A feast of glass for sure!

Yet all I want from Pentax is one modest 11-18mm that I can actually buy and use..

I think the new strategic alliance between Sigma, Panasonic, and Leica is a brilliant move! If Panasonic creates a good camera FF for video and stills, Nikon and Canon will experience some competition pain, especially since their new mirrorless offerings all have some shortcomings. With Sigma on board it is possible that many new lenses will be released quickly for the L mount and this system will leapfrog the new closed and proprietary Canikon mirrorless systems, provided they have a competative sensor. Also, Panasonic has no reason to limit it's new offerings, since it has no internal competition with their own FF dslrs to contend with. Let the games begin...

Since the Leica- Panasonic strategic relationship has been around for a long while, and since the Leica SL is up and running with some great lenses and many adapters for all high-end cine and camera mounts, it seems like a sound way forward. However, if the mount falls short of needed electronics mount, it seems that additional contacts can always be added for advancements- as has been done with the ever-evolving Pentax mount.

Thanks for this information. Seems crazy that Panasonic would create yet another mount,- adding a third new FF mount to the Canikon MILC equation. Also, I found every kind of adapter imaginable for the Leica SL mount already. Hopefully, they will have a major, technical reason for this new mount, but it is starting to go crazy for adapter manufacturers. I do like the new Canon version though, since it seems to be very fast and they also have a controller ring and a filter version - although I would prefer a version with both in one. That said, I like Nikon better for stills and Panasonic for video... So far the Canikon cameras themselves seem to have shortcomings, so I hope the Panasonic offering is "all that!" I do anticipate a big price on this new Panasonic FF, given the 8K and the price of the GH5s...

If it is primarily for high-end video - as many of us suspect - it is going to be an expensive 8K and FF machine. If SL mount, Leica sl lenses will not be too far out of the expense equation for native glass, as well as PL and Arri mount lenses -since those adapters already exist, and if the SL is the primary mounting system. Of course, you can mount Pentax, Nikon, and Canon lenses too (Novoflex adapters). In this way, the SL mount is very clever move and Panasonic can take their time coming up with their own native lenses - expensive or not - to satisfy still and video photographers. Another plus is, Pentax owners will have the option to use their glass on this camera, if only with manual focus...

Well, they certainly have the know how and expertise. Getting crowded out there, but competition is good and maybe this will sprout a K1 MkIII or 645z mkII sooner than later...
