At a Sony presentation in Germany The German Journalist Martin Vieten got this small updated FE lens roadmap. It’s slightly different from the English Photokina roadmap as it hints that “many FE primes” will be announced in late 2015. And Martin also got a hint directly from Sony: One of the fast primes will be a portrait lens.
Dpreview interviewed Mr. Masaya Maeda from Canon Inc. and there are many statements about Canon mirrorless efforts:
1) Masaya says that Canon Japan would like to sell the EOS-M3 in USA but it’s Canon USA that doesn’t want that. Note: Here at Mirrorless rumors there is a name for that situation…we call it “Schizophrenia” :)
2) Masaya says that looking at all of the mirrorless cameras out there, there’s nothing that really frightens us. Note: Here at Mirrorless rumors there is a name for that situation…we call it “Delusional disorder” :)
A part of those two “diseases” Masaya shared some actual good news too:
1) He promised there will be more lenses for the EOS-M system
2) He also hinted a possible 4K GH4 competition coming from Canon
NAB show is coming in April and let’s hope to see that new EOS-M 4K Canon there!
According to rumors on the web Canon could launch a total of four mirrorless cameras in 2015. If that’s true than Canon will really make a serious step into the mirrorless world. Wondering now if among them there will be a Full Frame mirrorless camera too…
UPDATE: A source specified that this inlcudes both Mirrorless cameras for the EOS-M system and mirrorless for 4K cine camcorders.
