n working on mirrorless FF. That would give them something unique in the market (for a while anyway), a position they've often said they try to achieve.

It would also help explain the K-01 -- "let's get some experience in the mirrorless market before the main event".

If you are going to build a mirrorless body then you need to go with a new mount.  The advantage to a mirrorless system is the smaller size and the only way to achieve that is to remove the OVF and shorten the register distance.

If the body is going to be the same size and use the same large lenses there is no reason to make it mirrorless.  I would rather have the OVF if I can't get a smaller camera.
