Back in August, we spent a bit of time reading between the lines about a “retro” influences Canon camera from comments made by a Canon executive. This topic was brought up in response to the hype around Nikon’s Zf retro camera body.
Now it appears Canon is actively asking customers which of their most iconic camera bodies customers would like to see again, but with a modern take.
According to The Federation of Independent Photographers, Canon has been officially conducting market research through multiple channels getting feedback from Canon shooters about which camera they’d like to bring back.
The top 4 choices for a retro inspired EOS camera are the Canonet QL17, Canon P, Canon F-1 and the top selling Canon AE-1.
While there are a few “Debbie Downers” out there that are on the ol’ “who cares what a camera looks like?” high-horse, we have seen a lot of excitement on the possibility of Canon paying homage to at least one of their iconic camera bodies.
If we had a choice, we’d make two retro style cameras. A Canonet QL17 fixed lens camera body along with the Canon AE-1.
