It looks like my previous specifications rumor for the EOS M50 Mark II turned out to be incorrect, let’s hope those specifications are for the second rumored EOS M system camera coming at a later date.
Below is some Google Translated information from Canon marketing material about the upcoming Canon EOS M50 Mark II.
Canon EOS M50 Mark II Information (Google Translated):
Despite being an entry model, it is possible to shoot high-quality still images and videos.

Equipped with a video engine DIGIC 8 and APS-C size, a CMOS sensor with approximately 24.1 million pixels, you can easily enjoy shooting high-quality still images and movies.
Achieves high-definition 4K video recording. Equipped with a “4K frame cutout” function that saves any one frame as a JPEG image of approximately 8.3 million pixels (3840 x 2160).
Equipped with a “digital lens optimizer” that corrects lens aberrations, etc...

So is the 4k still cropped? It does not say that. That would be a big upgrade for some folks.

Better AF, tracking, better AF in video. Seems like a reasonable upgrade for a MKII. May perform like the R6s little brother?

This spec list also makes more sense for the price point we think this should land at.

Not much of an update then! This doesn't say a lot for the M-Series going forward :( At least it should be cheap!

I hope there is an M5 II soon and spec will be better on that model, as you'd expect.

Although a little bit disapointing some more reasonable specs and features for a M50 Mk II.

When I read those previouse specs my initial thought was that they interchanged with the specs of a M5 Mk II.

Same miniscule updates (like Eye tracking) as the 250D (also known as 200D Mark II) with better Instagram support...

I guess that means the pricing stays the same, which ensures that it sells.

This better come below M6 mark II if these specifications are true. Will continue with current dslr till it dies out.

If this camera really comes to the market without DPAF II, old sensor, etc. I'd say it's a complete joke, barely an upgrade at all.

Yeah. I thought those previous rumours were too good with the M6 Mark II around.

This reminds me of the 650D to 700D upgrade where they changed the texture of the mode dial and added some small software tweaks :)

With exception to the EVF, these are all firmware and programming functions. Not hardware unless they changed out the LCD.

Well this made my decision to not upgrade my M50 to the Mk II very easy

Wonder if they have introduced Fv mode and a second dial or other clever way of implementing that?

I might still consider it if they have, but it is starting to sound like a pass for me I’m afraid.

Being the bottom of Canon's mirrorless offerings, I guess it designed to sell lots at a cheap price?

This makes more sense.

It does mean Canon won't sell me another M50, but that is actually not unexpected; from what I've seen a lot of people skip every other mark number, and I guess I'm going to turn out to be one of them. The old M50 is basically a backup/second to my M6-II anyway; if it was my primary APS-C camera then my attitude might be a bit different.
