    Will P&S survive this?

    Will mirrorless survive this, with the exception of some enthusiast products?

    You cannot go more smaller than that: Sony DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens-cameras leaked! | Mirrorless Rumors

    Since it's wireless anyway, I suppose it's only a question of time before somebody comes up with Wireless Viewfinder Glasses to match this. Fortunately, neither my D700 nor my F6 will stop working as a result of this

    It almost make it worth it to buy a sony phone for ;-)

    I hope mount/grip to phone is just a spring grip like a generic PDA mount. If so, I'd get the RX100 version.

    Edit: just read the details from sonyalpharumors, looks like I'll have to buy one :P

    Xperia Z is a very attractive telephone in any case, waterproof and all. Remember when phones were tied to the wall by a piece of wire and had dials?

    The Sony phone need an OVF or EVF! An if it does not have focus peak and can take M lenses, it is a deal breaker.

    Yup, I had one. At that time I had no mobile phone contract, no 3G data limit or ADSL charges either. Best of all I didn't hear it ring unless I was near it.

    This thing makes me wonder if the cameras that will survive the longest will be MF or maybe the RX1/DP2M type.

    An optical waist level finder should be an absolute minimum. I would obviously also require compatibility with the lenses from my GX680

    I wonder, does it take 120 or 135 film

    Deal breaker on all counts.

    OTOH, could make MF digital obsolete.
