Are These The Canon EOS M7 Specifications (and is EOS M lineup at end of life)?

A set of alleged Canon EOS M7 specifications surfaced over the web. Are they real?

The Canon EOS M7 is rumored to be Canon’s next EOS M flagship. Personal View posted a set of possible Canon EOS M7 specifications, these:

  • 32mp APS-C sensor with DPAF II
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation, rumored to come to the EOS M lineup)
  • Slightly renewed DIGIC LSI
  • Cheap EVF, 2.36Mdots
  • Dual SD Cards, speed limits are same as 4 years old cameras
  • 12fps serial shooting, without AF active
  • 4K from 24p to 60p, using all APS-C sensor sampling
  • 1080p up to 120p (overheating at 120fps)
  • CLog mode for marketing purposes
  • $1599 price

All in all the specifications are plausible. Personal View doesn’t say anything about where they got these specifications. What they say, is that Canon “plans to destroy whole M lineup and all lenses as soon as 2021, but as camera [the EOS M7, editor’s note] had been developed for long they plan to sell it first“.

Rumors about the upcoming sudden dead of the EOS M lineup are nothing new and mostly suggest Canon will release an APS-C EOS R camera instead. Our take: while the specification list might be reliable, there is no way we buy the “destroy the whole M lineup” part. The EOS M50 is a blockbuster and sells extraordinarily well. There ar no reason to think Canon will not release an EOS M50 Mark II.

Time will tell.

Canon EOS M7 and EOS M50 Mark II To Be Announced In 2020?

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii

Here is a follow up on the rumor about the new Canon EOS M cameras that might be announced in 2020, the EOS M7 and EOS M50 Mark II.

The Canon EOS M7 might be Canon’s next flagship in the EOS M lineup.

Along with the EOS M7 Canon might also release a “higher-end” EF-M lens”. The fact that Canon’s next EOS M flagship has a “7” in its moniker doesn’t automatically mean it’s intended to replace the EOS 7D Mark II, which might be the last of its kind.

No surprise Canon is set to release a successor to their highly popular EOS M50. The EOS M50 Mark II might also be announced in Q4 2020. Unfortunately, no rumored specifications here but we are pretty sure IBIS will be featured also on the EOS M50 Mark II.

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.
