Re: Future transition to mirrorless

So you're saying a completely new mount would be the best solution if we were to see full frame mirrorless cameras?It seems to me Canon invested a lot into EF mount and some of the EF lenses are absolutely spectacular. It would be better for both Canon and consumers, if the switch ever happens, if EF lenses would still be supported. Even if some kind of adapter is necessary, and it seems like Canon is inclined to do just that in case they switch to a new mount, M to EF adapter proves it. But you did rise a valid point why new mount would be better for mirrorless cameras.

I didnt get the reason, though, why ET mount would still be used in telephoto lenses. Couldnt they also be made smaller an lighter for mirrorless cameras? I'm asking cause you obviously understand technical aspect of lenses better then i do
