I received another cryptic message about the Otoji project:
The initial problem of the difference in flange register between both standards is addressed by the automatic repositioning of the focal plane of the sensor unit. The adjustment is made automatically when the adapter is mounted. The mirrorless design allows for adequate space to accomplish this while electronic masking ensures accuracy while still keeping the unit size very compact.
The keywords here are:
- automatic repositioning of the focal plane of the sensor unit when the adapter is mounted
- mirrorless design
This is getting more interesting by the day. I am expecting more info next week.
