Maybe they will add an axis to SR and make the sensor come forward to the new lenses

Then you'd have a built in extension tube as well!

That's a cool idea. Take it a step further, a special mirrorless K-mount where you can move the sensor around in the empty mirror box to approximate a tilt shift lens. Sort of flows with the idea of SR and not having to pay for OS over and over. Just mount a FF K-mount to have a tilt shift; wide, normal, macro.

Scary stuff.

If this idea ever get implemented, I am not sure I want one.
