Ricoh style interchangeable mount? Makes sense to me:

That certainly would be something attention-gettingly new and different... have a big chunk out of the mid front of the camera be a removable module.  Undo some clamps or screws and out comes the flange, the autofocus motor, the aperture actuator, the mirror, and the viewfinder, while leaving behind the shutter and the sensor (hopefully 36 MP).  Make modules for K-mount and M-mount, with the latter having an optical rangefinder stuck on top.  Publicly invite Sony to build an E-mount module for it, and maybe even ask for EOS and F mount modules, then act surprised and disappointed when they refuse.  And also, make sure to offer an electronic viewfinder connector -- if possible, one compatible with some existing camera line that already has good ones.
