Canon has a new patent for a lens with two mounts (one on each end) - you can basically reverse the lens and use it for macro photography (this is currently possible with the use of macro reverse adapters). Canon's patent indicates that the lens will have electronic connectors on both ends for aperture and auto focus control (something you cannot do with an adapter).
