There was talk earler that the new Canon Mirrorless would accept EF lenses but probably not EF-S. This lens is a new EF-M.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

EF-S is exactly the same mount as EF. the only difference is that the rear element of some lenses protrudes back beyond the mount. A full frame mirror would hit a rear element like this, but a smaller aps-c mirror doesn't so the lenses are designed to take advantage of this. In a mirrorless camera with an adapter there obviously isn't going to be a mirror to hit the rear element. So EF-S will definitely be compatible if EF is. No question.

The only reason the ef-s white lens mount indicator is in a different position is to make it less likely that someone will put an ef-s lens on a full frame camera and break it.
