DPxM Series with interchangeable lenses

Sigma already has some good mirrorless lenses in the DPxM series.  They could do a proprietary mount for them, then sell an electronic SA mount adapter as well.

This way, they would be the first manufacturer to support leaf-shutter lenses as well as ordinary lenses.

On second thought, maybe not.  Changing lenses is a dirty dusty job, and so is a focal plane shutter.  The Merrill sensor sees all.  DPxM is a way to avoid hassles such as this because there is no dust possible anywhere near the sensor.

Not if you read the Luminous Landscape report of the DP2m

MR found 2 dust spots on the sensor which he found annoying.

Changing lenses should always be done in a neutral atmosphere like a closed car (unless you are a smoker) and never outside near vehicle traffic, especially.

I think ILMs (interchangeable lens mounts) for the DP series would be great.  No zooms unless f1.8, otherwise  the existing  primes would do nicely.
