canon’s new Eos R

I don’t know what to make of the new Canon EOS R. Re­views have con­cen­trated on the ad­vances in tech­nol­ogy and re­duc­tion in weight it em­bod­ies, but what wor­ries me is the long term and cost of own­er­ship of any Canon. Okay, Canon is bundling an EOS R adapter with the new bod­ies to al­low EF and EF-S lenses, lov­ingly ac­quired over the last 30 years, to be com­pat­i­ble. It’s also launched a range of four new RF mount lenses with an­other 18 in the works, but it won’t re­lease its prod­uct road map yet. Has Canon em­ployed new lens de­sign­ers, or re­as­signed some of its ex­ist­ing EF team and said “go play?” I sus­pect the lat­ter, and if that’s true, is this the be­gin­ning of the end for EF/EF-S lenses? Al­though EF/EF-S lenses will fit the EOS R via the adapter, will it be phys­i­cally pos­si­ble for RF lenses to work with old EOS bod­ies for the next 30 years? Dave Taskis, Hornchurch, Es­sex
