I just got an email from Canon a moment ago announcing the M2 for mid-December with no price yet. Being 8% smaller, with improved autofocus and wireless built in
Prices in Japan here: http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/20131203_626013.html
Higher than EOS-M now, but lower than when EOS-M was first launched. Oh well, no one is buying till its price drops to current EOS-M level...
Looks like NL rumor (July 7) is quite accurate. See http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/07/the-next-eos-m-cameras-cr1/
"According to a source at NL, Canon is going to introduce a “basic” EOS M 18mp successor first, and follow it up with a 20mp APS-C dual pixel model afterwards. The latter camera is said to be aimed at the “full frame Canon shooter”, and will have an optional viewfinder. This goes along with what we’ve previously been told.
Also in development is a focal length reducer for EF lenses, this will be announced with the 20mp EOS M camera."
Also, later CR2 rumor (Sep 3) http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/09/the-next-eos-m-cr2/
"We’re told that an EOS M announcement is coming soon. This source believes two cameras will be announced simultaneously, although that is not yet confirmed. As mentioned previously, the first camera will be a minor upgrade from the current EOS M and priced much lower than the original EOS M. It will also be available in more colors than the previous model.
A second higher end camera will be have more accessories available for it, such as an EVF. The system will also get a new flash.
A longer telephoto zoom will also be announced alongside at least one of these cameras."
