    Check out the photos in this DC Watch article.

    The whole modular thing is starting to make more sense!

    The dpreview link no longer works, but the link in your other post does.

    Strange, they seem to have removed that page at DPR. At any rate, the DC Watch page is much more interesting!

    You're right Amin, this morning I saw the article at DPR, now they have removed it.
    I did not read the whole article. Unfortunately my japanese isn't that good.
    Maybe someone helps.

    Have a nice day.
    Kind regards, Herman

    Amin, there is no license needed because the patent is very old. So it's free of charge for third party manufacturers.

    The concept of modules or lensors as we say is THE solution for streetphotography:

    The GXR in the pocket, the 28mm lensor tethered by wire hidden behind a button hole, it's amazing...(S. Jobs).....:rofl:
