About a week ago, leaked photos and specs revealed Canon’s next-gen mirrorless camera, the EOS M5. What got us particularly excited about the EOS M5 is that it seems to be quite a departure in terms of design compared to Canon’s previous EOS M cameras, and it looks like it is now official.
Canon has officially taken the wraps off their latest mirrorless camera efforts in the form of the Canon EOS M5. The company seems to have skipped one model as the EOS M5’s predecessor was the EOS M3 launch in early 2015 (the EOS M10 is more of an entry-level camera), but given its design we guess we can understand how Canon might think this is more than just a mere upgrade.
In terms of specs, the EOS M5 will pack a 23.2MP CMOS APS-C sensor. It has Dual Pixel CMOS AF, high speed shooting of 7fps, a DIGIC 7 Image Processor, digital image stabilization with 5-axis image stabilization when shooting movies. There is also a high-res EVF, a touchscreen display, built-in WiFi and NFC, video recording of Full HD at 60fps, and an ISO range of 100-25,600.
It will also play nicely with Canon’s EF-M lenses, so if you’ve amassed a few of these lenses you should have no problems using them. In terms of pricing, the EOS M5 is priced at $979.99 for the body-only, or $1,099 for the camera with the EF-M 15-45mm/F3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom kit lens, or $1,479 for the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens. It is also expected to see a release in November, or December if you opt for the EF-M 18-150mm lens.
