..new optical designs could absolutely smoke existing ones were they to use the new lens mount.
Sorry, but:...less distortion, greater light transmission, more compact size,and better corner sharpness. The latest Canon lenses do a better job than the older models, but there's always room for improvement.
- less distortion for lenses with only ~1% distortion
- greater light transmission (unlikely to be more than a stop) for lenses which are commonly used stopped down
- more compact size for lenses the size of a standard zoom that are usually used on a tripod, and
- better corner sharpness for lenses which are already quite sharp in the corners
The RF mount is nice and offers some interesting possibilities, but I think you're 'absolutely smoking' something if you believe it's some sort of miracle mount.
