I'm very curious to see Canon's mirrorless entry. If they can deliver a better camera than the Olympus OM-D, and quickly release lenses that are the equal of the very best that micro 4/3 has to offer (12mm, 20mm, 25mm, 45mm, 12-35mm, 35-100mm), AND is fully compatible with my collection of EF/EFS lenses, I'll dump my E-P3 and collection of native lenses (12, 20, 45, 14-42, 14-150) in a heartbeat. If Canon fails to deliver, then I'll be dumping much of my Canon gear and increase my investment into micro 4/3.

OK, here's a pie in the sky theory. Canon's just released a full frame 40mm pancake that works amazingly well on FF. So my theory is that Canon will produce 2 mirrorless entries. 1: a FF rangefinder style (Leica/Fuji Xpro1 style) that would take full advantage of all EF lenses, and 2: an entry level G1X sensor mirrorless with a few dedicated mini lenses (works with EF lenses with an adaptor).

This would allow Canon to produce the best image quality mirrorless of any brand (FF version) and also a consumer, smaller version with decent IQ.

Thoughts?

Pardon my ignorance, but why is everyone calling the compact DSLR's evil?
Because they require special lenses?

I think it is Electronic Viewfinder with Interchangeable Lenses

There is also MILC - Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera

and

CSC - Compact System Camera

Seems like I am reading CSC more lately. EVIL seems to have died down mostly.

I'd love to see a FF mirrorless offering in the Leica/Fuji Xpro1 vein.

I was just on a business trip to China and couldn't ultimately justify taking my 7D along due to the size. Something like this outfitted with my f/1.4 35MM, or maybe a smaller native equivalent would have fit the bill nicely.

It would be awesome to use all EF/ EF-S mount lenses but I would perfer with an adapter. Reason is look at the Pentax K-01, it has the same distance to the sensor as a DSLR because it uses the full sized lenses. You need to have a shorter distance from the flange to the sensor to keep them small othewise it is a DSLR with the lack of DSLR AF/ OVF. Make something like Olympus did with M4/3, have short lenses for normal and can use an adapter to get full use of normal 4/3 lenses.

Well, here's something to think about:

1. Rumor has it the sensor will be APS-H (which is 1.3).

2. The new pancake lens (EF mount) they released is 40mm. Many are scratching their heads: "why 40mm?"

What's 1.3 multiplied by 40?

52mm.


Thank you. bw!

As I've said before, if it takes EF lenses natively, what's the point of making it at all? Just get a Rebel as the new camera would be just as thick (See Pentax K-01).

If it requires an adapter to use EF lenses, than the pancake makes no sense because it won't be a pancake anymore. I don't think the Pancake has anything to do with a potential mirrorless camera.

It would be really cool if it took efs lenses as Wifie really likes the NIKON1. If Canon comes out with one and we cam share lenses that would make my day. Everytime she sees the NIKON1 she mentions how cool/neat it is, I think she is trying to give me a hint.

ABoth EF or EFS lens will make the camera as large as a Pentax K-01. (not much smaller than a Rebel) All EF and EF-S lens has the same distance requirement from sensor to lens which is quite a bit more than typical mirrorless camera.

Go to your local best buy and check Sony NEX and you will see the almost no gap btw sensor and lens. To use older Alpha lens, Sony created a couple of different adapters with electronic coupling. One even has AF.
