We thought it would be announced at Photokina. Maybe, Photo Plus? How about CES?
The highly anticipated Canon full frame mirrorless camera set to rival Sony’s A7 series is still in the works according to credible sources—but we don’t have a timetable on the announcement, yet.
According to CanonRumors, the delay stems from the challenge of making the full frame mirrorless accommodate all EF lenses—rather than creating a new mount-type. In the meantime, it is possible we will see a full frame fixed lens camera (not interchangeable).
This would disappoint many underwater photography enthusiasts because our niche of photography often requires ultra-wide angle fisheye lenses. Not sure I’d want to spend $2,000 and then have to use a wet lens to increase the field of view.
Regardless, the full frame interchangeable lens mirrorless camera is working. And based on the current rumors, it isn’t likely to be announced until the end of 2017… at the earliest. So grab some coffee, a good book, and relax.
