If this confirme to be true it'll be a major photographic event, let the fray begin...

Could be nice. It all depends of course on the implementation. If the lenses aren't good enough, or there aren't enough of them, it will weaken the offering in terms of reaching a broad audience.
If it comes true, I look forward to seeing what they deliver.

I think that lenses are besides the point. As long as people can use legacy glass with it, then people will scoop it up. FF has never been about a broad audience. As long as the price isn't too ridiculous, it'll do well.

We'll have to agree to disagree about whether or not FF is for a broad audience. The 5D and following cameras from Nikon and Sony made larger sensor cameras, and a good range of lenses, available to a much broader audience. Sony would surely be targeting a chunk of those people, hoping to attract them with the perceived advantages of FF in a small, lightweight body. Users of legacy glass are a significant subset, with likely a piece of crossover. But if users of legacy glass are the primary market for this, then it is an unusual move for Sony, because it's not a large-scale market, and offers less opportunity to sell lenses, where margins and brand loyalty are built.

Formula for a system camera:
1) Design camera
2) Design lenses for said camera
3) Release both at the same time
4) Repeat steps 1) & 2)
It's very hard to imagine a camera being genuinely successful whilst ignoring steps 2) through 4). I wish that I was that easily pleased. For me it's native lenses or bust. I thought adapting was fun a year or two back when it was with an E-P1 worth a couple of hundred bucks.

I heard that it would be a medium format sensor with 48 MPs. And they are also rumored to release a 80/1.2 too. All in a body just slightly larger than the size of the RX100. Sweet, we'll take better pictures now.

Only 48? It'll never sell
