Sensor Review
Introduction | Measurements: Canon EOS M2: On a par with current EOS APS-C sensors | Canon EOS M2 Versus Canon EOS 100D Versus Canon EOS M: Similar performance | Canon EOS M2 Versus Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Versus Olympus PEN E-PM2:Competitive performance to MFT | Canon EOS M2 Versus Sony NEX-5T Versus Nikon 1 J3: Behind the best rival APS-C sensors | Conclusion

While it’s probably fair to say the original EOS M failed to capture the imagination of enthusiasts, the new mount has potential but it remains to be seen whether Canon will expand the range with a more advanced model aimed at more serious users. In the meantime, while it would have been nice to see the EOS M2 adopt the same sensor as the EOS 70D, it’s still an attractive option but right now it may be difficult to find on retailer’s shelves.
