Some points for DSLRs against mirrorless cameras

At Nikon’s D5 presentation and press conference, the company gave some good points why a (d)SLR is better than mirrorless camera. I think there are some valid arguments in the video. The pro-dSLR talk starts around minute 8.

The Nikon D5 is the company’s new flagship, and does 4K worse than the 4 years old Canon EOS-1D C.

Canon Watch was the first site to report that Canon is working on a full-frame mirrorless camera. Now some more tidbits point in this directions. It’s suggested that

Canon will “surprise a lot of people” with one of their next mirrorless camera

While this new rumor doesn’t explicitly mention a full-frame mirrorless camera, it’s likely that only such a camera could surprise us. The same rumor also suggests that Canon will “no longer playing catch-up” in the mirrorless domain. That Canon is willing to get serious with mirrorless was also posted first here on CW.

The latest reliable rumor I got about a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera dates back to November. It was suggested that Canon’s FF mirrorless camera is delayed because of mount-related issues.

All rumors about a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera are listed here.
