After a lukewarm US reception for its first mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, thein 2013, Canon chose not to release its successor M2 here, and to release this year's M3 initially in selected markets.
Now Canon has chosen to follow up with a release in the US.
When it ships in October, pricing will be $680 for the body; $800 for the kit with the 18-55mm STM lens; and $1,050 for a kit with both the 18-55m and 55-200mm STM lenses. Canon also brought over the EF-M lenses it never shipped in the US, the 55-200mm STM ($350) and 11-22mm STM ($400).
Our Australian team reviewed the camera, and with its subsequent availability here we've had the chance to run our lab tests andwith a lot more comparative context.
