There is a problem moving a FF lens closer to the sensor without losing IQ.who says they would change the mount distance for a FF mirrorless?You're proposing they're selling a 6d-size camera with just the phase af, mirror+metering removed? Sure it's a possibility, but on the long run they'll most likely want to make use of smaller cameras with ff iq.
This is just what I'm trying to say here, even if I obviously failed to do so :-p ... if there's a mirrorless ff adapter, it'll basically mean putting the lens just where it is now with mirrored gear.I doubt that it will happen, that new lens mount that Canon patented a while back was developed for a reason.
They did? I missed that, could you dig out the link and post it please?
Here is one, perhaps what I remembered. It definitely discusses a new lens mount, and is about as close as Canon comes to saying it will happen. No patent though.
Here is another.
