Re: APS-C

You may be right, but it would be a pity if they did that. Using APS-C is a poor decision, as the 3:2 format's image circle requires larger lenses, which is what makes NEX cameras look so strangely unbalanced. It's generally a waste, as most people who print do so in formats narrower than 3:2. That part of the frame gets cropped away, and you are carrying a bigger lens for no reason.

My bet is that their mirrorless system will be something like Sony's: APS-C, with at least one premium body (a la nex 7), great ergonomics, but with a better selection of lenses to start with. Little or no silver bling. Something prosumers might find tempting. In fact, I think that once Canon gets into mirrorless, there will be quite a earthquake in the mirrorless community.
