Sony/Zeiss and Mamiya rumored to release medium format digital rangefinder cameras

I got an interesting tip from a very good source: Sony/Zeiss and Mamiya will both release new digital medium format rangefinder-styled cameras in the next 12 months. Sony is already producing a medium format sensor used in the latest cameras from PhaseOne and Hasselblad. I do not have any additional information for now.

Sony announces Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS lens and few accessories
