EF to RF and RF to EF

I know the converter for my R5 can convert most of the EF lineup, and most of them work extremely well, I have to say I was surprised to see how well it tracked and focussed.

There are some great RF lenses out now, some arguably better than the glass I had for my 1DXiii, and I wonder if they will ever be backwards compatible, will I ever be able to put the RF800 on my 1DX, is this already possible, or are the new lenses so fundamentally different this will never happen?

While the R5 is superb, but I find my eye tracking with the electronic view finder a bit taxing and artificial and I really don’t like using the back screen.  So I’d happily take the pixel count cut and use the 1DX with a couple of the Rf lenses.

Anyway, just a thought.

We need a sticky on every forum. You can not physically attach a mirrorless lens to a mirrored camera. The correct registration point for the lens would be back inside the mirror box.
