Re: Do you think Canon will take on the A7?

I don't think we'll see a mirrorless FF body until Canon can solve how to make phase detection lenses (EOS) autofocus well with contrast detection AF systems.  Apparently that is a problem not easily solved.  Without that solution I doubt they will release such a camera.  I can't see Canon creating a new line of FF lenses specifically for a mirrorless system to compete with the EOS system, the market demand is not there yet.

Personally, I'm not clamoring for such a camera.
