It is crazy. There are a huge number of mounts out there now if we include the legacy mounts like F mount, K mount and EOS. Most of the new mirrorless ones are in the 17 to 20 mm range with regard to registration distance. Some have a little bigger diameter, but it says that companies just can't cooperate that there are so many needed right now.

I thought Sony's was usable by others without royalty fees of some kind, but I guess not.

I guess you and I have a different concept of upgrade path. Yes, you can shoot 12 megapixel images with this large full frame camera and your micro four thirds lenses by using an adapter. But the implication that you wouldn't need to buy additional lenses is not true at all. Your lenses are usable but this "upgrade" actually gives less resolution than any other micro four thirds camera on the market. A lot of cameras give the option of cropping in camera. This can be done for a lot of different reasons, including using your current lenses, but very few would be satisfied shooting much while using only a small part of the sensor.

By the way, I don't really believe that there will be an adapter that allows for the use of these lenses without additional glass. Micro four thirds has a registration distance of 19.25mm. They would probably need to cut that back by 3mm in order to make an adapter. It could be done, but that would make the shortest registration distance for any full frame on the market.

That isn't an upgrade path at all. An upgrade path is the reverse where someone has purchased a bunch of full frame Oly and Panasonic lenses (that don't exist) and then move on to the full frame Panasonic camera. The idea that anyone will be pleased shooting a full frame camera in 2x crop mode using their lenses with an adapter and getting somewhere between 10 to 12 megapixel images is a bit silly.

I can mount my DA 15 on my K-1, but I never do because I would rather shoot it on my K-01 or K3. It's a crop lens and there isn't any benefit to shooting on a full frame camera over using a crop camera.

Why all this focus on single card slot? Yes, professionals need a back up slot, but what percentage of 2000 plus dollar cameras are actually purchased by working pros? I think you would be surprised at what percentage are purchased by wealthy hobby photographers who can get by just fine with a single card slot. I think there are deficiencies with both the Canon and Nikon releases, but single card slot really isn't a big one (lack of lens line up is probably biggest).
