Canon Rumor: A High End EOS M Model Coming 2020?

Canon Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

Here is a new Canon rumor. We leaked in February 2020 that Canon was set to announce two new EOS M camera in 2020.

This got confirmed a few weeks ago. Our source told us that these cameras would be the EOS M50 replacement and likely the EOS M5 Mark II.

A new rumor follows up to these rumors, suggesting that beside the EOS M50 Mark II (or M60) Canon will announce a “flagship” EOS M body. That is a EOS M camera of “greater durability and performance than you’d expect from an M5 follow-up“. So, no EOS M5 Mark II?

Be aware that the COVID-19 outbreak might delay Canon plans, and all this might happen in 2021.

Stay safe, stay tuned.

Canon Rumor: IBIS On Canon EOS M Cameras Mentioned Again

Canon Eos M6 Mark Ii Firmware Canon Rumor

Here is a new Canon rumor, suggesting again that Canon might feature IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) on the EOS M lineup.

This refers two the rumored EOS M cameras, the replacement for the EOS M50 (EOS M60 or EOS M50 II) and the EOS M5 Mark II. Both of these cameras were also already rumored before. However, the mew rumor suggests that at least one of the two upcoming EOS M cameras will have IBIS. We think this is possible.

We also know that IBIS will be featured on the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

Upcoming Canon announcements:

We expect Canon to announce a new Cinema camera on April 20, 2020, during a livestreamed conference, most likely the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III. The EOS R5 will not be announced on April 20, 2020, we expect the EOS R5 announcement before Summer 2020.

Canon EOS M Rumor: Two New Cameras And Some Primes To Be Released In 2020

Canon Eos M Rumor

A Canon EOS M rumor surfaced that’s very similar to a rumor we posted in February 2020.

It’s suggested that Canon might release two new EOS M bodies in 2020. One of these could likely be the Canon EOS M60 (the replacement for the EOS M50, might also be named EOS M50 Mark II). The other one could be the Canon EOS M5 Mark II. We reported back in February that Canon might announce the M5 II in October 2020 and the EOS M60 at the beginning of 2021.

The new Canon EOS M rumor mentions also the possibility that Canon might release two prime lenses for the EOS M system. One of these could be the EF-M 52mm f/2 STM we reported in February 2020. Our rumor mentioned a EF-M 18-45mm f/2-4 IS STM, which is not mentioned in the new rumor.

Upcoming Canon announcements:

We expect Canon to announce a new Cinema camera on April 20, 2020, during a livestreamed conference, most likely the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III. The EOS R5 will not be announced on April 20, 2020, we expect the EOS R5 announcement before Summer 2020.

Review: Sigma 16mm & 30mm & 56mm f/1.4 DC DN For Canon EOS M

Sigma 16mm

A review for those interested in the Canon EOS M system: Sigma 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm.

Photography Blog posted their review of three Sigma prime lenses, the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, and Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses for the EF-M mount.

From their conclusion:

While the 56mm is undoubtedly our pick of the bunch, all three would make great additions to the rather threadbare camera bag of a Canon EOS M shooter.

This is especially true for the wide-angle Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C and the short-telephoto Sigma 85mm F1.4 DC DN C, as there are no direct rivals in the Canon range […]

It’s a tougher sell for the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN C because of the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM, but even then the Sigma is pretty compelling simply because of its price […]

So, if you’re a frustrated Canon EOS M user who has outgrown their kit zoom and doesn’t want to adapt a Canon DSLR lens, the introduction of three well-built, high-quality, ultra-fast Sigma lenses in the native EF-M will be music to your ears.

Canon Rumor: 5 New EOS M Lenses Might Be Announced Within Next 2 Years

Canon Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

Here is a Canon rumor we got about the future of the EOS M mirrorless camera system.

A new source told us that Canon is planning to expand the EF-M lens lineup with five new lenses. The commercial success of the Canon EOS M50 seems to have motivated Canon to develop new EF-M lenses.

The five lenses that Canon might release over the next two years are:

  • EF-M 15mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 52mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 62mm f/4 Macro IS STM
  • EF-M 18-45mm f/2.8-4 IS STM
  • EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM

According to the source, the EF-M 52mm f/2 STM and EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM where initially planned to be released in late 2020. The Coronavirus outbreak and the disruptions in supply and manufacturing chains will make it likely that both these lenses will be released in 2021 along with the other lenses.

The next camera Canon will release is the game changing EOS R5. All we know about the R5 is listed here. More Canon rumor stuff is listed here.

Stay tuned.
