Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera To Be Announced in Late 2016

Canon is on the verge to launch a new EOS M mirrorless camera by the end of 2016. It will be the EOS M3 successor and expected to have a name as EOS M5.

As we are approaching to the worlds biggest digital imaging show Photokina, there won’t be an announcement related to the EOS M lineup. This means that the show will unveil a new EOS 5 body.

Maybe the mirrorless users from Canon will not have a product update at Photokina. Bu the good news is that we will see a new EOS M camera and a lens announcement in late 2016.

Looks like Canon also decided to make a numeric change. They will jump to the EOS M5 name and skip the “M4” designation.


This certainly means a major upgrade over the current EOS M3. On the other it is easy to expect that the MILC will come packed with an APS-c sized image sensor. The rumor mill also notes that there won’t be big ergonomic changes in the body.

The new Canon EOS M5 camera announcement might also bring a new lens. It will be called EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS standard zoom optic.

There are no detailed specifications at the moment. It is still unclear if the EOS M5 will have features like on DPAF or 4K video recording capability.
