    I wanted to pass on this great new concept for our cameras which, hopefully, will solve problems using filters on bulbous or otherwise unusable lenses.

    I hope others will contribute, as I have, to bring this concept to light. I am in no way affiliated with the developers but just to pass this new product on which I have invested in.

    That's a very clever idea, especially if they can pull it off without affecting image quality, as putting filters in the rear can be problematic if things aren't designed well. I'm actually surprised that it hadn't been thought of before.

    I just wanted to add that this is possibly one instance where the 4/3 telecentric lenses could be useful, as the more or less parallel light path wouldn't be affected (or as much) by the introduction of a filter at the rear of the lens. I'm not sure that such would be the case with traditional lenses.

    Only for Canikon lenses onto m43 - would prefer m43 to m43 so we could have filters for the Pany 7-14 and new Oly 7-14...

    Agreed. Possibly with the right (financial) motivation...

    I guess I could take an angle grinder to one of my 4/3rds adapters ...

    It doesn't move it any farther than a normal adapter does. These aren't for m43 lenses, but CaNikon.
