Things are not that rosy at Pentax
#7
Quote:Let's face it - no matter what to think of this, there are just too many camera systems on the market today:

 

Leica: 3 mounts

Canon: 2

Nikon: 1 (was 2)

Sony: 2

Fuji: 2

Pentax: 3

MFT: 1 (was 2)

Hasselbald: 2

Sigma: 1

 

The world doesn't need 17 different mounts.
 

Add in the APS-C (because it is actually a different system with the same physical mount) and you end up with even more.

 

Leica: 4 
Canon: 3
Nikon: 2 
Sony:4
Fuji: 2
Pentax: 4
MFT: 1 
Hasselbald: 2
Sigma: 1
Phase One/Mamiya: 1
 
Total: 24
 
Actually Phase ONe/Mamiya one is cool because they share the same mount, which is based on the m645 mount from 70s. See camera companies, it is possible after all.
 
By the way, how many defunct mounts/systems that are digital based do we have?
 
Contax had the N mount that is gone now.
Samsung NX mount is gone
Contax 645 AF mount is gone too, they probably designed that one with digital backs in mind.
4/3 is gone.
Nikon 1
 
What else?
