After Nikon has officially announced their full frame mirrorless camera, it seems it’s time for Canon now. Website Canon Rumors collected some interesting statements from trusted sources, suggesting that Canon will be launching a new mirrorless camera in late 2018. Or better yet – it may be more than just one camera.

Other than this, they write that the upcoming mirrorless body will not a sensor from Canon’s full frame DSLRs like EOS 6D Mark II or EOS 5D Mark IV. Instead, it will use have a dedicated sensor, developed specifically for this camera.

Back in December, there were rumors that Canon will give up on the 6D Mk II and launch a mirrorless camera instead. They didn’t give up on the new DLSR, as we could see. But according to these latest reports, it seems they’re still planning to launch the mirrorless camera(s). As Canon Rumors writes, their source tells them there are three active full frame mirrorless cameras in development.

The first project is reportedly a full frame mirrorless camera with a native EF mount. The second should be a smaller full frame mirrorless camera with a new mount. It’s not certain whether it’s supposed to be a modified EF-M mount or something else. As for the third project, it should be a fixed lens full frame camera. According to Nikon Rumors, it’s in very early stages of development, and “won’t be coming in 2018, if at all.”

As mentioned, the full frame mirrorless camera from Canon won’t arrive before the second half 2018. As Nikon Rumors writes, their source told them not to expect an announcement before August 2018 at best. If Canon announces the new full frame mirrorless cameras in 2018, it will most likely be before Photokina in Cologne, Germany.

Considering that other brands already took over the mirrorless market, it may seem that Nikon and Canon arrive at the scene too late. But if they manage to make full frame mirrorless cameras that can compete with Sony a9 for example, they could make the market more interesting. And if nothing else, they could attract the brand-devoted users who want to go mirrorless.

    Let’s hope it’s not shaped like a brick like the camera in the picture..
    Mirrorless might be smaller and lighter…but if the ergonomics are less then the DSLR’s…then these benefits are gone.

    I wonder if the industry will just move towards mirrorless in the next decade and DSLRs will end up a novelty that sticks around the way film cameras do now.

      And probably 5 times too expensive when they do finally get round to it!

      Probably. For me, the 50D was the last great camera Canon made. Went downhill and stalled after that. Loved both my 7D and the 80D that replaced it but still felt like the latest wasnt as good as the rivals.

      Using this at the moment… absolutely love it

      Alan Amos nice! I love my 6D but I think it’ll be the last Canon I buy – seriously looking at Sony mirrorless now

      I think everyone is, though I think there’ll always be a market for SLR purists who want the bigger bulky bodies. Toyed with the idea of a large sensor compact for years since the first G1X but still prefer something solid in my hand

    Funny, Sony comes out with them 3-4 years ago and they are serious workhorses. Canon finally comes out with one and its described as a ‘novelty’.

    If a good camera comes from it, what does “too late” mean exactly? Do people not buy new things?
