Canon EOS M50 at a glance:The Canon EOS M50 really gets a love of love in Japan. BCN rankings for the month of September 2018 show that the Canon EOS M50 (Kiss M in Japan) ranks first and third for ILC sales (different color options). Most likely the EOS M50 is Canon’s best selling MILC so far. Reviews all are positive.
Canon EOS R at a glance:DPReview posted their first impression review about the Canon EOS R. They appear to have some mixed feelings, especially when it comes to the M-Fn bar. With all due respect, to me it seems every time Canon releases a new technology people feels obliged to criticise beyond necessity, just because it’s Canon. It was the same when Canon released the first EOS M camera. The amount of bad press was astonishing. Never the less, the EOS M system was well accepted by the public and it doesn’t look as if Canon didn’t sell a boatload of EOS M cameras. The EOS M50 is the best selling mirrorless camera in Japan.
We have been told that the next Canon EOS R system camera to be announced will sport a high resolution sensor.
Rumor has it that Canon might announce two new Canon EOS M cameras in 2019.We can confirm this. As we wrote before, the Canon EOS M5 and Canon EOS M6 are scheduled to be replaced. We know from different sources that we will see a Canon EOS M5 Mark II and a Canon EOS M6 Mark II in 2019.
