I post too Much on Here!!

Definitely agree that no one here knows the fate of the M-series. However, I presume that a VP and country-level CEO for Canon is likely to have at least some knowledge of the fate of the M-series, and one of those individuals explicitly stated the line would see future updates. For him to state that publicly is significant, because he would have known in advance what he could and could not reveal about Canon's plans.It is quite amazing that people can spend pages and pages of arguments on a subject that they don't know the answers to.
Question to those who feel like that they are on a mission to convince others that the M system is dead and will be discontinued. What exactly are you trying to prove? We don't know the answer as to what will happen to the M system, and yet you seem to be adamant that you do know. Trying to show everyone here that you have brilliant predictive powers? Or what exactly?
What do we know?
The M system makes up 30% of Canon's sales.
The M6 II is apparently discontinued, at least in some markets.
Canon is releasing APS-C cameras.
All the rest is speculation.
Who has the guts to admit they don't actually know what will happen and that all of their arguments regarding the demise of the M system are just a waste of time and effort? And that name-calling and insults when people confront them with the facts are just immature and border on trolling?
Anybody have the guts??
As you say, we know that the M system comprises 30% of Canon's camera sales. Letting that market segment wither away is certainly not in Canon's best interest. Honestly, I'm not sure how it's in anyone's on this forum's best interest to have fewer camera choices. I was completely wrong about Canon launching an APS-C EOS R, but for photographers in general I'm quite happy that I was wrong about that.
I suppose maybe the argument is that if Canon stops making [insert products I don't personally want], then they'll develop and launch [insert products I spend my nights dreaming about fondling], just for me. Lol.
