What does your ‘crystal ball’ say?

I have enjoyed shooting with the Olympus MFT line of cameras for many years, but by my reading MFT has no future. I am considering buying a Canon SL DSLR. I particularly like its small foot print. But, I’ve heard rumors that the APS-C sensor camera may soon go extinct, too. Do you think Canon will continue its SL APS-C camera much beyond the SL3? I haven’t read anywhere about this so I thought you guys may have heard something. Thanks.

Well, if you’re worrying about the lenses, there’s no problem at all 😉
I have a Canon 200D (SL2), but I can fit every EF-lens as well.
You can’t use an EF-s lens on a Full Frame camera, but the other way around is no problem. 🙂
My 50mm-lens is actually an EF-lens.

Yes. The EF mount makes the lenses usable on FF if Canon drops the APS-C sensor, and makes an affordable, entry level FF camera. In that way I guess you could say the SL DSLR has a ‘future’. Sadly it is just a complete dead-end for those of us who are using MFT cameras and lenses.

Yeah, that is possible indeed. :\
I haven’t had a lot of camera’s yet. Before I got my Canon 200D, I only owned one of those Canon Superzooms (SX40HS). So it’s my first ‘real’ camera with changeable lenses. I have a few lenses so far. Obviously, a lot of people claim that Mirrorless is the future, but I don’t think I’ll upgrade as long as I can keep using my DSLR. 🙂
