New bits about Canon’s mirrorless plans surface on the web. The rumor suggests there will be two Canon mirrorless cameras set to be announced in 2016. One should be the replacement for the EOS M3, the other one may be the fabled full-frame mirrorless camera many of us would like to see.
The EOS M3 replacement is said to come with the sensor of the Canon EOS 80D and to have some minor ergonomic changes. The other, the full-frame mirrorless camera, is said to be “prosumer-oriented”, and to feature a newly designed 24MP sensor. And it should be possible to use EF lenses.
Finally, there may also be new EF-M lenses set to come.
This rumor strongly recalls an interview with Masaya Maeda of last year.

German company Meyer Optik Görlitz is teasing a new lens launch. The lens will be announced on April 14 at 11am London time.
Thanks to our friends at Sony Alpha Rumors, we have what likely is the first leaked sample picture shot with this upcoming lens. It’s the image below, shot by photographer Firat Bagdu.
The look of the new Meyer Optik Görlitz lens is historic but the internal lens design is new. This will be Meyer’s most technologically advanced lens. It’s also near-macro glass. Rumor has it the specs are the same of one of the historic Meyer Optik lenses. You may take a guess wich of the following Meyer lenses resembles the upcpoming lens most:
- Primoplan 25mm f/1.9
- Lydith 30mm f/3.5
- Primagon 35mm f/4.5
- Trioplan 50mm f/2.5
- Primoplan 58mm f/1.9
- Telefogar 90mm f/4.5
The lens will be available with Canon, Nikon, MFT, Fuji, and Leica mount. Stay tuned…[via Sony Alpha Rumors]
