Canon EOS M2 to be sold only in Asia?

It seems that the Canon EOS M2 announcement last night was only for Asia (the camera was officially announced only in Japan and China). It could be that Canon will introduce the M2 to the Western world during the 2014 CES show in early January. The second possibility is that Canon has decided to no longer market mirrorless products in the US. The EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens for the EOS-M was also not announced in the US few months ago. Mirrorless products sell much better in Asia - Nikon recently had to significantly cut their forecasts due to poor mirrorless sales in the US and Europe. In the future, camera manufacturers may have different product mix based on actual demand or specific area instead introducing new products globally. For now the Canon EOS M2 can only be ordered from amazon.jp and they will not ship outside Japan:

Few EOS M2 sample images can be found here. Here is video demo of the improved AF of the new EOS M2:
