    Hopefully Nikon redesign the Samsung mirrorless mount to be able to mount their DX/FX lens.

    Don't be like Sony to have 2 kind of len mount system.

    You can't run away from the basics physics of DSLR design lens and mirrorless design lens.

    A-mount (DSLR) have a longer flange distance (distance from lens to sensor), while FE/E-mount (mirrorless) have a shorter flange distance design lens. The good news is that adapters are usually easy to produce.

    If nikon makes a full frame mirrorless with mirrorless lens, you will always have to have a different mount since flange distance changes.

    There's no 'mount design' here, just flange distance.

    Still an adapter need - that is physics I know. But Nikon can alway built in this onto their mirrorless cam so that they don't need to come out a whole new series of new mount lens.

    Then your mirrorless cam will be bulky still. (i.e. same thickness as a DSLR)

    I much prefer Sony's method.. coz it provides a 'transition' for people to use their DSLR lens still, till the mirrorless catches up.

    I still mount my nikon lens on my Nikon 1 (V2/J5) via the FT1 adapter So maybe they should just expand their Nikon 1 to APSC/FF !

    Nikon is a Japanese company, samsung is a korean company

    This alone is a huge stumbling block, the most i guess is that Nikon may use samsung sensors

    Samsung is a huge company, the camera division is only a small part of it

    You have to try the Nx1 and Nx500 to know how good their sensor is and the lenses are .

    I was entertaining this possibility when I first saw the news on Nikon rumours. Either way I hope we see a change of management
