Promising greatly improved AF, the M2 is 8% smaller than its predecessor, the EOS M, according to a translation of a page on the official website of Canon Japan.

A future launch in the UK has not been ruled out.

A Canon UK spokesman told Amateur Photographer: ‘Currently, it is not planned to range the EOS M2 in Europe.’

However, he added: ‘Distribution and demand will be constantly reviewed and the situation may change in the future.’

The EOS M2 features a hybrid CMOS AF II sensor.
