The Big Mistake We Hope Canon APS-C Cameras Don’t Have

We’ve said it many times: lenses are more important than your camera. And there’s no exception to that rule with the new Canon APS-C cameras. The Canon RF-M lens lineup should strive to not only appeal to a customer base seeking cheap thrills. But the lineup should include higher-end lenses. Canon, years ago, had a 17-55mm f2.8 lens. Considering what they’ve done for the L-series of RF mount lenses, they should give the same treatment to RF-M lenses.

Is the Canon EF-M Series of Cameras Doomed?

With the new announcement of the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10, we’re curious about whether or not the Canon EF-M series is doomed. I mean, why bother to continue it? The autofocus performance is subpar compared to that of the RF series of cameras. Nothing in this lineup is weather resistant either. And, for the most part, lenses for it haven’t been released or developed in a while. So is it really gone?

Canon EOS R7: Do We Need a New RF Mount APS-C Camera?

canon aps-c cameras

If noise about a new Canon EOS R7 turns out to be real, the days of Canon EF-M cameras might be limited.

Over the last two years, we have seen Canon grow their presence in the Mirrorless space. Full-Frame RF Mount cameras have come on in leaps and bounds, and many have re-joined the Canon fold. One area that Canon really needs to work on, though, is streamlining its offerings. Currently, Canon’s Mirrorless cameras are spread across two different mounts; EF-M and RF. This is incredibly confusing to consumers, especially as EF-M cameras offer no clear upgrade path to the newer RF mount. So, it comes as no surprise that there’s some noise about a potential Canon EOS R7. To me, this model number suggests it could be a Mirrorless replacement for the aging Canon 7D series, and honestly, this is what it needs to be. Let’s talk about this after the break.
