I might have mixed up some things, but…didn’t we already knew that Canon would open the RF mount to other manufacturer? Maybe I did and forgot to post about it.

Digicame-Info reports a third-party rumor that Canon might be set to open the RF mount specifications to other manufacturers. I do not know how much in this rumor is wishful thinking and/or plain speculation. Indeed, Canon already opened the RF mount specifications to licensed manufacturers, as they said in this interview:

Although still limited to a few companies, Canon has already opened up the RF mount to third-party lens manufacturers through licensing. If we receive a request for an open mount from a third-party lens manufacturer, we will consider whether to license it according to Canon’s own business plan and strategy. In fact, we are in contact with several third-party lens companies in this regard. We separate whether or not to open the RF door to third parties and whether or not Canon’s own product line is complete.

So, I guess this was another click-bait rumor with the aim to waste your and my time and to get some more clicks. That’s how it is in this shitty industry based on lies and crap ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Spend your time with actual photography and not with bs.
