I believe this rumor has been debunked. If this is true ... could be really amazing! Canon EIS 60 revealed - high end mirrorless camera with pixel fusion technology A high-end Canon mirrorless by the middle of next year. This could really light a fire under Panasonic & Olympus, and make them pay attention to the high end. (So far, Sony's NEX has just confirmed their attention to the GF/Pen segment.) EOSHD.com, which originally published it, at first refused to provide a link to the source - in an open and explicit effort to get more direct hits. I helped them along by linking to them. A number of commenters on other forums (particularly Canon forums that I do not frequent) then pointed out that the thread in the original Chinese source (Canon EIS) had debunked the rumor, referring to the original poster as a "rumor felon". In fact, xitek.com moved the thread to their "groundless" section. The substance of the rumor seems eminently plausible to me. Even the less likely items (like the 22Mb sensor, the new sensor technology, and the barrage of announced lenses) are in keeping with previous Canon practice. If (when) Canon does enter this market, I expect them to do so with all guns firing at once, with the intent of getting the same plurality stake here that they have in the DSLR market. But if this is all one guy's fantasy, the specifics in the rumor are completely irrelevant.
