I'd SO buy this! A Canon mirrorless full frame imagined.

    You know it would be even better if you could use current canon lenses on it as well as whatever its kit is

    Wow. That's a nice looking design! Looks awfully like the OMD though. But with a full frame ... that'd be AWESOME!

    Once upon a time Canon - heck, all the major makers - made nice rangefinders.

    The SLR was born to solve some problems rangefinders had. Today with electronics, one can build a compact that will do macro or somewhat long telephoto work well, where the film rangefinder has issues with this.

    Time for full circle, or almost full circle. I doubt we'll see a resurgence of RF cameras but small compacts with EVFs taking small lenses.... sure!

    It is interesting - I still have a couple of (no longer used but working) film rangefinders and traded in an almost complete Contax G2 kit for my D300 4 years ago.

    I now find myself with a Panny G2 building an RF-like kit again (28mm - 50mm - 90mm EFL primes). I just need someone to produce a 21mm EFL Biogon-like lens now...

    I think some people just associate good-looking retro design with rangefinder, but this is really like a copy of the Canon AE-1....a classic 35mm SLR

    Never been a micro 4/3 fan.
