The Next EOS M? [CR1]
« on: February 24, 2013, 09:29:53 AM »
Canon’s next mirrorless?
Along with last week’s 7D spec list, we also received what is said to be the next EOS-M camera. A lot of people haven’t jumped on the EOS-M system yet, whether it’s the bad rap the AF gets, or the lack of lenses in the system, sales are quite weak for the little EOS camera. Most people seem to want something a little bit higher end, or at least be able to add accessories to improve the usability of the camera.

Specifcations

  • 24mp APS-C Sensor
  • New generation AF system
  • DIGIC V
  • Removable Electronic Viewfinder (Very high resolution)
  • Optional grip attachment
  • 5fps
  • Slightly larger than the current EOS M
  • Introduced with 3 more lenses
  • $999 USD

Now, all of that sounds like pretty much everyones wish list, so take this CR1 rumor with a grain of salt. I will say that the next EOS M camera is definitely pointing to being higher end from other information we’ve received. An entry level EOS M system camera could be coming in early 2014 and sit in the sub $500 category.

If they can somehow make the AF decent enough (at least at rebel level of speed), I think EOS M will have a lot of buyers, not only those from the beginner/enthusiast level but also from the professional level (as a very handy backup camera).

Got my pitchfork ready. Any other 1st Generation EOS M owners want to join me in angrily marching on Canon's Headquarters?

I would be happy if the camera had good autofocus and took my eos lens ( with an adapter).   I don't need an APS-C sensor.

The main thing I'd want if I were going to by an M is a standard zoom that folds entirely inside the body when not in use.  Since I don't see that happening, I can't see this system ever becoming interesting.

still yawning and still waiting for a FF MILC, 1st company to do it gets my money.  High performance APS-C DSLR for sports & wildlife + relatively compact FF mirrorless for street and portraits is my idea setup...

Canon tele-compressor for extra speed and to widen out my EF lenses. Like meta bones.

I don't understand... Could you explain? This is not sarcasm or trolling.... I really don't understand and hope you can explain it to me.

I am very interested to see what they have done with autofocus. This could be serious competition to the micro 4/3 market.

Not likely to happen, the laws of physics are against it.  People want things that only a small sensor allows, but with a large sensor, lenses get much larger, AF gets slower, you can't have everything.
Canon decided to go the way of high IQ and low light sensitivity.  Those wanting a different mix do have a choice, there are one inch sensor bodies out there that balance the mix differently.

Got my M back in January because I was hoping that the firmware would be able to fix up the autofocus, but turns out it couldn't. T_T
