After years of speculation, Nikon has confirmed that they are working on a next-generation full-frame mirrorless camera. There are also rumors that Canon is working on a similar camera. It looks like the camera giants have finally woken up. Yes, DSLRs will be around for a while and will probably never completely disappear. But, those cameras are the past, like rangefinders. The computer controlled future belongs to mirrorless.
Sony is getting a lot of attention these days as the only full-frame mirrorless manufacturer. Do they have enough of a lead to dominate this next cycle? Will Canon or Nikon reclaim the attention and erase any doubts of being industry laggards? Let’s get ready to rumble. The full-frame mirrorless arena is being prepped and it’s going to be fun to watch.
Is there going to be any spillover to the other smaller sensor mirrorless players? How will Olympus, Panasonic and Fujifulm do?
One thing is for sure, Nikon does have years of experience making cameras. Great cameras with nice user interfaces. Ditto for Canon.
If I ever decide to add a full-frame mirrorless to my collection, which would it be? Sony, despite all the recent excitement, has not enticed. Would Nikon and Canon fare any better? I have full frame Canon lenses for my 6D. Would an EOS lens adapter work well on the Canon mirrorless?
So many unanswered questions. So much fun. For me, this is better than sports.
