Yes, but I do not think there is a comparison. We had all the G cameras with increasing numbers after all. Anyway the naming scheme is not important, they can make it whatever they want as far as the new specifications satisfy...
That's quite a ... pro tool
It seems logical that a new model would be named G2 X and not G1 X II...
Not if Canon follow the nomenclature they have followed for many years if they really do consider the G1X a pro tool, which they have always said they do.
The G10 was used by a lot of pros. But here is what Canon say about the G1X
The Pinnacle of PowerShot.
Bright, fast and more creative than ever: advanced technologies come together for an exciting new camera that moves beyond anything the G-Series has seen before. The PowerShot G1 X digital camera will inspire advanced amateurs who have embraced the G-Series to explore new realms of photographic expression, and give pros an excellent camera that complements their creative demands.
Just pointing out that whilst G2X makes some sense, so does G1X II, it isn't like we haven't had a 5D MkII, and MkIII, and a 1D MkI, and MkII, and MkIII and MkIV is it?
In what dimension does G1X follow G12?
Who said such a thing? Dreaming? Is it so hard to think that since there were G1, G2, G3, etc cameras they could very well be G1X, G2X, G3X, etc... Sorry if I didn't express the obvious thought even more clearly...
