After the recent fire sales of the Canon EOS M, things look like as if Canon is trying to empty stocks. Adorama has the EOS M listed as discontinued, same for other online shops. Hence, the latest EOS M rumour fits with what happened last week.
Canon may announce two new EOS M models later this year, a basic upgrade with an 18MP sensor (same of the EOS 100D), and a more sophisticated model with the new 20MP, dual pixel CMOS AF sensor of the Canon EOS 70D. The EOS M with the 20MP sensor is said to ship not before the EOS 70D (i.e. not before September 2013), the more basic variant should be released earlier. The 20MP model of the the new EOS M is said be aimed at more pro-oriented, full-frame EOS shooters and will have a viewfinder. Finally, Canon may be working on a focal length reducer for EF lenses that should be announced along with the the 20MP, dual pixel AF version of the the EOS M.
The new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens should be released in a few days.
