At the moment several large camera manufacturers, such as Nikon, Sony, and Olympus have come out with mirrorless cameras of their own, but what about Canon? With Nikon entering the mirrorless scene, you would expect their rival to follow suit, but so far Canon has not shown any signs of putting out a mirrorless system of their own, at least until a recent Canon patent has surfaced which indicated that camera manufacturer’s plans for a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera of their own.
The patent reveals Canon’s plans for an 18-45mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens that has reportedly been designed explicitly for APS-C mirrorless cameras, but unfortunately apart from a strong suggestion that Canon could be working towards such a camera of their own, we guess it’s impossible to tell if and when Canon would be releasing the device.
However given the image quality that has come from Canon’s smaller sized cameras, like the Canon Powershot S95 and the Powershot G12, we certainly are looking forward to seeing what the company can come up with should they decide to enter the mirrorless camera market.
