Canon Reveals EOS M2, Comes with Improved Autofocus System

Canon has announced a successor to its first mirrorless system camera, the EOS M, which was released late last year. The EOS M2 looks set to address the sluggish autofocus speeds we found on the M, with a new Hybrid CMOS AF II system which promises to be 2.3 times faster than its predecessor.

Canon has also included built-in Wi-Fi, but the 16MP APS-C sensor remains the same, as does the look of the camera itself. It looks like the update to the EOS M has been specifically focused on the autofocusing system. According to Engadget, the EOS M2 will be released in Japan this month for 84,800 yen (approx. PhP 36,192) with a kit lens, or 64,800 yen (approx. PhP 27,656) for the body alone.

There were no announcements on new lenses to go along with the EOS M2. At the moment, there remain only two EF-M lenses on the market, the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM.
