Rumor has it that Canon is killing off its EOS M lineup, and this has been going around for a while. After all, the company already discontinued the EOS M6 Mark II without announcing the successor. As the latest addition to the rumor, it appears that Canon has now killed the EOS M200 as well, and now only the EOS M50 Mark II remains.
As Canon Rumors reports, Canon has discontinued the EOS M200, but they cite no sources for this claim. Judging from the comments, this conclusion came after the camera has been withdrawn from several regions. Still, it appears to be in stock on both Amazon and B&H, as well as Canon’s USA website. It’s possible that there are still enough units available in warehouses, but Canon isn’t producing new ones.
To remind you, this whole thing started way back in 2020. Back then, the sources claimed that Canon would kill off the EOS M lineup so that the EOS R can take over the spotlight. Then, in 2021, Canon was rumored to “go into a new direction” with the EOS M series. Whatever that means.
But then, Canon was reported to discontinue the EOS M6 Mark II earlier this year. And indeed, it’s been marked as discontinued on B&H. But considering the difficulties all camera companies have faced during the pandemic, I won’t be surprised if Canon prioritizes the newer EOS R line and ditches the EOS M completely.
