I'd like you to share your thoughts on what might happen to lenses now available if the transition happens sometime in the future. Canon once designed a completely new mount which made a lot of people angry. Do you think history will repeat itself or that they'll keep EF mount and lens design we have today? Right now i see no reason not to keep EF, even if DSLRs become think of the past, but i dont know much about technology behind it.

Yes, I think that Canon will keep the EF mount. If the on-sensor PD-AF on 70D works fast and accurate enough (we don't know that yet), then Canon could theoretically have replaced the mirror/OVF on 70D with a good EVF. Maybe Next time.
