Razor handles sell blades, Camera mounts sell lenses.

Camera optical companies make money on lenses.

To make more money, sell more lenses. to sell more lenses, sell DIFFERENT cameras.

To retain legacy users, make a competent adapter. So what if it is too late to be first?Nikon released the camera style Ricoh should have, but my collection of legacy lenses tells me this hobbyist can't afford to change.

No new body for me, and no lenses, either.
