Rumours about Canon mirrorless...
#21
A longer registration of SLR mount only affects short focal length lenses, less than 50mm or thereabouts. Longer focal length lenses will be shorter since some of the distance will be consumed by the body. And the difference between say micro4/3 and EF is less than 25mm.


I'm not sure legacy mounting or mount adapting is terribly important for the vast majority of people. In most cases, wouldn't it be better to have a native lens for the job?


SLR lenses not working optimally with mirrorless is going to be a problem regardless of the registration distance so I don't see it as an argument either way. Adapters are not an ideal solution either. You retain all mount conversion problems and add a new one in the form of reduced mechanical stability. It is not a premium solution.


A new lens line for a dedicated mirrorless mount, that'll end well. No other company that has tried this has managed to do this quickly. It will cost significant time and money to do, I'd argue Nikon has neither of these to spare. If you're going to make everyone switch to a new mount, there doesn't have as much tie in, and if you're going new system competitor ones will be a viable option also.


In an ideal world, for an optimal experience, you need a new system from ground up. Sony, micro4/3 and Fuji have done this, mainly as they had little to nothing to lose on the DSLR side. I don't see Nikon being in that position. They have everything to lose if they do a mount transition wrong. Pentax is a bad example to draw on. They're in a bad place financially and will be limited in their ability to do anything.


I'm not saying Nikon going DSLR mount mirrorless is a good option, but only that it may be the least worst of their options. Ignoring CX, they're the last major player to show their hand in bigger sensor mirrorless. If they're going to have a go at all, they probably should skip the crowded APS-C market and take Sony head on with full frame. I'd like to see CX revived as a low cost solution it should have been from the start.
