Well, I think this is what Mr from Ricoh was referring to. DSLRs are still needed because of the production of universally interchangeable lenses.

Al all SLR lenses are universally interchangeable.

70 years of SLR development cannot be thrown away; there are, literally, hundreds of millions of SLR lenses around, for all sorts of purposes and of thousands of optical characters, that can be adapted onto the modern short flange mirrorless cameras.

Not a single mirrorless-dedicated company nowadays (locked within own boundaries thanks to supershort flange) will ever match, or produce, or imagine, not even in one million years, the sheer amount of lenses produced by the SLR market collectively in the last 70 years.

There will always be something missing even in the "most complete mirrorless lineup".

That is what Mr from Ricoh was telling inadvertently, but the crowd did not pick up immediately, thinking that he must be delusional, like yours truly.

Love your posts Zvonimir........we need more varied thinking as a crowd!

........however, as a business plan it's difficult to see money from these older pre-owned lenses.
