The latest Canon rumors (Canon full frame mirrorless camera)



The most interesting Canon rumor is about a new full frame mirrorless camera:

  • The goal is to announce a full frame mirrorless camera for Photokina 2018 which takes place in September of that year.
  • EF mount will be native
  • New exclusive image sensor for the camera.
  • New sensor technology required for the EF mount in a mirrorless application
  • There will be no new “dedicated” lenses, but mirrorless will be “considered in all future EF lens design”
  • 4K video is considered a necessary feature in all full frame cameras going forward
  • One full frame mirrorless camera body to start
  • There is testing at Canon of a more hybrid approach between DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. What that looks like we don’t know. (source)

Canon is also rumored to be working on a new EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens.

Canon recently discontinued three EF lenses - this could indicate a possible replacement:
