Over at the rumor site it appears perhaps possible there will be a hybrid without need for an adapter. Kind of hard to imagine, but cool if true.

The problem with such solutions is that with cameras, not unlike computers, they more often fail sadly and obscurely than -occasionally- succeed spectacularly.  I can still remember a computer called the Chameleon that, back in the eighties, offered the possibility of emulating any of three or four computer system.

OTOH, if such a solution first and foremost really works -that it is an attractive, functional camera, much as in the case of Nikon and Pentax, the additional feature of being current, but still allowing full use of an additional pool of lenses becomes an attractive selling point.
