    Nikon should go with the Sony E-mount and expand the lens universe for both brands.

    a 49mm mount covers easily sensors of 44mm x 33mm is it a future option for Nikon to go for also beyond 24mmx36mm sensors??

    i guess with this mount it is also possible to develop 85mm f/1.2 lenses that was not possible on classic nikon F-mount cause of the small diameter.
    i guess they would also come up with an adapter to use the old f-mount lenses also.

    personally I don’t really care about the change that much as long as there is a FIRST PARTY adapter for the lens to reduce issues with AF third party adapter just cant compete in theory
