Canon is rumored to announce a new high end mirrorless camera in Q4 of 2018. Although the source doesn’t say it is full frame or APS-C format, it is highly likely that this will be a full frame mirrorless camera from Canon. Other detailed specs and exact lanuch date are still unknown.
The only confirmed thing is that Canon is actively working on a new full frame mirrorless camera. 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.
The previous report said Canon’s goal is to announce a full frame mirrorless camera for Photokina 2018 which takes place in September of that year. And 4K video is considered a necessary feature in all full frame cameras going forward.
Canon started to take mirrorless seriously with the Canon EOS M5 ($929), and the sales of Canon EOS M series have grown 70% over the past year, so for Canon, launching a new full-frame mirrorless camera is really an important and a better choice. Hope Canon can announce a mirrorless like Sony a7RII ($2,698) or Sony a9 ($4,498).
