(Note: One of the the big advantages of mirrorless cameras is that they can have much wider-angle double-gaussian lenses while DSLRs are obliged to use retrofocus designs at those focal lengths.)

Would it be possible to use this design in a wider EF-S lens? I'm thinking something like a super cheap fast EF-S 28mm
