My problem with the EF-s format

Is that is once again segregates the lens line. We will now have a whole new class of lenses that don't work with all Canon bodies. What about the pro with a 20D and a 1D. Especially if the standard EF lense fall by the wayside with development.

So now we have a line of lenses that only works with their 2 lowest end SLR's. That doesn't seem to bode well for a line of EFS-L lenses it seems.

What I don't get is why they didn't make the lenses for a 1.6 crop but in a standard EF mount. At least it would work with older cameras.
