|Canon EOS-M3 camera with EF lens|
Canon announced the EOS-M3 mirrorless camera on February 6. This is their third attempt to make this line of camera popular outside Asia. Although the EOS-M is selling well in Asia, it never caught on with the photography crowd in Europe and North America. Like the EOS-M2, the camera is not scheduled to be exported to North America but one can easily buy it through Amazon in the United Kingdom and Germany or Canon in Hong Kong.

One reason why the first version of the EOS-M did not catch on outside Asia was due to the limited selection of lenses but now Canon has built up the EOS-M line of glass. Canon Japan is in serious discussion right now trying to decide whether to export the EOS-M3 to North America. My guess is they will decide to go ahead with the move.
I am still on my Alaskan photo tour. Currently on Round 3 (last round) and will be returning home in a few days. You can follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter and see my works on MichaelDanielHo.com
