Hoping for seriously updated EVF on this. Ergonomics-wise, it looks like they removed the thumb wheel on the back. Not good.

I've never figured this out. It happens with almost any product. I'll see an article about a new iphone and most of the posts are from people criticizing it. If I see an article, post, forum, etc. related to a product I don't want, use, or have an interest in, I don't read it, let alone leave negative comments. What's up with these people?I usually battle this with a special strategy of mine, which I pompously now name "valid complaint pattern".
so if they would fit a sony 1" sensor in a canon camera and offer it for a decent price i would buy it immediately.Yes, this my first suspicion. And if that would happen, I would get it too. Canon color scheme and ergonomics, and Sony sensor, yes please.
I wonder where they will source the sensor. Panasonic is using Sony's sensor so Canon does have access to it. They could also source it from Aptina or Sharp.My guess is that they will make it themselves. If they can put it in more than one model, this will probably be the case. Anyhow, this is VERY interesting, as I have been looking at the RX100 as a backup for my DSLR, but I am hesitant to go with Sony, as I don't like the ergonomics and color rendering.
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.
