  1. now there is a silly camera. it is so far from the cutting edge of modern auto ability or affordability I can’t imagine why you’d even bring it up?

  2. Rangefinders? Pretty sure you’re talking pre-FD (the original FD) there. That was then; this is now.

    Selling lenses is a big part of Canon’s strategy and bottom line, and I would be surprised if they made an opening for people to easily start using alternative lenses, especially when many of those lenses are not especially sharp by modern standards (doubt Canon wants their net platform to be blamed for the softness of old portrait lenses).

    I don’t see the sense of putting old-fashioned M-mount lenses on a non-reflex electronic viewfinder-only camera; there’s no weight or other savings to be had, and a lot of the glass is likely to be wasted unless the sensor on said camera is large.

  3. Please canon, don’t just offer small sensor on the competition, Give us bigger one !
