Subscribed!

This (if it's more than a rumour) could be another sign that Canon will release soon a compact mirrorless body which can accept various lenses! Or maybe even something to squish the Sony Alpha 77!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bring it on, Canon!!!!!!!!!!!

Ooh, quite interested in this! Reminds me of the old school Industar 50 pancake.

To pile on, I hope it's indicative of a Mirrorless that accepts EF lenses (and requires a corresponding image circle)

Really this post is an excuse to say I hope the Canon Mirrorless is closer to a Fuji X-Pro1 (using APS-C or bigger) and not a Nikon 1 (using a smaller than u4/3 sensor).

EF lenses have a 43mm register distance whether the camera includes a mirror or not. Since any EOS capable body would thus have this same distance from the sensor to the back of the lens, an EOS mount mirrorless body will very close in size to a Rebel.

IMO a Canon mirrorless only makes sense if designed around a new lens line with a much shorter register distance. Such a body could use EOS lenses too, but it would offer no size advantage when mounting the lens+adapter.

I just don't get it. Having my 17-50 on my 7D is really no more burdonsome than having my 50/1.8 on it. To me its just more money for a slow prime. If I really wanted to go light, I would get a used G12 or other compact camera.

5D I, II or III + 40 2.8 = perfect light weight travel set-up.

Full frame and 2.8 is fine by me :)

i'm not sure i see the interest in this lens...yeah it's compact...but for an extra 20mm in lens length i could get an extra stop in the 35 f2....if it's cheaper than that lens then it makes sense...although with the prices of the new lenses, i'm not holding my breath...

In the old days i could get my 350D with 35mm f/2 in to my jacket pocket. I thought those days were long gone but maybe this is the turning point.
Maybe Canon are getting a small lens or two (or three maybe) out in to the market before launching a mirror less body.
I cant see it being too cheap though, at least not over here in the UK. I've seen mention of around £200 but if the USA price is around $300 then i expect we will play almost the same but in pounds.

Still going to be very interested if the IQ is up to scratch.

Is this for certain now? there is another thread about this but with canon rumors you never really know. I am very excited about this lens.

Canon Rumours have a few more images now so it looks like it is, along with the new 650D.

Well, it certainly won't be FTMF like some folks hope for - not enough space for a ring USM motor, so it's a physical geartrain - so no FTMF.

Not that you'd ever want to MF with that nifty-esque focus ring.

Interesting idea, but the 35 f2 is not much larger, around the same projected price and slightly faster. The only thing that would make this lens better than the old 35 f2 would be if it had more aperture blades for a smoother bokeh.

Ah, makes sense. So assuming a new mount with shorter flange to sensor distance, all an adaptor would do is put the requisate distance between the lens/sensor and pass the signals through?

Does canonpricewatch.com have a good record for leaked products/announcements​? Or should this be considered just another rumor at this point?
