Canon EOS M2 officially announced, 2.3X faster auto-focus
The Canon EOS M2 was officially launched recently and one of the main features it brings to the table is a much faster auto focus speed at 2.3x compared to the original Canon EOS M. According to Canon this is due to the Hybrid CMOS AF II system on the EOS M2 but the same APS-C sensor is still there. Canon have solved some issues found with the EOS M like the blacked-out screen after taking a photo as well. Other tech specs and features include Wifi connectivity and wireless sharing of images but the overall body design remains the same. While we're still not sure what lens it will arrive with (despite there being not very many to choose from), you can get it with a lens at 84800 yen (RM2659). If you already have compatible lens for this mirrorless camera then you can just get the body for 64800 yen (RM2032). For now the Canon EOS M2 will be available in Japan but it should reach Malaysia eventually, perhaps in early 2014.
