I would LOVE a new Powershot Pro 1X!!! I still use my Powershot Pro1 every day and I want a new camera but I have yet to find one that I would pay $600 to $900 for that is better than the one I have.
A G1x with an f2.8, 24-200mm 'L' IS lens and GPS would be AWESOME for what I do. And if it were a bit better looking would be a bonus too, like the Fuji X-Pro 1 with a fully articulated screen and built in EVF.
I know there is no 'definition' of what an 'L' lens is, but I can tell you that the Pro 1 has good contrast and saturation and I am very happy with the IQ for such a small sensor. Recently eveyone is improving the sensors and the processors but I have yet to see a well rounded 'package'. I don't need to zoom to 600mm. The G1x was very close but the lens is not that great IMHO. The EOS-M is all about being seen with it and looking cool and not about taking pictures. I don't think I have ever shot a picture with my Pro 1 with the screen flat against the back of the camera. So then the EOS-M would be useless to me.
