Bumping this. I think the final move to erase the market for budget P&S has been made: http://samsungcamera.com/samsung-introduces-the-galaxy-k-zoom/

G16 sensor is brand new Sony sensorThis I find hard to believe. Canon is making their own sensors. Why would they use a Sony sensor in this model only?
but unfortunately, Canon and Nikon don't seem to be interested despite the stats showing significant growth in mirrorless segment ...Well, as you can see in another thread in this forum, mirrorless isn't growing all that much, so I think CaNikon are just biding their time. At least Canon could just slap the M into an SL1 body with M-mount and EVF and go from there easily.
In re: the question of ergonomics.Well, in the bizarro universe of Arabic, maybe? The reason we think increasing goes left to right is because we write that way, left to right. Arabic is written right to left, making the practice of increasing right to left thoroughly logical.
I was having a discussion on metering techniques with a group of people and said that when I meter off of an 18% grey surface like the Lastolite EZBalance, I bump the meter needle a little to the right of center to increase exposure by 1/3 to 2/3 stops.
Whereupon a Nikon shooter in the group said that Nikon meters are backwards and the needle moves left at exposure increases.
My only response was, "In what bizaro universe do increasing values on a number line go right to left, instead of left to right."
I could get used to a lot of things but that one I'm not sure I would ever be able to adapt to.
I would expect Canon to add WiFi and a touchscreen to the next xxxD or xxxxD camera, and the video AF should show up as well, although doubtful about the DPAF from the 70D - that looks like something that the marketing department would consider worth a price premium. However, the M mount is specifically designed for mirrorless, rendering a mirror and optical viewfinder physically impossible and necessitating an EVF, so I doubt that Canon will go that route. Since they don't have an M model with a form factor similar to the Panasonic G-series, I wouldn't be surprised if Canon goes that route; however, that would not qualify as a DSLR as described by the rumor.
