  • Flange back is long, a lens with a smaller image circle than the image pickup device body
  • Mount adapter to change the diameter of the flare cut stop, depending on the image circle of mounting the lens

In an interview with DPReview, Masaya Maeda, Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations at Canon, confirmed that Canon is working on serious mirrorless camera system other than EOS-M.

Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution?

Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.

As you know, the new Canon 5Ds & 5Ds R cameras feature super resolution 50MP full frame sensor, so what left is Canon Full frame Mirrorless Camera.
