[HELP] Sigma DP Merrill Foveon modification - Chinese speaking member help needed

Crossposted from the International Chinise forum: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/140-cn/258548-help-chinese-speaking-membe...ml#post2787796
But perhaps it will be of interest to members who like Foveon.

I am looking for someone who can answer some doubts for me from these page:
EFM-∞.Leica M.Ur-
Where the seller is offering the chance to modify a DP Merrill camera to adapt other lenses.
I have doubts about how will the camera operate after the conversion. As it seems, its possible to have a sony E mount so I can adapt any other lens through an adapter. Including Pentax lenses of course...

In this thread the seller has writen a lot of information at the bottom of page 10 and continues on page 11:
X3??EFM-???????--SIGMA DPX???? - ?10? - ?????? - ?? X3 ?? ?? ?? ???? ?????? ?????? ???? ???? - Powered by Discuz!
But I cant fully understand all the information about the Sigma DP Merrill conversion which is the one I am interested in.

Without going further, perhaps some chinese speaking fellow member can help me out with translation to clear some doubts. I also need help to contact this man but that is for later.



My idea is to have a Sony E mount because it is has the shortest register distance and so allows the most type of lenses to be converted. Id like to mount the DA limiteds through this PK-NEX adapter that has aperture control: Amazon.com: Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter with Aperture Control, Pentax K Lens to Sony NEX E-Mount Camera: Camera & Photo

what a beaut!

You may just try contacting him and asking your questions in English - you never know, he may speak it.
