Those first images look pretty promising. Please keep posting, so that we can get a better impression of what this new lens can do.

If you were go on vacation would you just take the G1X.M2 or do you bring along a 5D3 or 1D-X too?
Regarding lens size and weight there is no substitute to testing this yourself.
I wouldn't consider any of the 70-200mm zooms too heavy for extended use. If for example someone can safely carry a baby, why wouldn't the same person be able to carry a 70-200mm f2.8 Mark II zoom on a gripped 5D?
I have a pal who is an equestrian photographer and he'd shoot at events, selling the pictures to the competitors, so it is a case of shooting every rider for the duration of the event. ( something that would drive me nuts). He used a 1D + 70-200 2.8 and did eventually suffer from strained hand. The last time but one time I saw him he had it strapped up; the last time he was using a 7D + 70-200/4.
So size and weight can matter, it's a question of the individuals priorities and circumstances.
I'd like 2-3 more C# settings.
How would you remember what they are ? I have trouble remembering 3 !
I really hope that Canon doesn't release another rebel series dslr.. I still see t3i being sold and don't even see the t4i much and even less of the t5i. the price differences are so minimal now too. Just stop. lol Who wouldn't be happy to see a new rebel like every 1.5-2 yrs? Maybe it's just me? anyways, rumors rumors~~
