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



With a DxOMark a score of 65 points the Canon EOS M2 has a global ranking of 112 in our database overall.

That’s just behind the smaller 1-inch format 20-Mpix Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 at 66 points. The score is a bit low compared to rivals for a current APS-C model. Color depth and low-light capabilities are good but an 11.4 Ev dynamic range is on the low side for this sensor format. However, it’s on a par with related sensors in other APS-C size EOS models from the company.

The overall score matches the firm’s EOS Rebel T3i (600D) and is just behind models such as the EOS 7D and EOS 70D at 66 and 68 points respectively.
