300mm-lens-imgA new patent surfaced over the web that clearly shows a new lens by Olympus with F4 aperture and built in image optical-stabilization system,

    • Published 2015.6.4
    • Filing date 2013.11.27

Canon may Join M4/3 Group

Canon-Micro-Four-Third-Camera-creative-image Canon Micro Four Third Creative Image

In an interview Mr Makoto Sakaeta Masaya, (managing director of Canon Image Communication Business Division) said to DC.watch that Canon may announce a new & small system camera based on entirely a new mount (other than EF, EF-S and EF-M mount), so the only mount left in front of Canon is M4/3 mount. The Canon representative also confirmed future commitment to the current EF-M and EOS M lineups

The interview is perfectly translated by user Mistral75 first published on chassimages.com

He says Canon are exploring the possibility of a new mount (distinct from EF, EF-S and EF-M) for a ‘new generation’ camera system with R&D efforts focussing on a new communication interface between the camera body and lens, new optic design and new sensor design, the goal being to downsize the camera system whilst maintaining an image quality comparable to that of the EF system.

He adds that a high image quality will be very difficult to obtain with a smaller sensor since there is a limit on the number of photons that can be captured per unit area.

The optimal sensor size shall take into account the need to downsize the system whilst maintaining a quality comparable to that of EOS 6D and 5D Mark III with EF lenses today. Improvements in the photoelectric conversion efficiency (sensor, optical design, image processing) could lead to smaller sensors in the future. Determine the optimal solution for sensor size will be a major R&D theme for Canon.

He therefore points at the possibility for Canon to use smaller sensors (smaller than APS-C, the interviewer even makes an explicit reference to µ4/3) and never makes any allusion to a new 24×36 mount, either mirrorless or mirrored.

sensor-all
Now a M4/3 system camera from Canon is almost confirmed, but Canon took approx 3 years to announce Sony RX100 M3 competitor Canon G7 X, so we just hope that Canon will bring a M4/3 system camera within 2015-16.
