Canon looks set to expand its range of mirrorless cameras yet again, registering the name Canon EOS M50 with a regulatory body.

Let’s Go Digital found the name Canon EOS M50 registered with the Russian Inspection Agency EA Union, along with two kit lenses listed as the 15-45mm IS STM and 18-150mm IS STM.

We don’t know much else about the camera apart from its name, but the M50 moniker does give an indication that the M50 will sit somewhere between its flagship EOS M3 and entry-level EOS M100.

It’s also reasonable to expect that the Canon EOS M50 will employ a 24-megapixel APS-C image sensor like the M100 and M6.

We reckon Canon will announce the new camera sometime in early 2018.
