Something close to the fuji system would be awesome.
C'mon Canon. Still hoping for aps-c.
APS-C is the minimum, but something like the Leica M9 would be amazing!

C'mon Canon. Give us a full frame mirrorless
or go home.

</strong>Invites for the <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/06/announcement-day-july-23-2012-cr2/" target="_blank">July 23, 2012 product announcement date</a> seem to be making their way around to folks.</p>
<p>It’s suspected this is when we will see the announcement of Canon’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. We may finally get the official announcement for the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x lens as well.</p>

I'll be interested, but not buying if the price is out of sight.  I haven't bought into the G1 X due to price.
It really depends on what the camera brings that makes it usable.  The other mirrorless cameras are a weak lot with a couple of exceptions like the nex 7.

... The shutter release on my 40D is becoming increasingly erratic.

That's an easy fix if you are brave enough to open it up, and are comfortable with a soldering iron.  I've fixed 4 or 5 bad shutter buttons.  Unless of course you're talking about the shutter itself dying, in which case it is a considerable amount of work to remove and replace.

This announcement is less than a week before the opening of the London 2012 Olympics.  You can bet there'll be some top-end telephotos in there (200-400 1.4x sounds about right, possibly others).

Remember that this is a Photokina year too so they've got at least one more hot press date coming...

The 7D is ripe for replacement & of course rumors abound about the mirrorless system (or at least another large-sensor compact), but I don't think they'd announce both at the same time.

There is an easier way. You will find it in U tube. Just do a "40D shutter release repair" or even a "20D shutter release repair". Basically, you  pour a spoon of rubbing alcohol into the empty battery compartment  with the camera tilted to avoid alcohol getting into the top LCD and push the release button 10 to 20 times.  then AIR DRY the camera. I use this method on my 20D, It works.

I doubt  that we will get  FF mirorless this time.  FF mirroreless will be "big" and too expensive due to a brand new sensor/microlens and phase detection on sensor.  We know that the sale volume will not be as high as the 1D X.  On the other hand regardless what the sensor size will be, Canon will need a new sensor that has the on sensor phase detector. It seems to me G1X size sensor will be a good compromise.  There is not such a big difference between 1.7 and 1.6 (based on width) or 1.85 and 1.6(based on length) compare to APS-C. The same sensor can be used in the "G series" later. It is a "one stone to kill two birds" approach. I think Canon will take this approach.

The G1X sensor is developed and a plug-in solution.  I do not think the T4i sensor is quite up to fast phase detect AF.  Of course, if Canon goes to their pellicle mirror technology, we might see a aps-c, but this is unlikely.

Agree. Canon had the pellicle mirror 50 years ago and give it up in just 5 years. Then Canon try it agin about 20 years ago and give it up again. There must be something that canon does not like besides the lost of about 1 stop of sensitivity to the film.

I agree, at best it will probably be the same sensor as the G1X, which is essentially an APS-C sensor cut down to an unappealing aspect ratio.

The Fujis are still more appealing: cool design and nice, standard APS-C sized and proportioned sensor. I just don't want to invest in a non-compatible lens mount.

My bets are on an entry level mirror-less camera.
