Canon Eventually Getting Serious With The EOS M System? [CW2]

A new rumor surfaced, again suggesting Canon will get serious about the EOS M system… next year.

It’s not the first time that rumors suggest a break-through EOS M camera. in 2014 we were told that Canon would take the EOS M system seriously in 2015. Though the EOS M3 appears to be a good attempt (waiting for mine to be delivered), it’s still not convincing anyone Canon is taking it seriously. It’s true that you can virtually use any EF or EF-S lens with the adapter, but having only four native lenses isn’t a sign of great commitment to the cause.
