Canon has just announced an update to last years EOS M mirrorless camera, with the EOS M2. The new design sees an updated Hybrid CMOS II sensor which promises 2.3 times faster autofocus thanks to phase detection pixels that cover approximately 80% of the frame and built-in Wi-Fi alongside the new body design. Other slight changes include a redesign to the mode dial, continuous shooting speed increase to 4.6fps from 4.3fps, and a new front location for the stereo microphone. The EOS M2 comes in either black or white and will only be available for the Japanese market. Prices start at ¥64,800 for body-only, ¥84,800 for the 18-55mm lens kit, ¥104,800 for a two lens kit, and ¥134,800 for the full three lens kit. All lenses come with EF-M mounts, while an adaptor can be purchased to use existing EF/EF-S lenses.
