The Next EOS M in 2014 [CR2]
« on: November 11, 2013, 02:53:22 PM »

Early 2014

The expected launch of the Canon EOS M2 appears to be happening in early 2014 according to a good source. The new camera won’t be much of a departure from the current EOS M, although it will be smaller and provide a better AF experience. It’s expected the 20mp sensor from the 70D will be present in the new camera.


Apparently this launch was delayed until the new year and was originally planned for August/September of 2013.

For the love of god, Canon. Stick the 70D sensor in a G1X style body with a good EVF and create some EF-M lenses with an aperture ring. There is no shame in copying Fuji when sales are falling. It...would...sell!

I thought earlier reports suggested that the new M would have a VF?   Wonder if that is off the plate now?

I'm sure Canon has different models ready or in the plans. However, they think the consumer market is bigger than the prosumer market. So no EVF this time.

Sony continues to innovate while Canon delays and underwhelms.  Hope this report is wrong.

Exactly my thought.  I'm hoping maybe that's a misinterpretation and perhaps they mean lighter.  The M could stand to lose a few ounces - it's like a brick!

Fine by me.  EVF = bigger, and for me, smaller = better.  I like my M, I'll get the M2 and have an IR conversion done on my M.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I would like to have a better/bigger grip, it won't make it too large.
I don't miss EVF ;)

P.S This system needs more small lens!
I personally would appreciate 40 or 50/2, 80 or 100/2

Ideal system for me =
  • M + 70D sensor (improved if possible - that's ALWAYS appreciated but in this case, unlikely)
  • Focus peaking + panoramic capabilities
  • 11-22 released in US
  • 35 f/2 IS STM
  • 50 or 60 f/2.8 IS STM macro
  • smallest possible telephoto including IS and STM of course.  I'll sacrifice maximum aperture and focal length for size.  For instance a 50-150 or a 75-150.  Max aperture of 4.5 at the wide end is fine with me as long as it's sharp wide open - no reason to think it wouldn't be given the other STM offerings

To me, all of that plus the EF-M 22/2 and 18-55 IS STM represents a VERY complete system for the VAST majority of people.  Anyone wanting anything beyond this would be well served by the EF to EF-M adapter.

To me, this is AWESOME and quite complete!

If they wanted to offer an optional EVF, that's fine too!

Just got back from Italy with both the 5DIII and the EOS-M.... M was useful indoors and at night... but totally useless in daylight. EVF would be nice... how much bigger/heavier would it be????.... even a old style "range finder" would make it more useful in daylight. What am I missing????
5D3, SL1, M1 and more lenses than I know what to do with! Been shooting w/Canon since 1985.

EF-M 35mm f/2 (preferably with IS) would get me excited  8)
