It looks like Sony may be trying to get into the Four Thirds world–or at least that’s what some crazy report is stating on Sony Alpha Rumors. According to the site (which is usually pretty darn accurate) Sony will be launching two cameras with Four Thirds sized sensors and that are meant to directly compete with the Panasonic LX100.

But in addition to that, one camera will also have a 24MP APS-C sized sensor while the 4/3 sensors are 20MP and 16MP. We truly wonder if these will be 4/3 sensors or if they will be a little bit larger and more similar to what Canon did with the G1X series of cameras. These will also most likely be more premium offerings than the RX100 series; which have sold tremendously well and continue to evolve into better cameras. The combination of a small size and powerful image quality seems to be the sweet spot for many consumers.

Knowing Sony, the cameras are bound to have fast zoom lenses–though we’d be more partial to something closer in relation to the RX1 and the fixed prime lens on the camera.
