by the way.. i think the image on the LCD shows a little bit to much noise.
i thought canon would have improved low iso noise.
What does that mean in terms of the lens? The quoted spec is 'f/2.5-16' and if that's as correctly quoted as the 1.5" sensor, then based on how apertures are printed on the lens, it means f/2.5 max aperture at the wide end and f/16 max aperture at the long end. I really doubt they'd release a camera that only opens to f/16 at the long end, so I believe that that spec is indicating the total aperture range (i.e. f/2.5 max aperture at the wide end, some unknown max aperture at the long end, and a minimum aperture of f/16 throughout the range - that improves on the G12 which is f/2.8 max and f/8 min).
So, if the Wells Fargo analyst isn't relating the information on the aperture in the standard/conventional way, what makes it certain that the sensor is being specified properly?
Bigger than m4/3? Ok, conservatively slot it between that and the Canon APS-C and give it a 1.9x crop factor. That means a 28-112mm FF-equivalent lens is really a 15-59mm lens, with f/2.5 at the wide end. That means it's got to be substantially bigger than the m4/3 kit lenses, the smallest of which (Oly 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6) is 2.5" long when retracted. The PowerShot G12 is 1.9" deep - do you think Canon will release a G1X that's well over 3" deep, probably closer to 4" deep? If it has a sensor bigger than m4/3, it would have to be...
... 85-300 f4 (THEY USED TO MAKE ONE!!! )? ...
TS-E 24mm II for $900.
EF 200mm f/2.8L II USMHandy list, but the patent example is for a 200mm f/2, not an f/2.8.

I havenâ€™t heard of a medium format prototype within Canon, however I have heard in the past that Canon has considered purchasing a medium format company. Iâ€™ve personally never understood why they would, they are more than capable of entering the market themselves.
I hear from lots of people that arenâ€™t happy with the 8-15 f/4L fisheye. They wish Canon would update the full frame fisheye 2.8 prime.
