Canon really missed the mark on the EOS M that was introduced last summer. The camera had the potential to be the next big thing in the mirrorless market; however, the sluggish AF system killed any chances of that.
Recent rumors point to a higher spec’d EOS M-style camera that will hopefully deliver in the autofocus department. Check out the rumored spec list below.
- 24mp APS-C Sensor
- New generation AF system
- DIGIC V
- Removable Electronic Viewfinder (Very high resolution)
- Optional grip attachment
- Slightly larger than the current EOS M
- Introduced with 3 more lenses
- $999 USD
Sounds like a good start to some of the missing features of the original EOS M; however, that “new generation AF system” has to be spot-on if the camera is going to have any chance of moving off the shelves.
