But Leica SL lenses are huge.


I guess there's no hard rule either way?


There is only one rule: it's a matter of compromise in the lens design.

Just look at FA 50 f/1.4 and DFA* 50 f/1.4.

But if the flange distance is smaller you can always use the SLR lens design. The other way around is impossible.

I'm using my Pentax mount lenses with the small Canon RP. I "just" lost the IBIS (which is a good thing because it keeps me away from buying more lenses) and AF although focus peaking makes focusing very easy with the viewfinder.
