Another possibility is to design a lens with fixed rear elements which stay on the camera, and interchangeable front elements. This keeps the cost down, and avoids dust problems.

There have been a few cameras like this in the past.

That may place additional constraints on the design of system lenses as they all have to share the same rear element. And it would exclude the use of non proprietary lenses via adapters.

What I fancy is the imaging capability of (almost) MF in a form as compact and light as possible (almost) without compromising on IQ.
