Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Camera to be Announced as Early as Photokina 2018

The Canon full frame mirrorless camera will come earlier than we thought.

According to the report from CanonRumors, the Canon full frame mirrorless camerais well into its development cycle“, and it is being used by select Canon pro photographers for testing. So we expect to see the Canon full frame mirrorless camera as early as Photokina 2018, probably a “development” announcement at Photokina.

The report claims that “I’m very confident we’re going to see something announced before the end of Q1 in 2019” and Canon has reportedly been very open with this camera’s existence and development with its professionals to ensure that they “get it right” with this first version of the camera.

In addition, in an interview with DPReview at CP+ 2018, Sony Manager Kenji Tanaka said both Canon and Nikon will release their first full frame mirrorless cameras within one year, before CP+ Show 2019.

This is just my personal opinion, but I think that maybe by next year’s CP+ you’ll see full-frame mirrorless cameras from Canon and Nikon. I think [by then] they will be participating in this market.

One of the biggest unanswered questions about Canon full frame mirrorless camera is whether it will feature a native EF lens mount.

So, let’s wait for Canon…to announce one full frame mirrorless monster like Sony a7R III ($3,198) or Sony a9 ($4,498).

Until we get the official word, it’s best to take this with a grain of salt for now.
