Meet the new Canon EOS M!
Contrary to previous information, it looks like that the EOS M may have an APS-C sensor instead of the smaller 1.85x crop sensor from the Canon G1 X. Mounted on the camera is the EF-M 22mm F/2 STM pancake lens (36mm full frame equivalent). The new mount type is said to be designated as EF-M. One thing that worries me though, is that there is no built-in EVF. I have the Panasonic GH2 and am planning to get the Olympus OM-D very soon. One thing I love about them and also the Sony NEX-7 is that all of them have stellar built-in EVFs. As someone who uses wireless triggers to fire strobes, this is a must and I can’t go back to having to choose either an EVF or a wireless trigger.
Readers, are you looking forward to buying the Canon EOS M?
UPDATE: MORE PHOTOS AND INFORMATION!
Thanks to the guys at CanonRumors.com and Digicame-info.com, we now have some more photos and information about the Canon EOS M. So from the looks of it, we are looking at a point&shoot style camera, with very few direct access controls, no EVF, and probably a touchscreen-driven system.
Sources who spoke to 43Rumors.com confirmed that it will be an APS-C camera and that Canon did not want to give Sony the sensor size advantage.
Here is the other piece of info that they were able to get: There will be a more advanced Canon mirrorless within a few months. Hopefully that will have EVF and more direct access controls.
