Sony to release lens/sensor combinations for cell phones

The cameras will reportedly click onto smartphones, and will connect wirelessly to allow the phone’s display to work as a viewfinder.

This I can get behind – full frame sensor power for when you need it, without having to worry about a separate body.

What the article doesn’t clarify is if the glass is going to be separated from the sensor. I doubt that it would be, but I’d see  photographers transitioning to this way more quickly if they sold a separate sensor/phone connector piece that allowed photographers to use their existing lenses with it.
