The way to look at it Petri is that the camera comes with a PL Mount, plain and simple. You're not paying extra, but rather paying ENORMOUSLY GIGANTICALLY less than any other camera with similar specs (are there any?). Jim and Co. don't owe you an explanation for a $2K mount when they have carried tens of millions in development costs... It was pretty cheeky for the original posters to ask for Canon mounts instead of PL mounts, although it makes sense from a buyers perspective. But it is downright rude to have a bad attitude about it when Jim says they may not be able to accommodate the request. These tools cost money and these tools make money, lots of it for those who know what they are doing. Thankfully, the price of entry is a lot lower because of Red, so let's not be rude and squabble over a few thousand dollars here or there.
