CanonRumors is reporting that Canon plans to unveil two new cameras in June, not counting any PowerShot updates. One of the expectations is their long-awaited mirrorless debut, but that rumor has been swilling around for over a year.
If these rumors are to be believed, and CanonRumors is citing more than one source, Canon will be releasing the EOS 650D (otherwise known as the T4i) as well as a yet unnamed mirrorless camera. With the mirrorless industry growing by leaps and bounds, it's a wonder that Canon has been so quiet for so long. Since the Nikon 1 was met with little more than a "meh" and with the Sony NEX selling so well, Canon fans are of course hoping that Canon's camera will be more of a "wow" and unseat the only entrenched popular choice in the Sony.
Some rumored specs on the supposed mirrorless:
- APS-C likely
- 14 or 24 megapixels
- EF compatible, but not an EF mount
- 3 to 5 lenses upon launch
