Re: Interesting read by Thom Hogan
When he tells that Nikon has to use its existing mount for mirrorless, he is forgetting that their existing mount makes it impossible to make smaller cameras at all, as the flange distance will stay the same...

As a happy owner and user of a Nex-7, Nikon FE (film) and Nikon D600, personally I would have no problem with a mirrorless camera with the depth required by the F-Mount system.

I do realise that in certain situations, small camera size may be advantageous, but to tell the truth, I've never really "gotten" the obsession which some people have with camera/lens size. Body size/weight was not even a secondary consideration when I bought my Nex-7.
