Re: Why Pentax Need a New Mount Now

I don't care what they do as long as a K-mount adapter can be had for it.  In one gear-headed but distinctly cool idea, what they could do is redo the 645D mount as a shorter registration FF-K-mount on a mirror less medium format camera.  This time allow interchangeable backs as well so upgrading the camera doesn't kill the finances.  Shorter registration means medium format lenses of all types can be adapted to the camera and K-mount FF lenses can be used in FF "crop mode".  Food for thought, the 645D is overdue for an upgrade, in my opinion.

Cheers.
