In the A mount lens reviews, there's an option for "used on" 12MP full frame. Is that for people who used one of those adapters with corrective glass in them to adapt A mount lenses to a Canon 5D? I don't think there has been any Minolta, KM, or Sony 12MP full frame body.

The options are the same across A-mount and E-mount. There are also no 36mp or 61mp A-mount cameras or E-mount film cameras.

That's an interesting device .
I wonder what image quality with native lenses are without a ton of automatic lens correction ?
Another thing would be you'll be able to mount just about any film camera lens on this body .
Focussing might be an issue unless it's going to have an electronic range finder on it like 80's point and shoots ?

for a moment you had me enthousiastic but then I started looking for information - the mount is not powered, that means no stopping down or focusing, not even manual focus. Unfortunately - cool idea though! TFS

The way I read it , it referred to aperture control ( it shows f/5.6 on a display) .
So if it controls aperture , it must have contacts for the lens .

Did you click on the three bars on the top left of the page ?
There's more information than just on the page linked to .

Granted , not much information!
