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.

Which One Is The Best Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera? (Canon EOS M50 vs Fuji X-T200 vs Sony a6100)

Best Entry-level Mirrorless Camera

The best entry-level mirrorless camera. Hot question, isn’t it?

DPReview‘s Chris and Jordan compare the Fujifilm X-T200, the Sony a6100 and the Canon EOS M50. And the question is: which one is right for you? While we are (obviously) rooting for the EOS M50, the Fujifilm X-T200 might…well…be interesting too.

Canon EOS M50 Conclusion: The most affordable EOS mirrorless with a built-in viewfinder has plenty to offer, at Imaging Resource

Certainly, we wouldn’t hold the limitations of its 4K mode against the little EOS M50 too much, because there’s still a lot of camera here for the money. For less than US$800 street, you can get both the M50 body and a kit lens, and have yourself a very capable still shooter with good image quality out of the box, and the potential for even more from raw or C-RAW.
And you’ll also find great performance and handling in the M50’s relatively lightweight, compact body that pairs beautifully with Canon’s EF-M lenses, and can also accept the company’s many, many years of EF lenses via the optionally-available (and rather pricey) EOS M mount adapter, or more affordable third-party equivalents.
