Guys we're arguing semantics here. My point was that Red is not doing anything that far superior with their hardware that Canon couldn't easily match or even best. Where Red does better over Canon is on the software side with a RAW capture workflow. All Canon would need to do to is implement a similar workflow and include some sort of connection that could move that heavy data stream directly from the sensor to a media device that could handle it like my exampled Thunderbolt SSD. The problem I have with Red is that they market their sensors with hyped up names like "Mysterium" to make them sound far bigger and better than what they actually are. It's an APS-H similar sized sensor, plain and simple. Nothing magical about it. Canon has been making them for years.

This article provides some answers to our mount-related questions (and more):

Quote
Can I change the mount from EF/PL to PL/EF?
No. Lens mounts are not user-interchangeable. This is to assure maximum lens mount strength and precision, something Canon engineers determined was difficult to achieve with an interchangeable mount system.

Does the EOS C300 PL have electronic data contacts for Cooke or Arri PL-mount lenses?
No, there are no electronic lens mount contacts on the EOS C300 PL. These lenses can certainly be mounted and used successfully on the EOS C300 PL, but lens metadata will not be communicated to the camera.

Can metadata have EF lens information?
Yes. Using the EOS C300 with EF mount allows for lens metadata to be passed from the lens to the camera's metadata.
