Canon dipped its toe into the mirrorless world with the EOS-M back in July 2012, over 11 years ago. Today quietly, Canon Japan has all the EOS-M cameras as being discontinued, a sign from the world’s largest camera manufacturer that the system is no longer available. We all knew that Canon would stop developing the EOS-M system once the RF-S was made available and that sooner or later the cameras would be all discontinued. That day is here now.
If we look at Canon Japan’s website, we see that all the EOS-M camera bodies are now discontinued, including the popular EOS M50 and M50 Mark II. Canon USA no longer has any EOS-M cameras listed as well, and all the EOS-M cameras are out of stock in Canon USA.
According to asobinet, EF-M lenses in Japan are also in short supply, and on Canon USA’s website, all the EOS-M lenses are now listed as being out of stock. Stock levels at other retailers may vary.
In the USA it seems that some retailers still have stock at the time of this article creation of some M200 and M50 Mark II camera kits, as well as the EF-M lenses.
So if you are still using the EOS-M system, I suggest looking around and buying that lens or two that you had your eye on. Because we all know, it’s not as if your existing camera is going to stop working once Canon discontinues it. Good deals can be had for both new and used cameras. Just be aware that you are buying into a system with no future. Used lens prices on popular reselling sites should also be fairly cheap as people will be selling off their kits and moving to, well, somewhere. You can also still get Sigma and Viltrox lenses for the EOS-M system, at least for the time being.
