Might not need larger lens mount...

wouldn't it be better for MX format to accept FX lens out now?

FX lenses generally wouldn't have a big enough image circle for the
rumored MX sensor, so you'd end up with considerable vignetting.

This is for sure.

The
rumor, however, is that FX lenses can be used with an adapter in FX
crop mode.

Might not need adapter for FX lens thou. To have large image circle doesn't require larger lens mount. Take a look at some 4x5 MF camera.

But of course, the optical formula of lens is different for sure.

All rumors, of course. The only reason to give these
rumors any credence is that some very reputable people have suggested
it's not a load of BS.
