I imagine Ricoh would "flip out" if Sigma put a K-mount on a camera body.

I don't see why as the patent on the original manual K mount has long expired by now...The current AF version of the K mount is mechanically identical and only differs in having electrical connections.

Sigma already knows the proto calls for these connections and it has made thousands of PK mount lenses, so there should be no problems at all if they wanted to wack a PK mount on a DPM.
