Canon Full Frame Mirrorless to use Dedicated Sensor [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | October 3, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that Canon’s first foray into a full frame mirrorless camera will use a dedicated CMOS sensor and won’t be using either the EOS 6D Mark II or EOS 5D Mark IV image sensors. The claim again comes from an internal presentation of Canon’s 2018 roadmap. We’re still being told not to expect an announcement until at least August of 2018 ahead of Photokina in Cologne, Germany.

We’re also told that a higher end APS-C based mirrorless camera above the EOS M5 is not in the cards.

Nikon is expected to announce their first full frame mirrorless camera before Canon in the first half of 2018.

I’ll be treating the above as a wishlist until I can confirm otherwise.
