|Canon EOS-M2 and EOS-M cameras side by side|
Canon announced the EOS-M2 in China and Japan on December 3, 2013. In my earlier post in January, I expected Canon to import the EOS-M2 into North America and Europe some time in the future. The challenge is inventory of the current EOS-M model has already built up and until Canon draws down the current stock, they will be reluctant to bring more cameras in. Now Canon Japan executive, Mr. Go Tokura, in a recent interview, reiterated the company's eventual plans to introduce the EOS-M2 outside of Asia and add additional lenses to the lineup. Currently, there are only 2 lenses available in the U.S. for the EOS-M camera. For those who want to buy the EOS-M2 now, check out my earlier post on where to get one.
The current EOS-M received a Firmware upgrade in June, 2013. It offered a big improvement in the AF speed. The video below demonstrates the difference. MichaelDanielHo.com
