A full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera is a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with a digital sensor the same size as 35 mm format (36 mm × 24 mm) film.[1]

In comparison, full-frame digital SLRs also have interchangeable-lenses but differ in having a reflex mirror. Mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras that have a smaller sensor than full-frame (such as APS-C and Micro Four Thirds) differ in having a crop factor. Digital cameras with a larger sensor than full-frame are called medium format, after medium format film cameras that use the 120 and 220 film formats.

The Leica M9 was the first full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera in 2009, using a rangefinder focusing system.[2][3]

Sony was the first to introduce an autofocus full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, the α7, in 2013.[4][5][6][7] It was followed by the Leica SL (Typ 601) in 2015.[8]

Nikon[9] and Canon[10][11] each launched full-frame mirrorless cameras in September 2018. Also announced in September 2018, the L-Mount Alliance will see Panasonic and Sigma using the Leica L-Mount for their own full-frame mirrorless cameras.[12] Panasonic announced its S1R and S1 cameras,[13] and Sigma announced an as-yet unnamed camera, all to be launched in 2019 along with lenses from Panasonic and Sigma.[14]
