Interesting, the lens has 0.15m "macro" close focus ability. If it really is a 1.6x crop sensor, the lens itself will be an extremely useful one. I'm really curious about the pricing though. For some reason, I'm expecting a bunch of exuberantly priced plastic fantastic lenses coming from Canon..... I doubt Canon would cater the sensor towards rangefinder lenses either, but we'll see soon enough.

I was thinking, since the physical mount appears to be the same, if this lens was used on a 7d or rebel or this camera with an EF adapter, would that be like using a macro extender? Perhaps canon designed the lens with this in mind and made it a dual purpose lens. Or maybe it just focuses that close on its own.
