Canon FF mirrorless might NOT be announced in 2018

Canonrumors is rolling back from their previous CR3 rumor saying the FF mirrorless would be announced in 2018:

A couple of other sources I’d consider better have both cautioned me that they don’t think an official announcement for a full frame mirrorless camera coming in 2018 at the time of writing this. Which would be bad news to say the least.

So we are still into the complete dark about Canon’s plan. Nikon on the other hand could announce their first FF mirrorless next week already!

Fuji registered the new X-T3 in China

Fuji registered the new X-T3 camera in China ( What’s a bit unique with that registration is that they even show a silhouette of the camera and this one too:

And thanks to Fujirumors we also have an idea when the camera will be launched and what specs we can expect:

  • Announcement at or before photokina 2018 (end of September)
  • 26MP X-Trans sensor
  • maybe stacked sensor (still do be confirmed by trusted sources, so grain of salt)
  • new processor
  • no IBIS
  • shipping October/November
  • touch screen
  • better battery performance (probably by keeping same battery, since Fujifilm registered a new battery charger for NP-W126s batteries, as reported here)

New EOS M5 II will be announced at Photokina

I know you all want to hear more about the future new Canon Full Frame mirrorless. But CanonWatch reports that there will be a new EOS-M5 II APS-C cameras too:

“We got confirmation from a good source that Canon will announce the second iteration of the EOS M5, that’s the Canon EOS M5 Mark II, ahead of Photokina 2018 (which happens in September).

Not really news here, I get it, we told you before. However, it’s always good to have one more suggestion when it comes to rumors. This is not the first hint we got about the EOS M5 Mark II and its announcement.

The Canon EOS M5 Mark II most likely will have a 28MP sensor. Besides this, so far we only know what has to be considered obvious: 4K video, DIGIC 8 CPU etc.

We expect first specification leaks in the next weeks, and first images of the EOS M5 Mark II in August. It’s 10 weeks to Photokina 2o18.

We expect Canon to also announce a new prime lens for the EOS M system.”
