Rumours of Canon full-frame mirrorless launch heating up
Just 11 days after Nikon announced its first two full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Z6 and Z7, rumours websites are buzzing with reports that Canon is about to make a full-frame mirrorless revelation of its own.
canonrumors.com reports the Canon EOS R and several native RF lenses will be announced as early as this week.
While they're only rumours, the site suggests the new model will be built around a 30.3 megapixel full-frame sensor and will offer 4K video, dual-pixel CMOS AF and an articulated touchscreen LCD.
Like the Nikon mirrorless cameras, the new model is expected to ship with a mount adapter allowing the camera to be used with Canon's range of EF and EF-S lenses.
The first native lenses specifically designed for the new R-system are expected to be the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM, RF 50mm f/1.2L USM, RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro and RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.
Japanese camera website Nokishita is the source of most of the rumours and the site recently published what it claims are leaked specs and images of the new camera. A selection of images are published below. Stay tuned.
