Sony A7 III can be the worst nightmare Canon and Nikon over the years face: a full-fat full-frame camera for only $ 2,000. It could reduce the demand for their product - professional / prosumer cameras - at a time when smartphones have already destroyed the traditional consumer point and shooting.
But, apparently, Canon and Nikon are ready to fight with fire, announcing their full-frame mirrorless cameras.
Nikon Rumors announced this week that Nikon is announcing not one, but two full-frame mirror-free cameras by the end of this month, going in August, with a 25-megapixel model, rumored to cost less than $ 3,000 bundled with the lens. (A separate 45-megapixel model can cost about 4000 dollars with a lens).
It is reported that they are reported to have a relatively compact form factor (for example, Sony A7) and 5-axis stabilization (the same), as well as a new mirror-free lens mount.
Previously, Nikon said that by spring of 2019 a high-quality SLR camera will be launched.
On Thursday, Canon Rumors reported that Canon will have two full-frame mirrorless cameras, "until mid-2019," including a 30.4-megapixel model and, possibly, a 24-megapixel model, each of which captures 4K video.
As a fan of DSLR from Canon, I just hope that the new Canon camera can be compatible with my existing lenses. "One reliable source told us that a full camera without a mirror camera and the EF mounting problem have a" sexual "solution," writes Canon Rumors, but it is unclear what this means.
Nikon declined to comment. Canon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
