Beginning in early October 2015, the Canon EOS M3 began shipping in the United States in three different configurations: Body-only for US$679.99, equipped with the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens for US$799.99, or a dual lens kit comprising the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens and the EF-M 55-200mm IS STM lens for US$1,049. The EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens and the EF-M 55-200mm IS STM lens for US$1,049. The body of the 18-55mm kit is available in either black or white, whilst the bodies of the other variants are only available in black.
The EOS M3 is Canon’s third mirrorless camera, following the EOS M2 and EOS M1. It was initially introduced in the autumn of 2015, and it serves as the official successor for the previously released EOS M2, which had a limited distribution in Asia, as well as the original EOS M. It has been in production since the fall of 2015. With this mid-range mirrorless camera, they are targeting enthusiasts and novices who are seeking an improvement in image quality. On paper, Canon’s EOS M Mark II offers significant improvements over the original EOS M, as well as a slew of additional capabilities. Furthermore, it doesn’t appear to be a camera that will be released as a simple upgrade either.
