No surprises here. With Olympus, Sony
, Fujifilm and a slew of others
making fistfuls of cash from their Micro Four Thirds and interchangable
lens cameras, we've since heard that Nikon was also considering jumping
into this market. And now, Canon will evidently be joining them.
According to new reports, the world's largest camera-maker will be
mulling the opportunity to launch a mirrorless model, bringing DSLR-like
quality to a smaller form factor with a few corners cut, ones that most
average folks won't notice.
At this point, it's all speculation; Canon's not going to come right out
and claim that the rumors are true, but it certainly adds up. Being the
world's largest camera-maker heaps a bit of extra expectations on the
company, and they just wouldn't be Canon without being in every camera
segment, right? Right? We'll see -- hopefully by CES next year, they'll
be giving those other guys a run for their money.
