Buzz has been slowly building that Canon is finally pushing seriously into the professional mirrorless camera market, with the company confirming that themselves recently. Now, it seems that the camera is in the hands of a few test photographers.
Canon Rumors is reporting that not only is Canon's full-frame mirrorless camera in development, a few pro photographers actually have prototypes in their hands. Actual information about specifications is still very hard to come by, and the overarching question surrounding the lens mount remains unanswered. Canon's attempts at mirrorless models have been mostly underwhelming to this point, though the company specifically stated that they chose to focus on the entry level market first before turning their attention to the professional realm.
With the Sony a7R III proving itself to be a monster of an all-around camera and Fuji's loyal following continuing to grow, many are waiting on both Canon and Nikon to put forth their own serious mirrorless cameras. One thing is for certain: the next year or so is going to be very interesting for the camera market and could provide a lot of competition to stimulate growth and development of mirrorless technology.
