Do you think Canon will take on the A7?

...if Canon is to be successful in the mirrorless FF market.

  1. Either buy a sensor from Sony or make one at least as good.
  2. AF and CAF must be outstanding.
  3. EVF must be outstanding.
  4. Must debut with the following high quality lenses: 24 / 2 IS, 35 / 2 IS, 50 / 1.8 IS, and 85 / 1.8 IS.

Ok I'm obviously thick but I was more thinking of a mirrorless system utilising their existing lenses rather than creating a new range. I know this would make the system less compact than if they brought out a new range of suitable lenses but it would still give the user the option of going compact for the day with a 50mm 1.8 or similar. 
I'm just thinking then a canon enthusiast could have a setup like a 5D for general work and the mirrorless for travelling but still using same lenses and keeping with full frame setup.

I hear what you're saying in regards to the AF I have the EOS M and it's disappointing in that regard so would need to be improved.
