Launched in October 2015, the Canon EOS M10 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (hybrid) featuring an 18Mp APS-C sensor. Replacing its predecessor, the EOS M2, the new EOS M10 sits behind the higher-resolution 24.2Mp EOS M3 in the current Canon hybrid lineup.
Today Canon has extended their range of lenses for their EOS M hybrid camera system with a new Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM. The first telephoto zoom lens for the EOS E hybrid system, the new lens features both image stabilisation and Canon STM autofocus technology. We delve into the specs to see what else it offers.
Introduced in July this year, the EOS 70D at first sight seems like a regular update to the maker’s mid-range EOS 60D model. It shares a number of features with the firm’s existing SLR range including a 19-point cross-type phase detection AF system, a 3-inch (1.040M dot) articulated touchscreen and built-in WiFi connectivity with remote viewing and image transfer. The camera can also shoot at up to 7fps and has 1080/30p video recording with stereo sound using an optional external microphone.
When launched, the EOS-M complete with the EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM zoom was $899, but the kit can now be had for as little as $345. With lens available separately for $269 that sounds too good to be true. Read on to see how well the combination performs.
