Optical requirements of SLR versus mirrorless
8 months ago

Question I've been having for a while: Is it easier to build fast high-quality primes for DSLR's with greater flange distance, or for mirrorless cameras? At the same maximum aperture, will the former or latter be heavier and/o bigger, and how does that depend on focal length of the lens?
