May be Canon can just use the G series and convert it to a mirrorless camera with adapter to use EF/EF-S lens.
Have a nice day.
I think this would be a good plan for Canon:
- keep the G series 'feel' and rename/work it a R/'Ranger' series.
- interchangeable using EF-S (EF would be great!)
- Ability to have full manual control, audio tags (as per G series) and some of the features from the s100 (e.g. GPS, DIGIC 5) - I think GPS fits in nicely with a rangefinder's traditional 'traveller' feel
- keep the hotshoe!
- ... while we are at it add an optional 'motordrive' grip. ;-)
