Canon to announce a new mirrorless camera?
Various sites are reporting the possibility that Canon may very soon announce / release some new mirrorless camera (s) model (s).
For a number of years there have been rumours circulating that Canon will introduce an upmarket mirrorless model, there have even been wild suggestions that it would be full frame?
Personally I don’t buy the introduction of a Canon full frame mirrorless camera however I do fully expect Canon to tweak and hone its current “M” range of APS-C models which are “OK” but can hardly be considered exciting or class leading.
What the EOS “M” range lack and have always lacked is a truly decent lens family to complement the bodies.
So how about an upmarket APS-C EOS “M” model with a built in EVF?
How about some more “M” lenses?
Or as a long shot could Canon possible introduce a camera sporting a version or something similar to Samsung’s suberb 28mp backlit APS-C sensor that was found in the now discontinued NX1. Lets be frank someone simply must have bought into Samsung’s NX1 sensor technology which was class leading for the APS-C market? If Canon hasn’t considered using NX1 technolgy one of the major camera companies must have done, it would such a waste for NX1 features / spec’s not to appear elsewhere?
Its reasonable to expect Canon to be reluctant to eat into its APS-C DSLR market so whatever EOS “M” model does surface ( and one will) it will have to offer something different?
A few weeks and we will know.
