Sergey Borachev: This is the EOS-M killer!!
This is exactly what is needed by all those Canon owners who have been waiting for a Canon mirrorless camera and who are now giving up on Canon releasing anything worthwhile any time soon.
This Kipon adapter will allow all Canon EOS lenses to be mounted and therefore also stabilised on the Olympus E-M5, since a builtin IBIS should work with any lens.
Who is still going to buy the Canon EOS-M at $1000 apparently for the camera plus the Canon adapter now? How can such a basic camera sell? It was released apparently to target Canon owners who have Canon lenses, since no new buyers will buy such a camera, but this adapter is going to make it very hard to sell even to Canon owners.
A. This just rendered the M fiasco useless
B. C'mon Canon, a $$$ adapter for your own products (with sllow phase AF) for your own product. Jeez!
c. Did they get that Pentax K-01 designer to do this one, or his cousin?

Well, I guess they have size going for them.
