Well, this is probably more a joke than a rumor. However, since our mission here at CanonWatch is to report everything that’s in some way related to Canon, we cannot miss this one. The rumor comes from NL and it states:
Now for one from leftfield that I was told personally, yesterday. The suggestion was that Canon and Nikon are doing some patent swapping and that in return for various Nikon patent licenses, Nikon are going to produce an EF mount camera.
Sounds weird, doesn’t it? And a little bit late for an April Joke too :-) And since we are talking about “Canikon”, I think a little video that makes fun about a hypothetical merge of both brands is more than appropriate. Enjoy, it’s funny to see the “camera that combines the best of both worlds”, The Canikon 1D3s. :-)
