Re: Flange focal distance.

I hope the flange focal distance is less than e-mount (18mm) that way existing third party manual e-mount lenses could be used with an adapter. If it is longer then E-mount will have an advantage in that regard. But comparing the mount picture to my 550d mount I'm estimating that the ffd is 16mm which is promising.

Canon waited till all hands were shown so it really would make sense for them to have the shortest flange distance.

Good Point. I hope your right.
