Recently Canon launched their latest mirrorless camera in the form of the EOS M6. So far Canon¡¯s mirrorless efforts have been largely focused on consumers, so the question is could Canon some day launch a mirrorless EOS M camera system that could be aimed at the professional market?
Speaking in an interview with DPreview, the company¡¯s execs revealed that a professional-grade EOS M camera is possible. When asked, ¡°Do you think there could be a professional-level EOS M model sometime in the future?¡±, they replied by saying, ¡°Obviously we think it could be possible, there is a potential, but we do not want to put a time frame on that.¡±
Basically Canon thinks it¡¯s possible but maybe this isn¡¯t something that we should expect anytime soon. So far Sony has been kind of leading the charge when it comes to professional mirrorless systems. The company¡¯s full-frame A7 series of mirrorless cameras have been pretty well-received with quite a few industry professionals opting to ditch their DSLRs for the mirrorless system.
Recently Fujifilm also expressed their opinion that the next-generation mirrorless cameras could have the potential to beat DSLRs, which also means that mirrorless systems could soon replace DSLRs inside the bags of professionals, so if Canon doesn¡¯t want to be late to the party, let¡¯s hope that they already have something in mind.
