Re: Which forum for the new camera - The easy answer...

It will Either be a 4/3 camera, or it wont.

If a ZD 4/3 lens mounts on it without an adapter, then it is a 4/3 camera.

If a 4/3 lens requires an adapter, then it is NOT a 4/3 camera... Whatever else it may be, if it requires an adapter, then its not 4/3.

I have nothing against M4/3, I own 5 of them, and use them daily, but they aren't 4/3 just because I can put a 4/3 lens on an adapter and plunk it in.

Edit: Even if the adapter actually gets the lens to "work" as originally intended, it still doesn't turn it into a 4/3 camera.

Lets not build a false controversy.

Have you given any thought that the new camera may be NEITHER 4/3 or M4/3??

It could easily be a camera with a hole in its front that takes an adapter for M4/3 or an adapter for 4/3. It would be neither "fish nor fowl".

My scenario is for the camera to by a true hybrid - the one beautiful system. 
Some on this forum have already contemplated various designs that would accommodate both lens types.  And now you have added another possible variety that's got neither native mount. And yes I did think of that possibility.

So what's your easy answer ?
