    And especially if you want stuff for you DX system, get it now. I just bought a spare kit zoom from eBay. The 18-55 AF-P G VR is my go-to lens, and gets a lot of use.

    Canon started the EF mount about 86 or 87. About a year and half or two ago they invented the rf mount. There was speculation if this was going to be the new mount for mirrorless only or what. Then they started releasing heavy weight high end RF glass. They are in transition now. They havent release an EF body since.

    The less popular, low volume EF glass is slowly being discontinued. The RF mount allows the rear most lens to be about 1/2" closer to the sensor which is supposed to be real good engineering wise.

    Sounds like this will become the new industry standard for mirrrless. DW will eventually inherit the red stripe collection.

    I love my DX gear, but the D3300 cameras that I own do not have auto-bracketing, which would be great for many of my outdoors situations, especially in canyon alcoves
