Canon EOS M2 with Built-in EVF Coming in the Second Half of 2014?

  • The EOS M camera line is getting smaller and lighter (note the size of the EOS-M2).
  • A new EOS M camera with a built-in EVF may be announced in the second half of 2014.
  • Hybrid still and video performance is the goal for Canon’s future mirrorless camera projects.
  • New lenses for the EOS M system will be coming.
  • Canon is exploring a mirrorless camera project for the semi professional market.
  • Canon is highly committed to the EOS Cinema.

We think Canon changed their plans and won’t bring the current EOS M2 to the US or Europe. A new EOS M mirrorless camera, the EOS M3 or with another name to be announced in the second half of 2014 with built-in EVF.
