Oh little EOS M. What are you going to do now that Sony has launched their EF-capable A7 and A7R?

If the past offers any predictive value, the "little EOS M" will be less expensive, more portable, more reliable and more profitable.  The A7's look good on paper; but profit rules, and Canon knows how to do that.

I really do hope the A7's perform well, both in use and in the market: that would create pressure on Canon, and these are the kinds of bodies I'd like Canon to produce.  I'm not, however, holding my breath for Sony to offer any legitimate market-based competition.

Other bit is that, regardless of size of the body, there are certain physics constraints that will make the lenses tend to be larger and heavier for FF than APS-C. Simple fact of physics, so the EOS-M will likely still, in general, remain a bit smaller/lighter when it comes to lenses.
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8

I just hope Canon's new announcement is nothing like the A7R. I don't want a FF mirrorless just for the heck of it ... poor AF, poor burst rate and 300 shots with a fully charged battery ... ugh!

Canon if you are coming up with a mirrorless FF, I'll need a proper camera.

EOS-M II is a different story all together. I'd  buy it if only they improve the AF on the damn thing.

i played with the A7R at the NYC photo expo.  Most impressive and paper and in your hands the first time but it still has not solved the AF and battery issues.  Someone is going to get mirrorless right soon,  I thought this might be it but perhaps not.  The Olympus OM-D EM-1 seemed like the real deal and was the best mirrorless I've seen so far.  Good focus, excellent viewfinder, well, built, weather proof, large deep selection of good lenses.  Maybe not the sense of the Sony, but completely lens lines provide for choice in quality and price.  Best mirrorless out there today.  Got to have that view finder and I'm not so sure Canon will provide

What if it is a 1DXs? After all it is CR1 and there is no harm in daydreaming!

Jokes aside, if there is anything new, I guess it will be a lens.

With the timing and involvement of retailers, my guess (if this is true) is that it's something that will be available for the holiday shopping season. That could be anything from a new G- or S-series Powershot to a lens or new EOS M. I doubt it would be an announcement for a next-year release (why involve retailers, otherwise?).

A new EOS M wouldn't be hard for Canon to do. They'll probably just slap the 70D sensor into the existing M body, throw in some new creative filters and maybe a new lens (or announce the EF-M 11-22MM will be available in the USA).

Done. A "new" model just in time for the holiday shopping season...

Cannot happen.  I thought there was a law out there somewhere that Canon was not allowed to have a fast 50mm with good build, good bokeh and reliable auto focusing.  There are options to pick one or two but not all 3.

EOS M2. Same size as EOS-M. DP-AF sensor and absolutely all capabilities and features found in the 70D (except the flapping mirror and prism). "Retina" EVF included.  EF-S and EF-adapter included in package. Priced @ 999,- including 18-55 STM.

Instant win. Wait lists well into 2014.  :-)

Unfortunately greed has made Canon too stupid to even think about this.

Add a separate speedbooster-like adapter that doesn't affect AF (or not too much) and I'll be buying one.

Its not greed, its business.  Mirrorless sells horribly across all manufactures compared to DSLR, so why would Canon stack their resources in a category that fails to sel?

Canon is believed to be revamping their line of old Non-L Primes. It started with the 24mm f/2.8 IS, and the latest, the 35mm f/2 IS. My bet is they're redesigning the non-L 85.

This set up my hopes (its source is Canon Rumors itself). Only CR1 though, but it's enough to cross my fingers and get excited about the possibility! http://petapixel.com/2013/10/09/rumor-canon-may-replace-50mm-f1-4-high-end-50mm-f1-8/

Probably just another printer.

If it is a camera then it is too late (unless it is immediately available) for people to buy for the holiday season.

About all it could do is stop people buying other brands during that time.

But I think the public is growing tired of Canon...
