We all know that the original EOS-M was a colossal flop in most markets (Asia being about the only exception to what I have heard). So much so that the EOS-M2 was only released in Asia (in reality, it was more like an EOS-M1.5, basically just with added Wifi). So we have all been wondering, when would Canon step up and try to hit the US/Euro mirrorless markets again?

A new image has surfaced online over the last 24 hours, which is claiming to be a shot of the fabled EOS-M3. It features a small viewfinder and flip out LCD screen, but otherwise looks very much like the original M and M2. Most believe it is a fairly well done fake, but what if it’s not?

Would you give the M line another shot if the next M body came with these features, assuming the guts on the inside were up to par with current technology? Personally, I think the image is fake, but I would love to see an EOS M3 with those features. Well, I could care less about the flip out screen, but I would love a viewfinder and an addition of the 70D’s Dual Pixel AF technology.

Photokina is only a short while away, it will be interesting to see if Canon actually does release this M3 and managed to keep it under wraps this long…

What are your thoughts on the above image? Is it a good fake or could Canon actually have a new M on the horizon? Leave a comment below!
