EOS M3 EF-M18-55STM FSLEarlier this year, Canon announced their latest mirrorless camera effort in the form of the Canon EOS M3. However at the time of announcement, it was revealed that the camera would not make its way stateside. In a way it wasn’t too surprising as Canon’s mirrorless offerings weren’t as popular.

Not to mention its predecessor, the EOS M2, was also not launch stateside, so it did not exactly come as a surprise. That being said, it seems the recent rumors of the camera arriving stateside were true as Canon has officially announced that the EOS M3 will be making its way to the US.

Specifics of its release date weren’t revealed except that we can look forward to purchasing it in “early” October. It will be available in either a black or white finish where it will be priced at $680 for the body-only, or if you want to get your hands on the kit lens, it will cost you $800 with the 18-55mm lens bundled.

For those who forgot about the camera and its specs, here’s a quick refresher. It will feature a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor. It will feature a 49-point hybrid autofocus system, which according to Canon will be 6.1x faster than the original. There will be front and rear controls, a touchscreen display, and built-in WiFi for wireless transfer and control of the camera.
