With No IS and the price tag on this lens, I am going to give a serious consideration to Tamron 24-70. Hope there will be some test results out soon...

Conspirancy theories aside, this sounds like the thinking of a marketing department to me.
First time I ever heard "thinking" and "marketing department" in the same sentence. In my experience, marketers take their orders directly from Satan -- no thinking necessary.
Replace the 75-300 with a 70-300L - will be better for journalism
i dont care if it has better specs than a nikon or not. what I care about a high quality working package and this list of rumoured specs basically ensure that I am eagerly awaiting to see how the AF is if it is as good as last gen 1D AF i'll be over the moon+1
I think the G1X dxo measurements are a bit worrying, looks like Canon still can't make as good pixels as Sony. Seems to perform about the same as the 7D from 2009... but of course you can compete in other ways than sensor quality I guess...Tell me, why G1X should be better, than semi-professional DSLR 7D?
Am sure Canon can do an excellent job with sensors, and we will see it in 1DX model, for example.
Because it is produced two years later. It is the same pixel size, 4um pixels should perform better today than two years ago.
It is not necessary to differentiate the G1X and 7D on the sensor, the 7D is a DSLR with the autofocus, speed, build, interchangable lenses etc.
I would be surprised if they make the G1X sensor deliberately less good than they can, then they could just as well make a smaller sensor instead and made the camera more compact.
But sure, 1DX will be a safer benchmark to look at. Of what I have seen so far I'm a bit afraid that the sensor performance hype coming from Canon on the newer and coming models are more about JPEG noise reduction in digic5 than about raw sensor performance. I'd love to be proven wrong. But if I'm right I can keep my 5Dmk2 longer, so that's kind of ok too :-).
If you are talking about DSLRs Nikon uses it to differentiate between sports/low light camera and they high MP studio camera.Thank you! That is exactly what I was wondering!
The Nikon D3s is 12MP and 9fps while the the D3x is much slower with 24mp.
At some point I'm sure we'll have a D4x and D4s.
Canon doesn't really seem to have a set routine for using S and X. They do have the 1Ds which differentiates it from the 1D as being full frame. But I don't know why they chose an "s".
