Yawn. If Canon would look to the RX1 for some inspiration, then I might consider it.

There already is a patent for adding more pins to the EF mount, but it looks like its for video purposes:
An in-lens leaf shutter in a couple of high end lenses would be very nice. At smaller apertures it should be possible to get flash sync at the fastest shutter speed the shutter allows, and at larger apertures it should still be much faster than at 1/250th of a sec - probably around 1/1000th of a sec.
However, leaf shutters do add an additional type of vignetting at faster shutter speeds - when they're operating at their absolute maximum speed, the centre of the frame is open from the start of the exposure right the way through to the end - but go to half way out on the sensor, and 1/4 of the time into the exposure the sensor finally gets light hitting it, and 3/4 of the way through, it closes again - so at that part of the sensor, there's only 50% of the light. At the extreme corners, the aperture only opens momentarily, so close to 0% of the light hits it. Therefore it would be nice if there was an option to select which of the two shutters is used if such a lens is mounted - leaf shutter for flash work, and focal plane shutter for non-flash work.
I'd sell a liver for such a lens. (You can get by on just one.)
I love how everyone is still concerned about the radioactive elements.
Ever have one of those old (30+ years) glow in the dark watches?
Live or work in a brick building? or stone?
Ever had an xray?
On the big chart of radiation, sleeping with a Takumar under your pillow has got to be down the bottom near the order of one or two blue dots, putting one up to your eyes a few times a day is no worse than staring into the sun...
If you just want to *play* it in the correct pos. then get vlc media player, then tools -> effects -> video -> geometry -> transform (rotate). Also great for watching movies when lying flat on the bed and being too lazy to lift the head :->
