Product shots of Canon’s new interchangeable lens camera have leaked online, via Japanese website Digicame-info, which appears to have got it from a camera retailer.
All the signs are that this is the long-awaited first mirrorless ILC from the brand.
Its model name is Canon EOS M, and in the photo the body is shown with an EF-M 22mm f/2 STM pancake lens. It’s reasonable to assume that the M in EOS M and EF-M refer to mirrorless, especially given how thin the camera looks.
The MirrorlessRumors site speculates that with this new mount, Canon may
be “moving away from the in-between sensor size it used in the G1 X and
possibly towards full APS-C.”
The site also says that an
official Canon announcement is expected on July 23, so there isn’t long
to wait until we find out more.
