Canon memutuskan untuk mengumumkan EOS-M2 hanya di Jepang saja (setidaknya untuk saat ini). Fitur baru yang cukup besar perubahannya adalah kecepatan AF hingga 2,3 kali lebih cepat dari EOS M, berkat sistem AF CMOS II Hybrid yang juga ditanamkan di kamera EOS 100D / SL1.  Seri ini juga memecahkan masalah layar black-out yang sering muncul di model sebelumnya. Selain itu ia juga memiliki built-in Wi-Fi dan desain body yang berubah sedikit. Akan dijual baik body-only atau dengan kit satu, dua atau tiga lensa EF-M. Tersedia dalam warna hitam atau putih. Kamera ini akan dihargai sekitar USD $620 dan dikirim bulan ini juga di seluruh Jepang.

Update : 

Tampaknya pengumuman Canon EOS M2 ini benar-benar hanya untuk Asia yang diumumkan hanya di Jepang dan Cina. Meski ada kemungkinan Canon akan memperkenalkan EOS M2 ini ke AS dan Eropa di acara CES awal Januari 2014. Kemungkinan kedua adalah bahwa Canon memutuskan untuk tidak lagi memproduksi kamera mirrorless untuk pasar AS. Lensa EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM untuk EOS-M juga tidak diumumkan di AS beberapa bulan lalu.

Produk mirrorless terjual jauh lebih baik di Asia. Berbeda jauh dengan negara-negara Barat. Nikon baru-baru ini secara signifikan memangkas proyeksi mereka karena penjualan mirrorless sangat rendah di AS dan Eropa. Jadi sementara belum ada review/preview/hands-on untuk kamera ini karena sebagian besar kita link ke situs-situs barat.
