Canon is allegedly working on a full frame mirrorless camera and it is expected to be announced at the end of 2017 at the earliest. And the upcoming Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera is rumored to be announced in Q2 of 2017. So, it seems that 2017 will be a busy year for Canon – Canon will announce both the new full frame mirrorless camera and Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera in 2017. See Canon Roadmap 2017 here.
But, there is another possibility…According to the report from CanonWatch, there is a possibility that Canon is ditching the 6D series and Canon will release the full frame mirrorless camera in 2017 instead of EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera. We know Canon is behind Sony and Fuji in the mirrorless competition. And this year Canon started to take mirrorless seriously with the EOS M5, so for Canon, maybe launching a new full-frame mirrorless camera is a better choice. Hope Canon can announce a mirrorless like Sony a7RII ($3,198).
The previous rumor said the upcoming Canon full frame mirrorless camera will be EF mount and some sort of early prototype already existed although it never came out of Canon’s labs. Maybe it is still undergoing lab tests and development.

Currently, the Canon EOS 6D body retails for only $1,499 at Amazon and this is a very good price for a full-frame DSLR with built-in wi-fi and GPS. And the new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera is selling like hot cakes at Amazon.
