Lost in the madness that is all the new products over the next couple of weeks is the EOS M. There will not be any EOS M announcements for Photokina, which I think is totally understandable. Nothing in the Canon lineup brings about as much hype as a new EOS 5D body.
The good news is that we will see a new EOS M camera and a lens announced in 2016. I suspect we’ll see it before CES 2017 which starts on January 5, 2017 in Las Vegas.
What we know about the coming EOS M:
- It will be a replacement to the EOS M3, but it won’t be called “M4”. Say hello to the M5.
- It will go slightly up market from the EOS M3.
- It will be APS-C.
- A new lens will be announced alongside it, an EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS is a good bet.
- We cannot confirm DPAF or 4K.
That’s all for now, but expect to hear some more over the coming weeks.
