Re: Dslr with R Mount

Whould it make sense to do an dslr with Rf Mount? Like an 5d5

dSLRs are characterized by a flip up mirror articulated at the top/back of the mirror.

It is theoretically possible to articulate the mirror from the bottom/back with an A-arm and pivot the mirror up and over the sensor--staying out of the way of the back of the lens.

I strongly suspect there are engineering issues that were solved by the current mechanism way back in the early 1970s for the SRL of then and the dSLRs of now; which would rear their ugly heads if the point of mirror articulation was changed.

Thus, your only choices are going to be dSLR or mirrorless.
