If the image is accurate it also appears to be missing:
- Exposure compensation dial (under the mode dial on the G1X)
- Front control wheel (under the shutter / zoom on the G1X)

Both of these changes seem strange for a 'G' series camera.

Phil.

Is it my imagination, or are there two control wheels on the lens?

Layout looks more like an S1xx series camera than a G1X successor. If it is a G1X successor, then the compensation dial is gone and adjustments are done via the universal dial in the rear. That would be strange.

The G1X has that bumpy section on the lens; but it is for grip, not a control wheel.

Having two such sections, with one close to the camera, is different - so perhaps there is a control wheel.

This looks like Canon is trying to make it look like a mirrorless camera, rather than the rangefinder style of the current model, which I own and really like.

The current model is mirrorless as are all Canon P&S cameras.  They just do not have interchangeable lenses.  A rangefinder camera is something totally different.

Definitely looks more like the S120 and RX100 than the current G1X or even G16.

Layout looks more like an S1xx series camera than a G1X successor. If it is a G1X successor, then the compensation dial is gone and adjustments are done via the universal dial in the rear. That would be strange.

I have to agree. I wonder if, perhaps, this is the S200, which also happens to be the G1X replacement? OR, this is the S200, which is to the G2X what the S1xx series is to the Gxx series? If the latter, perhaps this marks the end of the 1/1.7 sensor line in favor of APS-C?

You raise a very good point.  Unclear exactly what or how the S200 is intended to be targeted.

The S200 seems confusing as wasn't that model name introduced last year along the S120, but not for the US.

I'm much more interested in the rumored spec of the wider, longer, and larger aperture lens.
Canon 6d, t1i, 20/2.8, 28/1.8, 40/2.8, 50/1.8II, 100/2.8 macro, 70-300/4-5.6, g1x, 430exII, 90ex
Elan 7N with 28-105/3.5-4.5II, Rebel G with 35-70/3.5-4.5, A-1 with 28/2.8, 50/1.8, and 135/3.5

I'm caring about the CMOS sensor ratio factor, hoping it will be 3:2, no more 4:3. PS: G1X is 4:3, however Sony RX100/RX100 M2 is 3:2. Yeah for the sensor size, the former is 1.5", it's much better than the latter, 1".

Now if the top dials are gone, is it possible that Canon's engineers placed it around the lens barrel as a second control ring? And while you're looking through the EVF, you can zoom in and out, and control exposure and see the result immediately thru the EVF? Add eye-control focus like in the old A2E and that could make for some awesomely speedy composing. But I'm just dreaming now. :D

This might be a response to Sony's RX100 II. If so, i'm intrigued.

External EVF

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both Panasonic and Olympus tried that ... and both realised that it doesn't sell very well ... people prefer the EVF built into the camera.

If this part of the rumour is true, then it shows that Canon is playing copy-cat catch-up ... and not thinking for themselves. Well, what else is news?
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

Some more views please. Interested to see what sensor canon will put inside this premium compact.

Very interesting, that silver ring near the body strangely looks like a metal lens mount...

Canon's answer to the Nikon 1?

Like I said, it looks like this will have interchangeable lenses  ;D ;D ;D
