In an interview Canon’s Mr. Masaya Maeda cleared that Canon may soon announce a camera that will feature 4k with interchangeable lenses. This camera can be a good marathoner in the race with Sony a7S and Panasonic GH4.
This is what Mr. Masaya said when he asked How are you addressing the demand for compact, 4K-capable cameras like Sony’s a7S and Panasonic’s GH4?
Naturally I can’t give you details of our future plans but we are fully aware that such requirements exist in the market. We’re currently in the process of investigating, mainly to satisfy the needs of news media, and we have every intention of addressing this need in future products.
However, it’s speculating that the Canon 4k camera that we’re talking about would be the successor of EOS-1D X and will be named 1D X Mark II.
