Canon putting more effort into mirrorless, new camera (EOS-M4?) coming “in the very near future”

Imaging Resources published an interview with Mr. Masaya Maeda (Senior Managing Director and Chief Executive of Canon's Image Communication Products Operations) who said that Canon will put much more effort into their mirrorless EOS M line and even promised a new "mirrorless camera that you would really like" in the very near future:

"MM: As I mentioned before when I talked about lenses, for all of the products, we are working from the top of the pyramid. Going forward, and this would be a repeat of what I said before, but we will put more effort into mirrorless, and also, naturally, we will continue to expand the EF-M lens group. In the very near future, I think that Canon will come out with a mirrorless camera that you would really like.

MM: I promise.

DE: Oh, hmm. In the near future. That’s good. That will get a lot of attention, yes. I know better than to ask you when, so I won’t. That’s actually very interesting!

[This is very interesting indeed. While the EOS-M3 only recently came to the US, it sounds like a significantly more capable M4 may not be too far in the future. Mr. Maeda's particularly emphasis that I would like it suggests it will be a model aimed particularly at the enthusiast market. We wonder what features it might include; improved AF seems like a must-have.]"
