Canon about the mirrorless competition: “there’s nothing that really frightens us.”

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!

Canon will get serious with Mirrorless and launch 4(!) cameras in 2015.

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.
