Adapt a sony nex mount or an m43 mount to the Merrill DP cameras.  Everything would be manual but there would be a huge selection of lenses from which to choose.

Alas the shutter is part of the lens and that makes the conversion very difficult and problematic.

Guess we will have to wait for live view on the SD1 so we can convert canon t/s lenses.

I almost did that for the SD-1 (Converting a Canon T/S 17mm, I had the lens in hand) but I backed out when I saw the results I was getting with other wide manual lenses.

I should revisit that though as it seemed like use of manual fixes was improved in SPP.  I'm still not sure that Canon T/S lens would be sharp on the SD-1 though theoretically it should be.
