Rumor: A New Canon EOS M Before X-Mas?

EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Review

Some new tidbits about the successor of the Canon EOS M. New murmurings surfacing on the Web suggest that Canon may release a new EOS M camera before Christmas, though there is still uncertainty about the announcement date. The camera to be released before Christmas would be one of the two new EOS M cameras Canon is supposed to have in work. Of the two cameras one will be a higher end EOS M, the other similar to the current EOS M camera. Moreover, there should be two new EF-M lenses, a telephoto and a macro.

There is still the weird fact that the amazing EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens appears  to be not sold in the US, which may suggest that Canon is not sure if the EOS M system is suited for the global market.

Canon EOS M kits are still available on fire sale at Amazon (click here) and B&H (click here).

More Canon Medium Format Tidbits

Canon RumorCanon Rumor

More Canon medium format tidbits, take them with a grain of salt. It appears Canon is working to have a medium format system and that they will not announce the camera before the system is developed enough to come with lenses and more. That’s to say Canon will develop lenses for a new mount system (a larger EF mount) – the new mount could be named EF-L and an adapter for the EF mount could also be on the way.

The Canon medium format camera could be announced at Photokina 2014.
