They are definitely working on L too. L is the "priority", but I see that being about as viable as the last Sigma mount. They are going to push those lens designs to every mount they can sell to.

Really? Between Leica and Panasonic you don't see L doing any better than SA? Seems like Panasonic is already doing pretty well with their S1 lineup.

When I think of Sony, Nikon and Canon FF MILC customers, I can paint a very clear picture of each. Outside of video pros getting the S1H, who is the L-consortium customer? I don't think any of the cameras are great at AF-C, which rule them all out for sports/wildlife and even just general family stuff. There are several MILCs and DSLRs that are cheaper (and in many cases lighter) for landscapes. The Leica stuff has all of the cost but none of the M-mount cool. And even for video, you're kind of limited to manual focus for the Panasonic bodies due to DFD. So who is the L-mount customer? Seems like its appeal is limited to contrarians.
