i think it´s obvious that the camera has a flash. :)

I agree, if you look close to the front picture, it looks like a flash release level on the camera side. And if you look at the back picture, it looks like a part of the top of the camera is "loose".

So, in essence, it's a larger-sensor S120, right?

It very obviously has a pop-up flash ;)

To me it looks like a "grown up" G15. The sensor is smaller than the original G1X, but may have new technology that allows noise performance as good as G1X (hopefully). ::) Who wants a larger sensor, you can opt for the EOS-M, or Sl1. 8)

I don't think so.

Canon came to the conclusion that it was wrong when too much money invested in original G1X sensor for (relatively) few units sold. This time we decided to make a smaller sensor that fits on other models. You can do other camera models with this same sensor, and darker, or shorter zoom lens, allowing better fit in pockets.

I don't think so.
If the sensor is not smaller than the G1X original, so the lens is 12.5 mm ultra wide angle. That would be unlikely. I bet the sensor is 4/3 as Olympus and Panasonic.

The original sensor was 1.85 crop as specified by Canon.  If this one is the same, that's about 23mm at the wide end.  The S120 is 24mm, as are many other compacts.  I agree with what was said above - Canon will probably call this 24-120, just like the S120.

Actually, how about this.

The original G1X sensor is 18.7mm x 14mm, which is 4:3 aspect ratio.  What if this one is 18.7mm x 12.5mm for 2:3 aspect ratio.  The horizontal crop factor is 36mm/18.7mm = 1.925.

1.925*12.5mm = 24mm
1.925*62.5mm = 120mm

So, I'm guessing the sensor is the same horizontal dimension as the G1X, but 3:2, making this camera specified at 24-120mm equivalent.

Someone on DPReview found a spec sheet that essentially says both are true - it's a 4:3 sensor but the lens image circle doesn't cover the whole thing.  So, in 3:2 mode, it's actually as I said above.  In 4:3 mode, it's narrower and taller.

This is one way to make the lens smaller and faster - give it a smaller image circle.

EDIT:  And now the final specs posted confirm this.

Could this be the ultimate no-fuss travel camera?

That is what I am thinking. 

Then again, I will probably still choose the 5Dm2 and it's hassle of carrying the size and weight over this camera.

Now, if I didn't have my 5Dm2, this might be the camera I was looking for.
