The talk of what mount Canon will use on its first full frame mirrorless camera is likely the biggest question that exists about the new system. We have no heard two different people tell us pretty much identical things on the topic.
We’re told that there will be a new mirrorless mount for a full frame mirrorless camera, though we weren’t told if it’s a modified version of the EF-M mount or not.
That’s not all.
We’ve also been told that there will be a native EF mount full frame mirrorless camera coming as well. In what order these cameras would hit market is unknown.
We have heard previously that Canon plans to announce two full frame mirrorless cameras within 6 months of each other, and this definitely points in that direction.
It’s possible we’ll get a compact EOS M style full frame mirrorless camera with a new mount and a DSLR style camera without the mirror equipped with the EF mount. There are definitely advantages to both styles of camera bodies.
We also wonder how much video is going to influence the new mirrorless line from Canon, we think it could be a big opportunity for the company and new system(s).
We sit here in the first week of August, and hearing a lot from Nikon about their first full frame mirrorless camera, and the usual mentions of Sony.
We haven’t heard anything about an announcement date that we’d consider reliable. The closer we get to September without more information, is likely telling us that an announcement for Photokina isn’t likely for a full frame mirrorless camera body.
More to come…
