This will be followed by the EOS M1000, the EOS M10000, the EOS M100000 etc..

or perhaps M101, M110, M1000, M1001, ..

Remember there was the A-1

Contemporary with the F-1n... The EF, the predecessor of the A-1 did not have a number IIRC.



Welcome, BTW. :-))

Obviously, Canon did not actually expect that mirrorless cameras would catch on.  Since their higher end bodies have lower numbers, the M series is a goofy jumble.

I look for a new series when pro level bodies come along, Maybe even a 2 letter designation like DM for Digital Mirrorless.  We used to have two letter designations, they can happen again.

Yep. I get it.  Let's be concerned what what it is called and not what what it will do.

exactly. Always amazes me how many forum users here are "obsessed" with Canon naming/numbering schemes etc. rather than focussing on functionality and competitiveness of Canon imaging products.

There is a reason, its about trying to figure out which model is the high end, enthusiast, or entry level.  One of Canon's strengths has been naming models so I can figure them out without memorizing them all.  I just imagine the confusion that someone who does not deal with the model numbers every day would have.  Nikon is OK this way, but has also changed horses when their numbering system failed.  Sony may have a system, but its not easy to understand.

It does not matter what the numbering scheme is. We forum users know that it will be wrong, and we know that a bad numbering scheme means that Canon is doomed!

They should have made the number scheme chronological.......
They should have done it by feature.......
They should have done it by megapixels.....
(all at the same time)

There's a difference between saying it's a confusing numbering scheme (it is), that it could be better (it could), and Canon is doomed (it's very much not).  The numbering "scheme" does bug me, but clearly not enough to, y'know, change my preference. :)  But some of us do like order and sense, and will point out when things appear random or poorly-planned, even if the products are good.

one set of numbers says everything about any makers product lineup ... the price tag. It is a very precise indicator how the manufacturer would like to position its products ... justified or not justified, competitive or not ... ;-)

it will reliably work even when the products were named apple sl-2, banana 1300, cherrry 5 Mk IV ...

I bought a 5D MK IV and 2 weeks later a SL-2 for $511 or 1/6 the price.  The SL-1 is a crop and missing  a few bells and whistles, but the images come out just as good as a more expensive camera, that surprised me a little, its been years since I've owned a crop body.  Outer AF points are not a issue to me, except that I expect to use the camera mostly in live mode, so I just touch the subject I want to be in focus.  That works very well over a reasonable portion of the area, so I don't need a zillion phase detect AF points.  Of course, I love the 5D MK IV, but wonder about why the 6X+ difference in price.
