It'll certainly be something "completely different" from other digital MF: it won't exist. Even though Sony appears to be trying the 'scatter gun' approach to camera systems I cannot believe they will want to develop a system that's in a segment of ever decreasing market share and something of a niche area now. They havent been able to make much inroads into the Nikon/Canon upper end of the DSLR market let alone MF.
I think this rumour's about as credible as the Canon MF one - CR 0.
The only reason the Full Frame vs Crop sensor debate isn't a Medium Format vs Full Frame is because of accessibility.
If Canon were to release a Medium Format solution, complete with new lenses many would drop full frame like a stone. As someone who shoots a H4D50 I can tell you there's no comparison between the two.
It's not even about MP for me either, 18mp is fine. Just massive pixels, large sensor please.
