Or Canon think they can sell enough of the new mount to justify parallel lens development going forward. I guess this is saying that they do. It is probably also saying that they see the DSLR and mirrorless options as having a (at least a medium term) future cohabiting. The full specs are going to be interesting as to where this sits between the 6D2 and the 5D4. It seems like it is going to have its own space - video?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.
