But there's one huge advantage of retrofocus lenses - telecentricity.

Even when designing a telecentric lens for mirrorless the designer has the option to put correction element closer to the sensor.

For example the EF-M 11-22 is a telecentric lens with a rear element that would be hit by a DSLR mirror.

In a recent interview Canon attributed the exceptional performance of that lens to the design flexibility given by the short lens register.

Fewer design constraints = more design options.
