It seems like someone, Sony, Sigma, Tamron, or someone else really could jump on the idea and make full operation adapters which would give the effect of the long wished for universal mount. We know how popular the existing simple adapters are that allow old MF lenses to be mounted on NEX using stop down metering, MF, etc. Being able to use all or most existing AF lenses of all brands with full capability and fast AF seems to me to be very attractive.
It is easy to imagine a later NEX model with a bit larger body, larger battery, and better ergonomics that would make comfortable use with SLR lenses. Imagine using any of your various brand and mount lenses and also being able to choose the lens you want based on various characteristics, but without much regard for which mount it has?

One problem, no A mount lens will be stabilised, so you may be limited to focal length for hand holding, at 135mm I had a few pics not as sharp as they could be, but at 18mm razor sharp. The New Sigma MC-11 adapter opens up a whole new world of choices for the E mount, as their Canon/Sigma adapter for E mount thus enables stabilised lenses to be used.
