Canon may be announcing a new product in its mirrorless line of equipment on September 4 or 5, according to CanonWatch.com. Just what that offering will be is not yet known, but CanonWatch speculates some possibilities.
With Nikon recently teasing a possible full-frame mirrorless camera, CanonWatch speculates that Canon could be following suit with a full-frame mirrorless body of its own. Another intriguing possibility is a next-generation EOS M5, rumored to be the Mark II.
CanonWatch also speculates that a 32mm to 35mm f/1.4 or f/1.8 in Canon's mirrorless lineup could be in the offing.
CanonWatch notes that it had previously published rumors of a major Canon announcement in the second week of September, but it sounds from the story like that rumor was either misinterpreted or the announcement date may have been changed.
Canon's line of mirrorless equipment already leads the market in Japan, as the company has targeted advanced amateur photographers, but adding a full-frame mirrorless body to its lineup could significantly boost its usage among professionals around the world.
