Some EOS M Information [CR1]
« on: August 19, 2013, 03:41:25 PM »

The EOS M update

We’re told that an announcement date hasn’t been finalized for the EOS M camera(s), but at least one camera will be available before Christmas of this year.


We’re told again, that there will be two camera bodies announced. One very similar to the current EOS M and a camera that is “higher end”, though it was noted that the “higher end” camera could be pushed into the new year.


Two more lenses are slated for release, a zoom telephoto lens and a macro. No timeframe was given on new lenses.


CR’s Take

I’m still on the fence as to whether or not Canon is truly behind the EOS M system. Canon USA is currently not selling the EF-M 11-22 STM lens. That tells me there could be some internal discussion as to whether or not it is a viable global product line.

Forget new cameras, that macro lens sounds nice...

Looking for UWA lens in pancake style. I don't see the point of zoom for the M.

The 11-22 isn't released YET. Doesn't mean the M is being abandoned. To think like that is irrational hysteria.

IMO, too many people who have never overcome adversity are talking too loudly about the M system. Success rarely comes without significant and numerous failures. Good business people know that.

While it may have taken a fire sale to get people on board - those who actually have bought it seem to like it! IQ and build is nice - they just need to get the right camera at the right price and I think they'll have a winner.

It would make me very happy to see a pancake EF-M 35 mm f/1.8~2.0 for portraiture.

Having now owned one of the M's, I certainly think it is a system worth investing in.  I don't yet have the 11-22 (debating whether or not I need it), but friends that have gotten one say it is a great lens.  But the M is a fantastic travel camera because it produces great images in such a compact package.  And since the update the AF speed is good enough 90% of the time and will only get better with new models.

I too think that the primary source of new lens development needs to be in pancake primes.  It is the form factor with the 22mm that makes the M so attractive to me.

P.S.  I'm having a great time playing with my legacy glass on the M.  An M with a Helios 44-2 on the end makes for a sweet combo.

The EOS-M is underrated. After using it this weekend for a couple CU wildlife shots, I'm convinced. I hope Canon USA stops the snobbery and gets on board.

Why should people overcome adversities to support imperfect product (only blind fanboys do that)? I never heard any romantic poetry about EOS M before this crash $299 sale  :D :D :D
Success also involves clear understanding of past failures and deficiencies. The current model really sucks for anything moving. And unless that is corrected it won't make any inroads into huge family photography market.  Crash $299 sales are good for recouping some money through accessory sale but not enough to make product successful.

Fair enough.  Can you please point us in the direction of that 'perfect product' your statement implies exists?  ::)
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

How about something that sells spectacularly well, far beyond expectations and makes incredible profits for its manufacturer? There may not be such a thing as a "perfect" product but, according to the marketplace, the original M body was thoroughly imperfect. I also don't see why it is a sign of good character ("overcome adversities") to waste money on that bad a product.
