Just last week Canon announced the EOS M2, the successor to Canon’s first mirrorless camera system, the EOS M. While the camera brought about new features and improvements over its successor, it wasn’t as big a change as some might have liked or expected, but as it turns out there is a chance that the EOS M2 might simply be a stopgap between the EOS M and a newer EOS M camera that could come out in the second half of 2014. This is according to an interview that DCWatch has had with Masaya Maeda from Canon Japan, who revealed that an EOS M3 camera would arrive in the second half of 2014.
While it is unclear as to what sort of specs we might be looking at with the EOS M3, it supposedly will come with an EVF, a feature which is currently missing from the EOS M and the EOS M2. Maeda has also stated that video performance will be the key feature of future EOS M cameras, although he did not mention if this would be starting with the EOS M3 or future models. Canon is also reportedly looking into releasing a prosumer/professional mirrorless camera, which we guess would be to compete with the likes of Sony who have released high-end cameras in the past, such as the NEX-7 and the recently launched A7 and A7R cameras.
