From what I read, I think it will. I don't think canon would be developing, and improving their current lenses and then turn around and not make it work with this new body.

Coming out with L lenses specifically designed for the new mirrorless camera AND making the EF lenses work is a slick trick... But we are all still waiting and watching...

September 5th (or whenever the specs finally leak out... ***tapping foot***)

The 28-70 f/2.0 looks great. I wonder how much that'll weigh?

Funny that the LCD top screen looks very much like Nikon Z.

If they are both Amoled they are probably both made by Samsung.

Short term pain, long term gain. It would be foolish for Canon to keep the same mount.

QUOTED IMAGE

I think this is a mistake TBH. I researched the 24-105 RF, and it's as wide as the Sony 24-105, and only 6mm shorter.

it should be roughly the size comparison of the attached image, unfortunately difference in size wont be as big, but it's still noticeable.

the size of the 24-105 RF is near exactly the size of the 24-105 mk1 but will have a shorter register distance.
