Canon is said to be developing as many as three new full-frame mirrorless cameras for a 2018 launch. It’s been a while since Canon has announced a product in this line, and it looks to be worth the wait as there appears to be a completely new sensor being built.
Reports are saying that the company’s first full-frame mirrorless camera will feature a new CMOS sensor, not a cut-and-paste job from the current full-frame DSLR line. This is according to an internal Canon presentation as it discussed 2018’s roadmap.
At the same time, a vague rumour suggests that there will be not one but three full-frame mirrorless cameras in development. One will have the traditional EF mount (the same mount as the current Canon DSLRs), one with a new lens mount and a fixed-lens full-frame camera (ala Sony’s RX1).
The earliest we can get more information on these cameras will be August next year, during Photokina 2018. Nothing is really set in stone right now, but it is interesting seeing that Canon is taking enthusiast and pro-level mirrorless camera market very seriously now.
