If you manage to see it please poste some shots
Thanks for posting - that's actually very intriguing. Sounds like they're just in the prototype stage, but hope to have one for hands-on at DEMA. One would have to set the lens aperture and focus manually but could use aperture-priority in the camera to set exposure, with EC settings even as adjustments. EP1 'slower' focus than the Panasonic therefore doesn't matter...but in-body IS becomes a significant advantage.
Looks like the housing CAD mockup pictures include a bump for the EP1 hotshoe-mount flash for optical syncing, with twin ports for FO cabling. All in all, pretty impressive concept. Not sure how much I'd like having to manual focus all the time, but if the Nikonos lens optics are that much better than domed lenses, that's a clear tradeoff someone with the appropriate skill level (ahem, so perhaps not me?? ) would be able to make.
Might try and see if I can check it out at DEMA, if I'm able.
