Canon Looking at a Medium Format Company?
By| August 7, 2010
Received a cryptic email in regards to Canon having some interest in purchasing a medium format camera company. Apparently they’ve moved to the point of actually opening the company’s books.
There was no word on which company that was, but there really aren’t that many of them. There have always been murmurs about Canon moving into the medium format segment. I’m not even sure if it’s a growth market or not, or what use Canon would have with it.
I have been told in the past that Canon had interest in acquiring Pentax, but it fell through. Pentax has now moved into the medium format marketplace with the 645D, the folks in Japan will be paying close attention to its success.
If it is Pentax, I for one would love an orange rebel with a pink lens.
