Hello there!

I think I need to clarify a little bit more about my topic.

In the era of fully machanical lenses, Tamron invented the innovative mechanical coupling Adaptall and Adaptall2 lenses+adapters series. Then situation became more complicated as lenses changes to partly mechanical and partly electronic and the Adaptall lenses+adapters series failed to, literally, "adapt all". So the series was eventually abandoned by Tamron.

Then in the age of mirrorless, practically all lenses from all mirrorless camera manufacturers are fully digitalized. So do you think it is feasible for Tamron to introduce a fully electronic lenses+adapters system (Adaptall3?) in which the lenses are electronically coupled to the adapters and then the adapters are electronically coupled to the camera? If this is achievable, then each of these "Adaptall3" lenses can fit any mirrorless camera brands via suitable "Adaptall3" adapter.

What do you think? Please discuss! ^^
