I guess you saw what I did there...

"The new silent mode can shoot without any shutter sound" sounds like an electronic shutter. See, I did it again.

This looks like an upgraded body from the M5: newer processor and upgraded video. Canon will have to reduce the price on the M5, it is not selling well anyway. Still the M series bodies are progressing but where are the lenses?  Why would anyone invest 800-900 for a M body when they the native lens offerings are limited to F6.3 kit zooms? Canon is nuts if they think buyers will use DSRL EOS lenses on these tiny bodies, as it defeats the purpose of a small form factor. If Fuji can develop a whole series of rugged, well regarded fast lenses for the mirrorless cameras in a few years why can't Canon"

I'm sure Canon could develop such a lens lineup.  Why should they?  Enough people have invested in M-series bodies to make Canon the #2 global MILC manufacturer.  In terms of MILC market share, Fuji is essentially last (well, they sell more MILCs than Hassleblad and Leica...BFD). 

"Because you want them" is not a viable reason for Canon to make them.  ::)

It never ceases to surprise me when people confuse “has not done” for “can not do.”

A. Perhaps Canon thinks that the main reason people buy EFM is to have a small total package.  EFM f/4 and f/2.8 zooms are still going to be pretty big, and not inexpensive.

B. Perhaps because there are enough people who are content with using EF lenses for their heavy lens needs.

C. Perhaps simply as a matter of priority.  Cheaper, smaller lenses are easier to produce, demo better in stores, and sell in higher volumes, so why not make them first?

Fuji have to have a "complete" line up of lens in order to sell the camera. Also if look at the price and  weight of the Fuji lenses, they are double of the EF-M lenses.  After using the M for more than 3 year, I do not miss the weight of my Canon DSLR and the large and heavy L lenses. I enjoy the smaller size  and lighter weight of the M system.
If canon start to make fast, big and  heavy zoom, where will they fit in the M system?
