A new prime lens for EOS M system to be announced before CP+? [CW2]

The EF-M 22mm f/2 STM, the only fast prime for the EOS M system, so far

A prime lens for the Canon EOS M system was rumored since a while. I have been told (thanks) that Canon may announce an EF-M 32mm f/1.8 lens along with the EOS M6. This comes from a new source so I rate it CW2. However, it’s plausible and a focal length around 35mm is what we have been told in the past. For sure it would be a welcome addition for EOS M users.

Currently there are two prime lenses for the EOS M system, the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM and the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM.

Canon will announce a lot of stuff in the next week, before CP+. There is the EOS M6, new Rebels with one named EOS 77D, and likely more.

Stay tuned!

The Canon EOS M6 is the company’s next mirrorless camera [CW5]

The EOS M5 (image above) will soon have a new sibling, the EOS M6.

Well this comes as a surprise, at least the moniker does. As information leaked at Nokishita Camera suggests, Canon’s next mirrorless will be the Canon EOS M6.

No image so far, but a list of specifications (also for the new electronic viewfinder, the EVF-DC 2). Since the spec lists come together I wonder if the EOS M6 will have a built-in EVF. Might it be a consumer-oriented model? The fact that there are two color options makes me think it will have a more reduced feature set than the Canon EOS M5.

  • EOS M6
    • Color: Black/Silver
    • Body only, kit with EF-M 15-45mm lens, kit with EF-M 18-150mm lens, double zoom lens kit
    • SKU: 1724C001 (black), 1725C001 (silver) – [The three-digit number behind C changes according to the selling country and kit]
  • EVF-DC 2
    • Color: Black/Silver
    • SKU: 1727C001 (black), 1882C001 (silver)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned because I am sure there will soon be more information.
