I agree

As much as I would like to see a hybrid mount body, I have my doubts. It will have to be adapter based (which I have no issue with, as long as it seamlessly fits and works).

Now, if the two mounts/bayonets were identical except for the flange to begin with, a built-in mechanical approach would have been easier.

Even the rumour effectively says that it's an adapter - the difference in depth between the 2 mounts is so large that I can't imagine how you could make a hybrid mount anything other than a version of the existing LA-EAx adapters.

The IBIS would still need to be sensor based so there's no advantages there either...
