Canon has added another discontinuation to their EOS M camera lineup, this time it's the Canon EOS M50 Mark II, the bestselling EOS M camera. It has been confirmed that the body only kit has been discontinued by Canon Japan, with only the “Double Zoom” kit remaining current.
It's quite rare for Canon to discontinue products before a replacement is announced, but it has happened. We don't think this is one of those cases, but time will tell.
This follows the discontinuation of the EOS M6 Mark II in May and more recently the EOS M200.
There should be inventory of the EOS M50 Mark II for a few months at least and some dealers may decide to split up their “Dual Zoom” kits to sell only the bodies.
We do believe that the EOS R100 will fill the void left by the end of the EOS M lineup and we're really hoping that Canon releases some of the better EOS M lenses in an RF mount.
