Have you considered that (just like the M and the Rebels + 80D + 7D2) that there is a market for both small bodies and larger bodies?

Think back to when the M was released.... How many of you were jumping up and down screaming that it was the end of EF-S? This is no different..... Canon comes out with an "R" that has a small form factor and some wideish and more compact lenses to go with it.... and the cameras like the 6D, 5D, and 1D series continue on as before.... and in the future, one may see a native EF mount mirrorless. The market is big enough for more than one model :)
True and it is also true that EF-M is the end of EF-S ;)

Nokoshita screwed up with this - look at the flash hotshoe, they're not to scale at all.
I thought it looked too small.

Is it just me or is the silver protuberance behind the lens just strange? Seems like they might have stripped away some of the front body (to save weight or allow more finger grip space?).

Really?....So the Sexy solution described to admin by a "source" was...an adapter... like everybody else. Seriously? I suppose only admin himself knows this person, but defining a standard adapter approach as... sexy is pretty damn weird...

Granted there is no product yet and the curtain hasn't lifted, but if all pans out as described, ...canon would be then supporting 3 mounts, two of which will need a lot of lenses going forward and are relatively immature, plus the legacy EF which I assume will continue to see some action...Compare that to just 2 mounts for Nikon, one F for legacy, plus Z, and one for Sony, who is all in the E.

That lens division is going to be busy and IMO sony is throwing a party. They dodged a bullet twice this month.

People should be very happy now! The complainers have something to piss and moan about and claim how stupid Canon is - and 90% of them will get the adapter for their EF glass and be perfectly happy.

I still believe a native EF mount mirrorless is still in Canon's future.

The EOS M and EOS M2 have a dark silver tube similar to what is on the EOS R, but it's shorter on the M & M2 bodies.
