Canon EOS M2 Officially Announced in Japan

Canon EOS M2

The EOS M2, successor to the EOS M, Canon’s not very successful first attempt at its own mirrorless camera system, has been officially announced in Japan. However, the big revolution that many have hoped for isn’t coming. Yet. Rather, it seems the M2 is a slightly updated M, with quicker AF (up to 2.3 times faster) and added Wi-Fi connectivity in virtually the same body as the previous model. The camera will be available in Japan this month, with prices starting at JPY 64,800 (~ US-$ 630) for the body only. Full specs and more images after the break.
