Do You Think Canon Made A Huge Mistake?

Did Canon make a huge mistake when they told Viltrox not to market auto-focus lenses for the RF mount?

The reason for Canon’s reaction are patent infringements, i.e. violation of Canon’s intellectual property. So, was this a dumb move, besides being an overzealous move? Me thinks third party RF mount lenses would benefit the EOS R system as a whole. But who am I to judge?

Christopher Frost posted a video-essay where he analyses and discusses Canon’s decision. The video lasts 7 minutes and is definitely worth your time.
