C300 and C500 are swappable between PL and EF.I'd be curious to know why they wouldn't just do an RF mount and make official adaptors for PL and FD. "Swappable" seems a bit too fiddly for Canon and would overcomplicate things considering how tech heavy the new RF lenses are.
Overall, a new EF-mount anything is a bit of a head scratcher considering the cross-compatability of EF and RF.
What would be really cool, I think, is a an RF to RF Speedbooster. Although maybe they might be concerned with people forgoing the R5/R6 for the R/RP + speedbooster.
I highly doubt it.I think the C500 Mark II, C300 Mark III and C200 Mark II will be compatible with an RF-mount conversion that was rumored earlier. The old C200 won't be.
It also overlaps with the earlier EOS C50 rumour which suggested a C200 sensor, but maybe that's how the C200 sensor lives on.
C300 and C500 are swappable between PL and EF.
No DP is going to want to have a $25K Zeiss Master Prime depend on a $200 adapter.
Mounts are far more secure.
For everyday lenses than swapping via adapter would be much faster.
Mirrorless cameras can theoretically have interchangeable mounts for any lens.
The only reason the Canon can't retrofit an RF mount to C300 or C500 is that the built-in ND filters are too large.
That is strictly for mounting.
I doubt autofocus would work.
Since Z Cam does not have built-in ND there can be a lens mount for any lens.
Those are the people who were waiting on A7S III and complaining about every other camera.A CR3 rumor for a dedicated video camera that only garners 27 comments - where are the multi-million posters who were bashing the R5 only for video shortcomings? I thought everything was going video for the next generation of gear buyers and that is why we saw the deluge of video commentary. Isn't this a camera worth paying attention to for them? The world is a weird place.
I am loving my R5 so far. I do plan to try out the video at some point, but about a month into owning it and I have not tried it out yet. So not being a video shooter I guess I am not able to judge these trends. Seems strange to me though.
