Rumor: Canon entry-level full-frame camera for Photokina?

It’s rumor time in the Canon galaxy! After the information about an upcoming mirror-less system by Canon, now another one of my sources notified me that Canon will announce an entry level full-frame camera at Photokina in September. Here the specifications I got:

  • Price tag below $2,000
  • 21MP sensor
  • Weather sealed body, but not at the same level as the EOS 5D Mark III
  • Simpler auto-focus system than the EOS 5D Mark III (could be the AF of the EOS 7D, which, btw, is a very powerful AF system)

I think the rumor is plausible. Nikon is said to introduce an entry-level FF (probably named D600) in the next months, and it is perfectly normal that Canon will try to counter it with an own entry-level FF camera. Let’s see. Looks like we will have a lot to discuss and speculate about in the next months. ;-)
