We’ve now been told by a couple of people that an EOS R camera is currently being tested with an APS-C image sensor. One of the sources told us that they don’t know if it will become a consumer product, but that there is some internal discussion about what to do with the EOS M line of cameras and lenses.

I don’t think anyone would be surprised to hear that EOS M may indeed be on the chopping block in the coming years as the EOS R system matures, and we expect it to mature quite quickly.

We believe there will always be a market for APS-C ILC cameras and it it would make a lot of sense for Canon’s mirrorless system(s) to be using a single lens mount.
