DSLR circuit is abuzz with the rumor that Canon will soon be following Sony and will be introducing a full-frame mirrorless camera at the upcoming Photokina in Germany later this year. There has been no official confirmation of this news as yet, but what we have learnt from various reports online is that the new camera will sport a newly designed 24 megapixel image sensor and will support Canon’s EF series of lenses. This, if it is true, will be a little surprising since previous mirrorless cameras from the company supported EF-M lenses.
By the end of this year Canon is slated to launch a few EF lenses, which the company has termed as ‘fast prime lenses’. We will be closely watching if its full-frame mirrorless can create as much buzz as the Sony a7 II series, but it will definitely be a worthwhile challenger. So let’s now wait for Photokina in September and see if these rumors are indeed rumors or if there is any truth in them.
