I can't see a reason why they can't make an M43 (or even 4/3) mount unit for the GXR

because they want to sell their own modules and lenses... technically it should be easily possible to build a mFT module, but they won't i am sure.

Actually in their press releases or interviews they expressed that they are open to making or allowing other companies to make mounts for other existing lens formats although they have not yet had talks with anyone to do so.

the amaeteur photographer UK site has some info about this.

Question is also whether the other companies will want this to happen. Forgive me if I'm wrong but Micro 4/3 is a closed consortium by invite only if I recall correctly.
