Full Frame Mirrorless in the Works [CR2]
By| October 28, 2015
While Canon themselves have confirmed an “enthusiast” mirrorless camera will come from Canon eventually, no one is quite sure what that means.
We’re told that Canon is actively working on a full frame mirrorless camera, but that Canon may first announce a higher end APS-C sensor EOS M camera first. The full frame camera would retain a version of the EF-M mount we’re told, though it would likely require its own set of lenses due to image circle issues with the current crop of EF-M lenses.
No timeline has been given, but we expect Canon to become more aggressive in the mirrorless space in the coming 12-18 months.
I do wonder if all of this is being held back as they try to figure out how EF lenses fit in with mirrorless.
