Rumors for the Canon EOS M successor continue to build for an early 2014 launch. Previously, the camera(s) was rumored to feature the 70D‘s 20.2MP APS-C sensor and the excellent Dual Pixel AF functionality.
The Canon EOS M2 showed up as a supported camera inside the latest Canon Digital Photo Professional software update. The references are alongside separate references to the Canon EOS M, so it is unlikely that the EOS M2 references were simply a typo. [Read more…]
We had lots of hope for new cameras and lenses from Canon. Particularly, I have been looking forward to a replacement for the EF 100-400mm L lens. Recent rumors, however, suggest that Canon may not have anything left to pull out for 2013 in terms of EOS and EF lines.
There has been plenty of murmurs in recent months about a pair of new EOS M models due prior to PhotoPlus 2013. (The current EOS M is still in fire sale mode.) If the sources are to be believed, however, it could be rather quiet for Canon other than the recent introduction of the EOS 70D.
I had been wondering whether Canon would drop a new EOS M or two in the mix before PhotoPlus 2013 (I first saw the original EOS M last year at PhotoPlus 2012).

Canon USA has scheduled a media event for August 21. No word yet on what would be coming from Canon; however, there are plenty of solid guesses based on recent rumors. [Read more…]
Adorama is the first retailer that I am aware of to list the Canon EOS M as discontinued. Searching for “EOS M” on Adorama’s site automatically directs you to a page containing discontinued items, and only displays used items. Additionally, the previous product listing for the EOS M now says “We are sorry, this item is no longer available.”
Perhaps the recent $299 fire sale for Canon EOS M kits depleted Adorama’s supply?
If you have been thinking about picking up one of these very discounted prices, you may not have much time left to find one at all.
