So glad Pentax isn't making a mirrorless now!

The size of a smart phone is determined by the size of the LCD - the camera adds nothing to the linear dimensions and virtually nothing to the bulk. That is the main competition to the GRRRR, which can never take up as little space, so the way to do better is via features .... which is also difficult because of the prodigious computing power possessed by a smart phone. If Ricoh can't see this the advantage they would get by making the camera slightly larger so it would also get the benefits of an EVF, I have no confidence in their seeing the benefits of an EVF in the context of an MILC.

Dreams are nice, but this isn't going to happen

1. If Ricoh were going to do EVF, they would have done it on the GR, and MILC is hopeless without it.

I agree with your other points, but as I already said, without EVF, the whole idea won't work.

I can't find the reference right now - but my recollection is that Canon actually released three different adapters - one has some kind of dial on it and one allows user to put standard filter behind the lens.

So why are you so concerned about what Canikon are doing?

Each has an adapter that allows you to use their DSLR lenses on their MILC. As I understand, all lenses will retain all functionality on the Canon system because of how they jumped to their current mount, less true on the Nikon system because of how they evolved to their current mount

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this.

Canon changed lens mount when they went to auto focus, so no manual focus lens has ever been usable on any camera manufactured after 1987; this applies to DSLR as well as MILC.

Nikon's path was slightly more tortuous than Pentax's, but as far as I am aware, manual focus lenses have always been usable on all cameras - but I'm not sure about metering. What ever restriction does exist came into being before their MILCs.

True of Canon - they totally abandoned their FD mount roughly thirty years ago, and that led to their current dominance

False of Nikon - their users make the same kind of claims that Pentax users do .... but with a little more history. Apparently a Nikon D850 can use, without any adapter, every Nikon lens manufactured since 1949 or some such year.
