    About the 7Artisans 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye

    Is there any reason this wouldn’t work with an EF to R adapter?
    EF-S lenses had the long SLR film-to-flange distance (I think 44mm?) and just need a spacer adapter to fit on RF (I think 20mm?)
    In contrast EF-M lenses from the M line of interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras had a film-to-flange distance of I think 16mm, anyway, shorter than the RF. You can't really make an adapter that lets you mount the lens closer than the RF flange as it'd have to "reach into" the RF camera bodies. That's not a technical impossibility but the entire lens would have to stick into the RF body and while the mount is big, I'm sure it's too small to allow any EF-M lens to be sunk into the body, and therefore such an adapter couldn't be made.
