"Camera body plus adapter" bundles

I noted the Jessops Canon and Nikon "mirrorless new mount camera body plus adapter" bundles in this thread at:


Now I've seen the following similar bundles:


Canon EOS R Digital Camera with EF Adapter

Nikon Z 6 Digital Camera with Mount Adapter

Nikon Z 7 Digital Camera with Mount Adapter


Nikon Z6 Body And FTZ Mount Adapter Kit

Nikon Z7 Body With FTZ Mount Adapter


Are these manufacturer-led?

Are they short term bundles (perhaps for pre-orders only) by the retailer?

Do the buyers also buy new-mount lenses, to combine with their existing SLR-mount lenses?

This variety of possibilities makes perfect sense to me!

Perhaps in a year we'll be able to see what proportion of buyers of these cameras wanted them primarily to use with SLR-mount lenses. And perhaps their reasons for buying the cameras had little to do, (at least in the short term), with the new lenses.

If it is the latter, there may be an encouraging lesson for Pentax.
