So if these specs end up being true, I'm going to be a very happy EOS-M owner. There is a lot of potential with this camera system and this would really a whole lot of camera. That said, I will reserve my excitement until you guys feel more comfortable with the level of credibility. Right now, this just seems like a pipe dream from someone.
Don't lose hope...M system is going to stay for a very very long time. I remember lens maker (forgot which one) rates the M mount the best and easiest to design a lens and also in line with that, Sigma just recently announced amazing high end primes for the M - 16, 30 & 56 all at f1.4 adding even more value to the M system, where DPAF adding more value to owning 3rd party lens because it works so well!

Unfortunately, you're wrong. You can see zoom-lock switches in the mockups.


I could be very wrong, and also, with that beefy heavy elements, zoom lock is required even for internally zooming lenses. But still hoping on: "if true" ;)

Let's wait and see, it's around the corner.

I love my M5, especially for video, as it's so small and light.
Looking forward to the new one, especially if the specs as stated are anwhere close to what reality will be.

The M lenses are pretty good considering their price and light weight. If I need anything better or more specialised, I just use one of my L lenses on the adaptor.

It is a certainty. Be advised. ;)

30fps focus stack woop woop!
HDR stack is prolly impressive too,maybe stopping waves now

it was direct competitor Fujifilm (!) stating the obvious: that EF-M mount has the best possible specs for APS-C image circle, yielding largest possible universe of optical lens designs. :)

"Canon knows lens mounts"! EF-M absolutely perfect for APS-C, RF absolutely perfect for FF. 2 sensor sizes, 2 product lineups. 1 limited lineup of focal lengths that can be done "small and inexpensive" (EF-M) plus 1 full lineup including all exotics (RF).
EOS M & EF-M system is here to stay. best bang for the buck. 45% of FF sensor surface at about 45% of FF price. at least if you don't pre-order but wait a bit for prices to settle. :)

surprised about M6 II. thought Canon would consolidate M5/M6 into 1 model with pop-up EVF.

apparently they think there are lots of vloggers and selfie-maniacs out there willing to buy a camera without viewfinder in addition to their phones.

personally i am only interested in model with built-in EVF -> M5 II or M50 II. :)

Not to pick on you, but I get pretty sick of these kinds of comments. From 2005 to 2012 Canon had exactly two full frame DSLRs. That's seven years. In six months they introduced two EOS R bodies and there are pretty good indications that they will have one or two more in the next year. I get it. They have not released the body that you personally want, so they are moving slowly.
i think he's more talking about the joke of an EF-m lineup...it's weird they're totally half-assing the M line...no fast lenses...just put out a couple f2.8 zooms at least...hell even an f4 zoom would be nice...most the zoom lenses go to f5.6 or 6.3

i'm just hoping this new sensor is in the 90D

Sensor resolution is 32.5MP. The camera would should 4K with no crop and no binning. So the camera is going to record 4K by reading every 4th pixel (= skipping)?

Added to that the amazing EF/EF-S lenses which works flawlessly on both M & RF mount with a native adapter!

This is the first time I've seen anything referred to as a DSLM, I always thought MILC was the acronym?
Could be that it's not what most people call them. DSLM came from the time when people called them all kind of things, like system cameras and even stupid names like EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder interchangeable lens). MILC reads like milk in my eyes, so I adapted DSLM. It sound the most familiar and least stupid to me. We don't call DSLR RILC, after all, so why change the style?

Guess I'll have to change what I use if people don't know what it means.

High-speed continuous shooting at a maximum of 16 FPS (with AE/AF)
RAW Burst mode at 30 FPS (with AE/AF)
4k 30p with no crop or pixel binning
Full HD up to 180p (I guess admin or source meant to say 180fps?)
All these are not even closer to normally what Canon delivers. Canon is a company even if they can do it technically they will not offer these in a camera at this level. Good amount of salt required here.
Can't agree with you there.

Canon is the type of company that delivers what they need to stay on top. They revolutionized the industry with AF and going EOS. They did it again with the 5D line. Between those big steps, that made them and kept them as industry leader, they gave us things to nibble on. Now with the current state of the market, what did you expect them to do?

Basically they milk whatever tech they develop to death. That makes proper business sense right? So their pre on board ADC chips, they milked that to death. We complained, and it was obvious that sony was pulling way ahead in that department. Did they do a complete redesign? Nope, they tweaked and changed things to place on board ADC to close the gap.

NOW, with the RF line, and FF MILC, where the sensor needs to be constantly read out, data crunched etc, the old mold no longer fits. YET AGAIN, they still put in their older sensor tech to hold them over (the R and RP). However, of course they were going to have to redesign the whole thing, sensor for faster readout, IBIS compatibility etc etc. It makes no financial or engineering sense to go through the effort of that level redesign to this level only to aim lower than possible for the same amount of money. They needed to aim for big tech jump from their position. WHY? For us? Of course not. For them.

A big jump forward is their usual business strategy followed by a slow walk. It will boost interest, potentially place them firmly at market leaders once again, with the new revolutionary RF system... and then?? Think they will develop at breakneck speed as sony? Nope. If they deliver more than good enough in one go, they will simply sit back and do what canon does best. Focus on user experience since that matters a lot with how you impress the regular consumer, and milk the hell out of their new tech.

After all, if they can give you a FF camera that does 12+ fps with no black out, 1/16000 E-shutter, better DR than the 5DIV, then what does sony really have to offer over that? 20 fps? Better DR (by like what 0.5 to 1 stop)?... That would be kind of it, and most regular people would shrug that off. The differentiation becomes... THE LENSES. Those RF lenses that pretty much no reviewer has complained about. By eliminating the majority of what sony can claim it does better, canon moves focus onto the optics, which is what they are pretty much best at.

Fair enough. The missing piece of the puzzle is where Canon is on sensor and processor development. Are they about to pull another rabbit out of the hat? We shall see. Or not.
