Nikon CSC with F lens mount?

I know how much some forumites hate "cross-posting" (the photographic equivalent of cross-dressing) but I do think that this contribution that I made to another thread is probably more suited to this one:

Following on from my mention of the AP article, that compared the Nikon D7000 with a Sony CSC (that uses the same sensor as the Nikon), they do say that a "mirrorless Nikon" is expected pretty soon.

That could be really interesting if it has a Nikon F lens mount.

Remember when we all had several SLR bodies - one for monochrome, one for trannie, one for colour neg....?

I suspect that a CSC with the same sensor and same lens mount as a dSLR could take us back into that era, using the dSLR for some purposes and the CSC for others. (sticking a CSC body on to a 600mm f/4 Nikkor would be a wee bit strange!)

It is rare to know Nikon's Next move prior to a Nikon announcement.
There have been 2 rumours of new FX body launches with August launch dates. Neither were right.
