Canon has made new, albeit strange announcement about their new EOS M2. It not only will have fewer features than we’d like, but it will also be only released –at least for now- in China and Japan.
Very similar to the original design-wise (though with a nice extras), the Wi-Fi connectivity is one of the biggest changes, as it keeps the 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor.
Despite many rumors talked about features similar to the EOS 70D –which features a hybrid focus system known as Dual Pixel AF-, the EOS M2 has nothing of the sort. The automatic focus has been improved, however –since the previous model suffered in this regard- thanks to the new Hybrid CMOS AF II.
It will likely be released during the second or third week of this month. Nothing has been officially stated about its release date in the rest of the world.
Presented last year, the EOS M can now be found in Europe.
