Noisestash: PLEASE let this be Canon’s mirrorless camera

Show us what you got!

First off, a really BIG┬ácaveat here: This is not in any way an official mock-up. It’s one guy’s vision/fantasy as to what Canon should be aiming for when putting together their mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC). But that doesn’t make this concept any less “want” worthy.

The mock comes with a fanciful list of proposed specs including a 50mm “prime” lens to substitute a more traditional/cheaper kit lens that we’re used to seeing in bundled packages. The full list is the stuff that pros and enthusiasts would seriously consider throwing money at:

  • Full-frame body
  • 18.1MP sensor – the one found in the 1DX no less
  • Built-in Flash
  • A new CM-D mount based on the old FD mount for size and maximize expandability
  • 50mm f/1.0L “kit” lens
  • Removable electronic viewfinder with Canon’s “prism” design

Based on the proposed list, Canon’s first MILC would easily be the most expensive camera of it’s kind (yeah, probably a lot pricier than Olympus’ OM-D) but would definitely attract the attention of pro and semi-pro photographers. So Canon, if you’re reading, we’d love to see something that combines the retro-styling of an SLR of yesteryear with the muscle of today’s DSLRs.
