More specifications for the Canon EOS M7, rumored to be announced this year are making the rounds on the web. I cannot confirm these specifications, but I figured I’d post them anyway.
The rumored price tag here doesn’t fit as a follow-up to the EOS M50.
Canon EOS M7 Specifications:
- 32mp APS-C sensor with DPAF II
- Slightly renewed DIGIC LSI
- Cheap EVF, 2.36Mdots
- Dual SD Cards, speed limits are the same as 4 years old cameras
- 12fps serial shooting, without AF active
- 4K from 24p to 60p, using all APS-C sensor sampling
- 1080p up to 120p (overheating at 120fps)
- CLog mode for marketing purposes
- $1599 price
The second part of this rumor suggests that Canon will be killing the EOS M line as early as some time in 2021. That means no more cameras or lenses for the system and it will be left to the history books in favor of the EOS R system.
I have heard this a couple of times over the last few months, but all of that information has come to be anonymously and I haven’t put much stock in it, and I’m still not sure what to think about it.
I’m hoping someone will reach out with some clarification on this rumor.
Does this mean an APS-C EOS R camera is coming? I haven’t heard anything more about one, but it has been talked about a lot over the last year or so. I also know that an RF 18-45mm non-L lens is coming in 2021. This would be a very odd full-frame lens for the EOS R system, historically we’ve always had 18-55mm/18-45mm kit lenses for APS-C cameras.
All of this is an unconfirmed [CR1] rumor, so please treat it as such.
