I am looking for someone who can answer some doubts for me from these page:

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1.w4004-2014437005.19.PeYoct&id=23787716835
Where the seller is offering the chance to modify a DP Merrill camera to adapt other lenses.
I have doubts about how will the camera operate after the conversion. As it seems, it´s possible to have a sony E mount so I can adapt any other lens through an adapter. Including Pentax lenses of course...

In this thread the seller has writen a lot of information at the bottom of page 10 and continues on page 11:
http://www.x3-club.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=26843&extra=&page=10
But I can´t fully understand all the information about the Sigma DP Merrill conversion which is the one I am interested in.

Without going further, perhaps some chinese speaking fellow member can help me out with translation to clear some doubts. I also need help to contact this man but that is for later.

My idea is to have a Sony E mount because it is has the shortest register distance and so allows the most type of lenses to be converted. I´d like to mount the DA limiteds through this PK-NEX adapter that has aperture control: http://amzn.com/B005ORIS4Y

The maker will plan to E mount in the further.

And, other one already made a E mount of DP3M.

But it is that shutter speed is limit on 1/500s.
