EOS M Stock & Shipping Update
« on: July 17, 2013, 04:08:51 PM »
Is the EOS M discontinued?
We’ve received a lot of emails about B&H Photo showing the EOS M w/22mm STM kit as “discontinued”. This has worried a few people that did order cameras that were backordered. I think it’s listed as discontinued on their site so no more can be ordered.

We spoke to B&H Photo today and have been told that all backorders will be fulfilled at the sale price. I didn’t get a date as to when that was happening.

The EOS M is likely reaching end of life and a new EOS M camera should be announced shortly. A second EOS M camera will be coming sometime in the fall we’re told.

You can still get great deals on the EOS M body with the EF-M 18-55 IS STM lens.

EOS M w/18-55 IS STM $349 | EOS M w/18-55 IS STM & 90EX Flash $419

Twenty years from now, this first M will be sold on ebay as a "classic," and all the nostalgia buffs will pay top dollar for them.

Hang on to them if you've got them.

Those with the original firmware would be sold at higher price as they were truly the "original" M by Canon.  ;)

Hopefully this doesn't mean that first version EOS M owners are only going to get the "Hello World!", you had potential, but..., from Magic Lantern.

my girlfriend ordered a white m w/ 22mm from B&H on the 4th and it was back ordered but the new shipment was supposed to get in that day. They eventually got them in this past weekend and shipped out on the 16th. so they are sending out this shipment but they might not get in anymore after filling in the july 4 sale orders.

Canon has introduced a new EF-M lens, so the format is still alive for Canon.

Well, I hope they stop the fire sale soon, that way resale value can go back up.  $300 was a complete steal for a camera of this quality.

resale value on electronics?  is there such a thing given how fast technology changes?

on the other hand, if the life cycle of the 1st gen M is indeed coming to an end, i welcome that with open arms!  for someone who doesn't need to be an early adopter, i love buying late for deep discounts.

it seems odd that Canon is so schitzo about the M. I am wondering if there is an industry shake up about to happen - maybe caused by rumors of new NEX.
I just hope this means that the dam will burst and we'll see a bunch of fast focusing high quality mirrorless (or whatever they are called now) cameras on the market
I know a lot of people will disagree but I'm thinking many entry level DSLRs could be replaced by the mirrorless equivalent of say an SL100.
I thought that the K01 was a pretty cool idea but the designer flop was a huge mistake.
bottom line is focus speed in single shot because many (I'm guessing) entry level users aren't going to use continuous anyway.
something is in the air. this could get interesting!

I'd be interested if I could get this camera with the EF adapter for $350 sans the lens. They just don't interest me. Still a good deal.

Hope this doesnt happen. I bought one from the sale so I could use it with the ML intervalometer.

The two M kits are top sellers on Amazon right now. I wonder if Canon is taking a loss, breaking even, or still making a small profit? If either of the latter, Canon would be wise (IMHO) to keep producing and selling the M at sale prices. Release more M lenses, release a mkII with the 70D sensor, address the minor complaints (focus peaking; more custom dials; etc.). Every person who buys at $299 is a potential lens sale or body upgrade down the road.

Lets face it, no matter how good the camera is it was not priced competitively with the competition. Well, not until the recent "fire sale" deals anyway. It sounds like they are clearing stock for the M2, something which might justify the price tag that canon wants pinned to it. It is not dead, but I think they realise the M did not match people expectations and are probably moving the line along quicker than anticipated in order to grab a slice of the mirrorless pie!

Just my thoughts...  :) ;D
