But are they interested in it because it lacks something (i.e. a mirror)? Or are they interested in something else?Hardly doomed but it is a risky strategy by Canon to be slow to the mirrorless full frame market.
It's only anecdotal and not reflective of the market as a whole but a friend of mine works in a camera shop and he's finding alot of Canon and Nikon users trading in to switch to Sony Mirrorless. They are starting to get overstocked in 2nd hand gear. The A7R III has alot of interest in my circles which is serious amateur as opposed to professional.
If Canon just dropped the mirrorbox from the 5D4, added an EVF and started selling it as a "mirrorless" camera, would they buy it?
But isn't it a normal strategy for Canon? No solid word about "something new and better" until it is ready to hit the market. So far, it worked well. What changed?Part of it is looking for something new and better and no solid word from Canon
