Rumor: (compact?) Sony MF camera on the horizon

Two different anonymous sources got hints about a quite surprising new Sony camera. They have been told Sony will launch their own Sony branded medium format camera within the next 5-6 months. It will use the same 50MP 44x33mm sensor used by the $27,500 Hasselblad H5D-50c (here at BHphoto).

Both sources stressed to say that the camera will not compete against the Hasselblad, Pentax 645DII and Phase one using the same Sony sensor. The camera is “completely different“! And….good news…it’s cheaper than them

We live in interesting times. I may have to change some plans, luckily I'm so poor nothing happens fast. ;)
