Masaya Maeda from Canon got interviewed by David Pardue from Imaging Resource. And there seems to be great news coming from Canon very soon. Mr. Maeda said:
Going forward, and this would be a repeat of what I said before, but we will put more effort into mirrorless, and also, naturally, we will continue to expand the EF-M lens group. In the very near future, I think that Canon will come out with a mirrorless camera that you would really like.
David from Imaging Resource added a note based on his impressions:
[This is very interesting indeed. While the EOS-M3 only recently came to the US, it sounds like a significantly more capable M4 may not be too far in the future. Mr. Maeda’s particularly emphasis that I would like it suggests it will be a model aimed particularly at the enthusiast market. We wonder what features it might include; improved AF seems like a must-have.]
This could be a new EOS-M4 but I think it could also be a much more high-end camera with 4K recording and DSLR style. Let’s see if I am right with my guess. And I think it’s highly likely the new Canon Mirrorless camera will be announced at PhotoPlus.
