Canon Getting Serious with EOS M System (and CPS roadshow in May 2015)?

FacebookTwitterStumbleUponShare

Canon EOS M

A few days ago an EOS M rumor surfaced, today we have some more bits about.

I have been told (thanks) that Canon Professional Services and Canon sale forces in Germany have informed various big German dealers that Canon HQs are recalling all EOS M models, but are letting all EF-M lenses in stores and branches. Dealers were told that Canon will address the EOS M in December. For the time being it looks as if it will be a development announcement rather than a last minute X-Mas surprise. If the rumor is reliable then Canon might getting serious about the EOS M system.

I’ve also been told that a CPS roadshow is scheduled for May 2015 to showcase new and important products Canon is going to announce in 2015, which possibly could be the rumoured professional cameras Canon may announce.

Stay tuned…

New Canon EOS M Camera Coming?

EOS M

Long time we didn’t have an EOS M replacement rumor. A new one surfaced just in time to heat up the holiday season discussion.

Canon Rumors writes:

We’ve been told that Canon has given word to various divisions around the globe that they will address the EOS M in December of this year. Apparently demo units have been recalled by Canon at customer centres in a couple of countries that aren’t in Asia, which suggests a truly global replacement of the EOS M.

The rumor is rated as coming from a new and unknown source, so take your big pinch of salt. Moreover, December sounds a bit strange as announcement date for a new, globally sold EOS M camera (the EOS M2 is on sale only in Japan and few other Asian countries). All in all, a rumor with many unknown parameters.

To this end, I would like to cite from a recent interview with Canon executives:

Was the Canon EOS M an experiment?

Well it was certainly an experiment! Japan and Asia as a whole accept mirrorless cameras more than any other markets. In the US, in terms of total number of cameras sold, mirrorless cameras account for less than 20%.

Will the EOS M2 come to the US and EU market? Mr. Tokura says:

It’s a possibility but we haven’t made a final decision yet. We’re looking at the market [more about this issue here]

When asked if it is easier to make lenses for mirror less systems, Mr. Naoya Kaneda answers:

In designing lenses for mirrorless cameras we have a degree of freedom, in that they don’t need to have a long flange back distance. Especially when making high-quality wide zoom lenses, it’s easier to design them for a mirrorless platform. A good example of this is the 11-22mm zoom for the EOS M. Its optical performance is very high.

It seems pretty clear that Canon has no intention to give up the EOS M system. The point is if they will ever make a pro-grade EOS M camera. So far no reliable rumor points in this direction.

The excellent EOS M is a bargain these days. Don’t believe all the bad press it got and have a look at the serious reviews. For the EOS M2 you may have a look at eBay.

We have a big giveaway going on, don’t miss it. And don’t forget to show us what you can do with a Canon camera.
