It is now confirmed that the Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Camera is coming and it is being used by select Canon pro photographers. Although the exact announcement date is unknown, this new Canon Full Frame Mirrorless camera will be announced earlier than we thought. We expect to see a development announcement at Photokina 2018 and the official announcement before the end of Q1 in 2019.
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.
We already reported that Canon will shift more of its focus from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras and a Canon full frame mirrorless camera prototype with a new body style does exist. But the biggest question is still what will the native lens mount be?
