I hope they are not referring to the "new sensor" from the SL1.

Most likely one and the same.

Sounds to me like Canon is in Panic Mode. Lots of new cameras No-One is asking for. First the lack-luster M without an EVF,  and now an APS-C Super Zoom (without an EVF). Keep throwing things at the wall, something will stick ... Yeah Right!!

Interesting.  Though at this price point..  Not sure I'd be interested...  For fixed lens...  I'd probably go something cheaper like the G15 or Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7...  On the high-end, I'd probably go with the Fuji X100 S.  The G1X/G2X is right there in the middle...  I just don't think the GXX would offer enough over the smaller cameras and not be cheap enough to sway you from the Fuji.  That Fuji is takin' numbers...

I pray that this camera has a superior EVF or competition beating viewfinder.

With the mirrorless sector going like gangbusters Canon is soo late to this party I hope they try and improve on what Fuji, Nikon, Ricoh, and the M4/3rds people are offering which is darn good.

You're Canon...it's time for an exciting new camera that is not a DSLR behemoth,

I might be interested, if the price isn't too high.  I currently have a S100 that I use as a back-up and pocketable camera for when I don't want to lug a DSLR and lens around, but want pictures better than my cell phone takes.  I'd like to replace this with a P&S with larger sensor and good manual controls.

TELL ME ABOUT IT,?.I love my Canon FF kit...it rocks..but when it comes to small POWERFUL cameras MFT has my vote and my money. I have no idea who would pay these absurd prices for the G series camera when you can own a kickass MFT for less than Canon's silly asking price for a small sensor camera with essentially no viewfinder. Arrogance is the only reason I see.
Now they have this new one coming with a larger sensor and are not even making a lame attempt to include a VF. They just eliminate it??? The M release has no VF or option for one and also has antique AF... I think Canon needs to scrap all of the above and introduce one compact meaningful mirrorless product line...They are a mess in this area.

That would be a 28mm-100mm f4.9-f13.2 equivalent, hardly anything to get very excited about.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

What is a short zoom?  Are we talking about a narrow zoom range or a short focal length?

Something like. 24-70 or something like 16-35?  (Equivalents).

Canon needs it. I have the SL1 right now and it is actually smaller than I thought with pretty good quality. Paired it up with the 40mm f/2.8 pancake and it works nicely. However, I still long for that Fuji X100s. It just looks unbelievable. Take a look at those High ISO files too, Amazing. You can download the RAW files from the review at: http://learningcameras.com/reviews/9-other/137-fuji-x100s-review

Canon should be able to do this if they wanted to although I'm wishing for a viewfinder. Big help on the Fuji so I'd like it there unless it means a way bigger camera.

thanks for the review
I'd be interested to see a head to head review vs the sony rx1

just some feedback
- these reviews have improved light years from when they started - good job
- I particularly like how you are integrating close ups more and more of features buttons  screens etc while talking and not having such long period of the video just focused on the speaker.
- more cut in's of images is good to show things
- still not quite there yet though there is still too much screen time of the dude juggling the camera or lens or whatever from hand to hand, this is just not interesting to watch for too long and it gets boring really quick.
- you had a crazy exposure change half way through this one
- wearing sunglasses is annoying especially with so much time of the view on the speaker.
- maybe make the reviews more dynamic, move around I think having a seperate person to take the vid my make it more interesting rather than the selfie style video.
- some features weren't mentioned x-sync speed?

but overall good information and good to see these reviews improving

F/1.8 is ALWAYS f/1.8!! Some people are more interested in shooting in Low Light than having oh-so-trendy paper-thin DOF. YMMV.
