The advent of the EOS R system has put a certain cloud over the future of the EOS M system, but Canon executives continue to say they will invest in the system in the future, though they’ve never really committed to how long into the future we’ll see new EOS M products.
We’re told that the EOS M camera lineup will be addressed in late August with a replacement for at least the EOS M5 and that the EOS M6 isn’t going to see a direct replacement. The source suggested the EOS M lineup will consist of 3 camera bodies in 2020, an EOS M500, EOS M50 and EOS M5 Mark II.
The same source said 2 new EF-M lenses will arrive alongside the new camera body, though what those lenses are was unknown.
