Canon EOS M Listed as Discontinued

Discontinued EOS M

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?

B&H and Amazon are currently back-ordered on this kit; however, you can still order at $299.

Additionally, the EOS M kit with 18-55mm lens for $349 is in stock at both B&H and Amazon.

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.

While my initial Canon EOS M review was highly critical of the AF speed on this camera, Canon’s recent firmware update for the EOS M appears to have resolved my primary complaint. As a result, these look like some solid deals on this compact mirrorless shooter.

Specifically, firmware version 2.0.2 adresses the following issues: [Read more...]
