This is part of my point. If they use a-mount lenses (unlikely) you have a complete system from the get-go, but the lenses are ridiculously mismatched to the body size. If they start over with a brand new mount then you get something like the new fuji system, an exorbitantly-priced novelty act. Undoubtedly a fine camera, but limited to a small handful of prime lenses, unlikely to ever have as useful a range of lenses as what m43 has already. To paraphrase amalric, a high-priced bauble for the idle rich.

What lenses will they use for this camera? If A-mount, don't forget to add a 1-2 inch long mount adapter to every lens. At that point it won't be a small difference in lens size. If you think they'll start over with a new lens mount...?

I would assume a brand new mount, just like Fuji.
