Canon Continues EF-M System Wind down 2023

Even while the EOS R system and the RF mount have been fairly popular, this is not exactly the first time that Canon has ventured into the market for mirrorless cameras.

This distinction belongs to the EOS M system, but it appears (and this shouldn’t come as a surprise) that the firm is continuing to phase out the RF mount in favor of the RF mount for its cameras and lenses.

The announcement comes after Canon announced that it will no longer produce the EF-M 55-200 f/4.5-6.3 IS and the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that both of these lenses have near-direct RF mount equivalents in the form of the RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM.

There are now only five EF-M lenses left, none of which are longer than 45 millimeters:

  • EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
  • EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM
  • EF-M 22mm f/2 STM
  • EF-M 28mm f/3.5 IS STM
  • EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM

Since Canon has not introduced a new EOS M camera since late 2020, it would appear that the corporation is discontinuing production of the system while concurrently developing the RF-S mount as a potential successor. Having said that, the majority of the company’s APS-C mirrorless cameras and lenses have been positively reviewed, and it appears that they are committed to continuing to expand out this product line.
