Defensive measure
In reply to Tom Hoots, Oct 23, 2013

I still submit that Canon will easily sell FAR MORE SL1 DSLR cameras than they'll ever sell any EOS-M cameras they will ever produce -- so WHY BOTHER??

I think Canon will continue to develop the EOS M line, as a defensive measure. Development may be slow, and future EOS Ms may not be available in all countries, but I think that development will continue.

I think Canon wants to participate in all camera sectors, and there is a long-term competitive risk in not offering any mirrorless cameras.

(If the original EOS M would have had fast AF speed, and would have been widely advertised, sales would have been better.)
