    Talking Empty mount

    In the future, will there be a company, come out with a DSLR, totally with no mount? Then they produce different mount adapter for their camera and therefore, you can use every kinds of lens from every brand. It might be possible, with technology so advance nowadays and people are preferring new concept/idea gadget. If I am a billionaire, I might produce such camera. Borrow ideas from different brand and get the best out of them.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    according to marketing, that idea won't work out. i doubt, that any of the DSLR brands would sell their mount specifications to that camera maker.

    You can have an exact physical mount but wouldn't the fact by reverse engineering the electrical interfaces along with the exact or identical communications protocol used be a blatant violation against the patents held by the respective manufacturers?
