A report from last month suggested that we could be looking forward to new mirrorless cameras from Canon this year. In fact one of the rumors suggested that Canon could be following in Sony’s footsteps by releasing a full-frame mirrorless camera, and now thanks to Canon Rumors, additional details about Canon’s plans have been revealed.
According to the rumors, there have been talks that one of the full-frame mirrorless cameras that Canon is rumored to launch could sport a newly designed 24MP image sensor. The rumor also claims that this particular camera has apparently been designed to support Canon’s EF lenses, versus the EF-M lenses in Canon’s previous mirrorless cameras.
Prior to this, Canon’s EOS-M range could support EF lenses through the use of an adapter, but this rumor makes it sound like no adapter will be required, but details on it are a bit scarce at the moment. In addition, the rumors are claiming that Canon could launch their new cameras possibly at Photokina.
The event will be taking place from the 20-25th of September in Germany, so perhaps we will learn more then. So far Canon’s mirrorless efforts haven’t exactly been well-received, but the company did promise to step up their efforts for 2016 so hopefully we will be seeing the fruits of their efforts later this year, until then take it with a grain of salt.
