2300 Canadian MAP.

Terrific if true! .. It actually sounds too good to be true, but maybe Sony has decided that a good way to gain market share is to compete on price.

The silence in this thread is disturbing. :| Perhaps most Canonites still can't fathom whats coming?

New info from SAR:

"The A73 uses a 36 Megapixel sensor that has no PDAF on sensor. And it also has no Anti Aliasing filter just like the Nikon D800E. The camera is more appropriate for High resolution photography (like Landscape pics)."

Looks like I'll be ordering two or three of the 36MP version, plus some EF-NEX and Nikkor-NEX adapters.

Canon had better lift their game...

I'll take the a7, seems much more balanced, dont need the 36mp, but PDAF + Mirrorless + full frame = *drool*

I'll probably wait till they offer in body IS.

I am extremely interested in the 36mp version. But I'm a bit troubled that they launch a "landscape focussed camera" without any wide angle lenses.

Well there's a 10-18 for the current Nex range, I guess there will be an equivalent 15-27 or such like in the fullness of time. I'm hoping a future full frame model will allow current Nex lenses to still be used in "crop mode", if so I could be very tempted...

The security and secrecy around this camera is airtight, and no one has managed to snap a picture of it.

But that does not stop people from drawing it. :) This is what Sony's full frame mirrorless looks like:
