I just saw a story in my google news feed that the pro version of the EOS-R is supposedly coming with some kind of hybrid EF/RF mount system. Maybe that means the EF line isn't dead after all. Or it could just be to appease pro's who already have a bunch of EF L lenses they dont want to replace.

people that are heavily invested in EF "L" lenses, are reluctant to dump their wonderful lenses that cost them an arm and a leg, just to move to ML cameras and lenses and i am sure canon realizes that so they are walking on a fine line not to get those EF owners upset, IMO, and count me as one of them! a few professionals and some enthusiasts may get enticed enough to take a chance and sell out their EF lens inventory and find out that there is not much IQ difference between the 2 any ways, i think it is gonna take a long while until canon convince people that ML is the way to go! it takes time for us old codgers to yield and accept new technologies while the "old" one is still working perfectly but the change can still happen in a slower pace.

I completely agree. Id even expand that to say non "L" lens owners as well. Most people don't collect lenses like the members here do. Replacing a $400 standard zoom is a big deal to a lot of people.

I hope they do make a hybrid lens mount and expand it to all mirrorless bodies. I may switch to an R body and skip the 90D if that happens!

Isn't the hybrid lens mount the current EF to RF Canon adapter?  I am pretty sure the rumors are mixing up a new adapter (built in drop in filter slots, teleconverter?) with "hybrid."

Since the RF lens has to be closer to the sensor than the EF lens, would a on camera permanent hybrid mount telescope in and out of the body like a pocket camera zoom lens?     Seems for a pro camera.
