With the EOS M5 finally hitting store shelves this month, lenses will likely be the next major addition to the system. While rumors about the EOS M have been pretty quiet, we have heard a few things recently.
- The EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM will be discontinued in the not so distant future.
- The EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM has been extremely popular in Asia, which is the #2 market for mirrorless systems.
- The first “higher end” zoom for the EOS M system will be something like a 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, and that there are no constant aperture zooms coming in the near future.
- We will see at least one prime lens in 2017, but that there are 3 currently being tested.
As always, as soon as we hear more, we’ll pass it on.
