Canon EOS M2 Got DxOMarked

The Asia-only Canon EOS M2 got DxOMarked. No big surprises here since the EOS M2 sports the same sensor of the Rebel SL1/100D. Interesting to see that the EOS M2 has the same overall score as the EOS M. But the EOS M2 compares well also to more recent Canon APS-C sensors. More after the break.

More comparison:

DxOMark’s conclusion:

While it’s probably fair to say the original EOS M failed to capture the imagination of enthusiasts, the new mount has potential but it remains to be seen whether Canon will expand the range with a more advanced model aimed at more serious users. In the meantime, while it would have been nice to see the EOS M2 adopt the same sensor as the EOS 70D, it’s still an attractive option but right now it may be difficult to find on retailer’s shelves.

In other words: the EOS M2 is an incremental update.

I found the comparison below to be noteworthy . The EOS M2 (and the EOS M) is more or less on pair with the well-regarded sensor of the Canon EOS 7D and the latest generation APS-C sensor featured in the Canon EOS 70D.

The EOS M2 is available for pre-order at Amazon JP, but will not ship out of Japan. Canon EOS M2 specs:

  • 18-Mpix APS-C format CMOS sensor
  • ISO 100-12,800 (ISO 25,600 extended)
  • 4.6 fps burst mode with continuous AF
  • 3.0-inch 1.04k-Dot LCD
  • Full HD 1080 video capture at 30/25/24 fps
  • Advanced Hybrid AF System
  • Built-In WiFi
