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.
The latest EOS M murmurings suggest that Canon is getting “serious about the platform”. It’s also suggested that there are many new zoom and prime lenses for the EOS M that could be announced in the first part of 2016 along with a new model, the EOS M4. Finally, the EOS M4 is said to go on sale globally (the EOS M3 is officially not available in the USA).
Will it be a full-frame EOS M camera? The rumor doesn’t say anything about it. APS-C is more likely, I guess.
Sure thing that there will be new EF-M lenses. At least one already leaked. It’s an EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, and we could see it before X-Mas. Canon should really make more native lenses for the EOS M system.[via CR]
