The Next EOS-M
If you were hoping for a quick update to the EOS-M, apparently we won’t be able to buy one until the second half of 2013. The next model will indeed have an electronic viewfinder, something Canon omitted from the current EOS-M apparently because their EVF technology was not ready for prime time. It’s also mentioned that a viewfinder on the next EOS-M will not be a hybrid ovf/evf like some of the competition.
Looking for a retro EOS-M? Not happening according to the story, the design of the next EOS-M will be in the same style as the current model.
I’ve been told that the announcement will come in late Q1, early Q2 in 2013. A lot can change between now and then though.
