The rumor mill is suggesting that Canon is actively working on a new EOS-M body that will be released in the near future alongside three new lenses.

New Canon gear is on its way

Even though the reports are unconfirmed, it is said that the source is very reliable therefore a new mirrorless camera from the Japan-based company is definitely coming in the upcoming months. There are no specific release or announcement dates, but Canon should reveal its new equipment by the end of March.

The new EOS-M body will be joined by three new lenses, including a super zoom lens. The specs are still unknown, though it is rumored that a 55-300mm lens will be the first to be launched for the company’s mirroless cameras. A so-called fast prime lens will also be announced along with a 55-300mm telephoto lens.

Release date will remain unknown

The source added that the announcement dates will be revealed closer to launch, as Canon wants to prepare the events thoroughly, in order to make sure that nothing will go wrong during the launch. Previously, it has been rumored that the next EOS-M body will be unveiled in late Q1 or in early Q2, while the lenses were said to be revealed by the end of January.

Only two unofficial confirmations have been given regarding the new Canon EOS-M body – one concerning the camera’s design, which will follow the same approach as the first generation, and the other regarding  the addition of an electronic viewfinder, as the technology can finally be added to the company’s line of mirrorless cameras.

Canon, picking up where it left off

Canon’s first mirrorless camera was announced in June, last year. The EOS M is an interchangeable-lens shooter which features a 3-inch 1,040K-dot touchscreen, 18-megapixel APS-C sensor, DIGIC 5 CPU, built-in Speedlite 90EX, full HD 1080p video recording at 30fps, and SD/SDHC/SDXC card support.
