Nikon LAEA4-clone system.jpg

Found on the Mirrorless Rumors site. Sketch of a 

Nikon design for providing NF-mount compatability 

with a Nikon FF live-view body. Essentially same as  

a Sony LA-EA4 providing A-mount compatability on 

an E-mount body. 


I doubt there's any patent problem here. Both Sony 

and Nikon are simply taking their own existing SLR

AF mechanism and stuffing it into a short tube with 

an SLR front flange plus a live view rear flange on 

its front and rear ends, all just existing mechanisms

in a new can. Doesn't smell like infringement to me,  

not that I'm edumacated about that ....
