Why do you people want to put the M mount on everything?

Because the M-mount lenses kick a$$, and in aggregate deliver the best IQ per cubic inch of lens size (an ugly way of saying that these are the best small lenses in existence). If you make a body that takes M-mount lenses you instantly get access to a large pool of great glass. Redesigning the same lenses in a proprietary mount will take years. M-mount is not only Leica, it is also Cosina-Voigtlander which probably provides the higher price-performance ratio of any good lenses in existence.

Fuji made dome nice lenses for the XPan - and it was their own mount.
