I’m not a Canon fanboy. I admire most camera companies. But I’m heavily invested in Canon (1 DSLR with 5 lenses and various accessories) so I’m interested in what Canon is doing.
Just saw a pictures of the purported Canon mirrorless – I’m not impressed. I still like the retro looks of Fuji X-Pro1, even the Olympus OM-D with the faux-prism-hump. The camera seem to lack external control but it is small (not NEX small but small enough) and the lens (22mm f2.0 so far) is proportional to the camera. I hope it has EF and EF-S compatibility (even with adapter).
Canon will also announce an entry-level full-frame camera – probably with 5D Mk II or Mk III sensor, 7D autofocus, built-in flash and cheaper (mostly plastic body). I just hope that it’s not very expensive and not more expensive than Nikon’s rumored D600. This will probably be my chance to go full-frame.
Here’s to waiting. Here’s to Canon!
My Canon gear – 15-85mm, 18-135mm, 7D with 50mm, 100mm Macro, 10-22mm
