Canon's next EOS R model with an APS-C imaging sensor might not be far away,…
Bad news for those who like the EOS M system, myself included. A new rumor suggests Canon might not continue the EOS M lineup after 2021.
The EOS M mirrorless system has already been declared dead many times. Now it seems it might eventually happen. According to the rumor, Canon will end the EOS M lineup in favour of two upcoming RF mount cameras with a APS-C sensor (so far only one EOS R with APS-C was rumored).
It’s also rumored that Canon might not release dedicated RF-S lenses (i.e. lenses for the RF mount but only for APS-C sensors). Instead, future lens design will “fill the void of no dedicated APS-C lenses”. Whatever that means. Guess it means that they are designed to work well for both APS-C and FF EOS R cameras. Sort of compromise? The upcoming RF 18-45mm IS STM might be the walk-around lens for an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor.
There will be EOS M cameras on market after 2021, and the EOS M50 Mark II won’t be the last EOS M camera. Stay tuned.
