Nowadays, when you buy the camera body, you also buy the "film."

That's why there's a market for adapters.

4/3s has proved that a universal mount (BTW, one that can also be adapted to many other brands of current and legacy glass), does not hurt body or lens sales.

4/3, E-mount, FE-mount, NX-mount, X-mount, eosm-mount, m-mount, ft1-mount; the field is crowded with mirrorless options to mount legacy glass to. I don't think having another is going to drive business to Pentax.

Thank you
