    I really wonder what advantage this setup offers compared to just bringing an interchangeable lens camera along with your smartphone and using wifi / NFC / bluetooth to transfer images to the phone? The mount part seems pretty large, too...

    I'm curious to know how well the existing fixed-lens modules have been received.

    Interesting concept for sure. Not sure if juggling the lens in one hand and phone in the other hand is much of an advantage in "normal" shooting conditions.
    But it could allow for some interesting out-of-the-ordinary shots in the hands of creative folks...

    Either way, I like that Sony's trying out really different takes on designing cameras.
