We keep shooting and look forward to the future products with great anticipation and probably wa-a-a-ay too much expectation.

I'm still quite happy though.

I'll say a new mount shouldn't be hard or scary to implement - give it an extremely short registration distance and produce an inexpensive adapter that will enable normal functionality of K lenses. And yes I'm aware of some of the associated design issues, so let's leave that up to the designers.

Its fantastic that you are so well informed.    I would only observe that making a shallower mount is at odds with a larger sensor, so I suspect they will stick with the K mount on a FF model, as they have 50 years of evidence as to how that works.
