Canon - EOS M2 - mirrorless camera with substantially improved AF performance

 

Canon officially announced that they will release new mirrorless camera EOS M2 from their EOS M series in mid December.

Canon has developed the advanced autofocus technology Hybrid CMOS AF II (EOS Kiss X7 has it too) and used it for EOS M2 to make the AF performance substantially improved compared with its previous model EOS M.  

It has the image processor (DIGIC 5) and 18 mega pixel APS-C image sensor built-in, which the previous model EOS M also has. EOS M has a problem that its display goes black for 2 seconds after you press the shutter button, but Canon cleared the problem for new EOS M2.
