Could Sony be following the coattails of the highly acclaimed Fuji X-100 and join in on the hybrid-rangefinder fun? According to SonyAlphaRumors that seems to be just the case. An inside-source from SAR states:
the image is original but the final model could have some differences!!! As you see the NEX-7 has a rangefinder style a là Fuji X100 (Click here to see that camera)! As you know the NEX-7 will feature the same A77 24 Megapixel sensor and a 3 million dot OLED EVF (it is not a hybrid viewfinder!). It has the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 attached (but that is also a prototype). The camera should cost around $1.200.
