    And Nikon and Sigma have announced joint development on a 135-format camera that supports lenses from Canon EF & EF-M, Sony Alpha & NEX, Pentax K, Sigma SA, FourThirds & micro FourThirds and Samsung; no mention of Fuji X lenses. Special adapters for these mounts will transmit and translate all signals from the various lenses, so that all functions remain supported and AF speed will not be compromised. To be introduced end 2013/beginning 2014 (but don't hold your breath...).

    Nah, it's made with Unobtanium, which is nearly weightless, non-corrosive and non-conductive. And the lens elements are transparent aluminum to save weight as well. And it's only 3 inches long. No, really! ;)

    I'm waiting for the f/1.4 version myself.
