    Well, maybe early next year. Right now it's still a rumor wot no official word from the big C. Hopefully they fixed the AF and have at least an accessory VF...

    Looks pretty amazing. Reminds me a lot of a Canon EOS M with a '2' on the end. Now all they have to do is price it at US$799.

    Today - Canon (finally) launched its first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera last year and while we loved the design and the image quality of the EOS M, the focusing speed, well, left a lot to be desired. The EOS M2 looks set to answer that particular issue. Announced today, and ready to launch in a few weeks, the new ILC promises auto-focus speeds over 2.3 times faster than the EOS M.


    http://petapixel.com/2013/06/19/the-magic-of-firmware-canon-eos-m-af-speed-boost-seen-in-videos/

    6 months ago - Earlier this month, Canon announced that there’s a firmware update for the Canon EOS M on the way that will boost the mirrorless camera’s sluggish autofocusing speeds by up to 2.3x.

    hmmm....

    Rob: I had that very thought when I saw the "2.3" but assumed I must be mistaken because no one could be that ridiculous.:shakehead:

    According to Canonwatch, it's 2.3 times faster than the M with the firmware upgrade. Maybe 2.3 is just a target AF spec for them . . .:smile:

    Well in any case it is a particularly feeble update from Canon that clearly doesnt want to take attention away from its DSLR line. Where is the EVF? The 70D dual focus system (ideal for mirrorless)? The tiltable LCD? I doubt they will even bother releasing this model in the US. Who is going to pay US$820 (Japanese price) for this model with kit lens while the EOS-M plus kit lens is US$299. It does have wifi though.

    From dpreview.com: "It appears that the EOS M2 won't be sold in either the European or US markets."

    This way people in the US and Europe can't complain about lack of EVF/Dual Pixel Focusing etc. :biggrin:

    Maybe there will be a firmware update boosting the new one from 2.3 to 4.6 after everyone figures it out.

    Seems like they are playing catchup in the Mirrorless market which is no fun for anyone.

    It is small though and with 18mp APS-C sensor.

    Once again Canon impresses with such unheard of mirrorless camera advances as phase-detect on chip and built-in wifi with smartphone remote capability. Why couldn't any other camera manufacturer come to market until now with such advanced features?!?

    I have the the current M ($299 with the 22mm) and it's a great compact camera with an APS-C sensor and very good IQ. I used it on a recent Disney trip because my EM5 is in the shop and I'm very happy with the results. They certainly have the basis of a nifty mirrorless system but are clearly so half-hearted about it that it's laughable.

    I got one too, it's good 22mm pancake camera at $300, but not like $800 witch Canon ask for.

    By the way, if you haven't checked out New Camera News (the link above), do so, especially next time you feel like you're taking photography just a little too seriously :smile:

    I think they'll ditch mirrorless, unless this thing sells through the roof. They patented another pellicle (allows light through mirror) mirror, that coupled with the dual pixel sensor may provide a best of both worlds solution in regards to the AF problem, and EF lens lineup problem. Provided it works past the hype I'm sure we'll get.
