The EOS M6 Mark II is great but how many lenses are there? We've counted 31...

The just announced Canon EOS M6 Mark II is the company's best EOS M mirrorless camera yet. With its 14fps burst rate, uncropped 4K video and optional EVF, it's impressed us both with its specifications and with its handling in our hands on review. In fact, we think the EOS M6 Mark II may be better than the Canon EOS R, and cheaper too.

But where are the lenses? Canon's been busy pushing the EOS M series as 'storytelling' cameras, and many of its EOS M lenses are aimed at the entry level end of the market, so there's this perception that it's not a 'serious' camera. Indeed, Canon only lists eight native EOS M lenses.
