Canon has discontinued the Canon EOS M6 Mark II

We have received reports from two different countries that the Canon EOS M6 Mark II has been discontinued. There will obviously be inventory in various stores around the globe.

With no rumoured successor, we think that this may be the biggest sign yet that the EOS M system is going to be phased out in favour of an RF mount APS-C camera line.

The Canon EOS R7 will be a more “professional” design, but we fully expect Canon to announce an RF mount APS-C camera or two in the future with similar ergonomics as the EOS M series.

More to come…

I don't like this news.
Because I cannot imagine if and what consequences this means to the EOS M system.
I am no M owner. But if I was to get one body It would have been the M6 II. Because I like the idea of the optional EVF.

Edit: In Germany almost every shop has it on stock.

I’m still waiting for the M5 Mk II.
The body which would have made a lot more sense to me than having a flagship have no VF. I enjoyed using our M5, the updated sensor of the M6 ll might have made it a travel champ. Shame.

Suggests that Canon is adopting the APSC format into the EOS R system and discontinuing the EF-M system. Frankly makes sense from a business perspective.

As I already stated I only see two APS-C options for Canon:
1. APS-C in R-system.
2. No APS-C anymore.
Hope for 1.

Once again we can blame pandemic led shortages for this mess we're in, also its surprising M6 II has been dropped so early.

The M50 line may live on, because I doubt that Canon will ever make an R at that price point. The M200 could be a replacement for the PowerShot G7, because both have the same no-viewfinder, no-hot-shoe form factor.

Many have been afraid the M series would die soon. Maybe this is the sign. I really like the form factor of my M50. Will be sad to see the system go, if that is what happens.

If they don't follow up with an M7 announcement that'll solidify my decision to change to Fuji. I don't want a bulky FF mount on an APS-C camera.

I believe it's about time Canon inform us about the M's future.
Presently, I wouldn't dare to invest in this system, there are just too many contradictory news about it. On the one hand, sales are high, on the other hand no novelties and even the news of the discontinued M6 II. I too was waiting for an M 5II...
Sorry Canon, but customers like to know what's going on. Nobody asks Canon to divulge some classified info.
But we'd like to know whether it makes sense to spend our hard-earned money on a system that could be obsolete soon.

As a former owner of the M50. I loved the size of the system, especially with the compact lenses. So this is sad but also good news in a way and I hope it means Canon is working on something similar for the R mount because I miss having a compact camera for travel. Lunging around my R6 w/ the RF 24-105L at Disney was not fun and it really made me wish I still had the compact M series camera.

Canon knows you wouldn't invest in a dead (or dying) system. Therefore they will never tell you!

I can't remember the last time that Canon acknowledged the existence of M. It's never mentioned in their financial documents. It wasn't even mentioned in their "Canon EOS System celebrates 35th anniversary" press release. I want M to continue, but it looks pretty bleak.
