I wish Northlight Images had a comment section so we could trash the idiot that questioned the legitimacy of that leaked image. Guy even went so far as to criticize the sites that "rushed to accepting it" including this one.

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.
That's quite a ...  pro tool  ;D

The G10 was used by a lot of pros. But here is what Canon say about the G1X
Quote
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?
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...

In what dimension does G1X follow G12?

For what it is worth, this image appears not to have been a fake after all

Here is the same official canon image
http://www.canon.co.uk/Images/PowerShot G1 X Mark II BEAUTY ACC EVF_tcm14-1123568.jpg?width=600&height=400

The one that started this thread might be low quality, but it seems to me it is the same shot - identical perspective, features etc.

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...

Every time a very detailed image comes out, people question its legitimacy.

Every time it has proved to be a real camera, not a fake.

What's even more hilarious is all of those that just join the chorus and pick on some aspect of the image that doesn't look right to them without them having any real way of knowing.
