Canon EOS M price has suffered a major drop at one of the most popular digital imaging retailers, paving way for the camera’s replacement.
Canon EOS M has not been such a successful mirrorless camera. In fact, it is widely-regarded as one of the worst EOS shooters ever. Still, the Japanese manufacturer is listening to its customers and it has recently released firmware update 2.0.2, which significantly improves the device’s autofocus speed.
Canon EOS M price drops amid replacement rumors
Moreover, the new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is said to go on sale in just a few days, thus bringing more optical options for photographers.
The rumor mill has been talking about a Canon EOS M replacement for a long time because more than one year has passed since the camera’s introduction. Well, another proof in favor of a successor has just surfaced at retailer B&H, which is holding a massive deal for the mirrorless camera.
The Canon EOS M price has been cut down by 50% to hit $299. The camera is available for that price with an EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens.
Moreover, the EF-M 18-55mm f/2.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit price has also been reduced to $349, down from $649, representing a 46% drop.
“Limited time offer” suggests that a successor may be miles away
Such huge price reductions are usually a sign that a replacement is nearing. However, only B&H is offering the mirrorless shooter at this price.
Moreover, it is said to be a “limited time offer”, so B&H might cancel it at any time. Limited time also means that the price will go back up soon, therefore a Canon EOS M successor might not be announced after all.
Either way, the Canon EOS M price with EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens is $299 and it can be purchased right now. Furthermore, the EF-M 18-55mm f/2.5-5.6 IS STM lens bundle is available for $349.
The new Canon EOS M has been rumored to be unveiled alongside a couple of lenses. The summer is not over yet, but the recent launches of a lens and firmware update are signs that the mirrorless camera may have a long life ahead.
