I love my G1 X as both a photo and video camera. However, this doesn't seem to be nearly enough improvement to even consider buying one.

Hopefully:
- the EVF is compatible with the EOS-M
- better battery life
- and improved focus speed (phase detect or dual pixel)


The real news here is the modular EVF, isn't it?  Isn't this a first for Canon? Discuss!

EOS-M desperately needs a viewfinder (and more native EF-M glass) for the enthusiast mirrorless crowd to take it seriously.  I am assuming that this wouldn't be compatible with the EOS-M as the sensor is not the same, the FOV is not the same, etc.  But what do you folks think?

Is the EVF literally just a cloning of whatever the LCD shows, or will it add 'eyepiece logical' tools like focus peaking, live histograms, etc.?

Does this mean there is definitely no dual-pixel AF in the GXII?

It looks like that ... otherwise they would have "leaked" that info first.

Could have been a nice "always carry" camera if they had updated the sensor to the dual-pixel type of the 70D.  At least then it could focus well for both stills and video clips.  As it is, not very interesting except for the optional EVF.

I'm always amazed that people care about how a camera looks.  It doesn't take pictures of itself.

I always find this comment interesting.  Why should this bother anyone to the point of a snarky comment?  It seems to me that photographers are more visually in tune with their world and more likely to appreciate beautiful design.  I know I feel better owning and using something that feels beautiful to me.  That's not to say I wouldn't purchase a DSLR disguised as a pile of poo if Canon put an EXMOR sensor in it...but I digress.  I don't think I'm going out on a limb to suggest that one reason people pay a premium for RRS and Apple products is their design.

If you're not printing big, 12mp might be amazing with the right other specs

116mm & 553/516g - my EOS-M/22mm is 410g (incl battery&card) and a tick smaller. Promising quality of the body.

Hopefully:
- the EVF is compatible with the EOS-M
- better battery life
- and improved focus speed (phase detect or dual pixel)

What a dream if the lens would be removable........although I doubt.

answers :
- no (on the g1x picture, you can see a sort of com port near the hotshoe)
- not really (leaked catalog indicates 240 and 300 pictures with NB12-L when eos m says 230 shots
- no dual pixel so far, but i really hope a fast AF too!!

Why do you want the lens to be removable?? it's not the purpose of the G series.
hmmm.... in fact, you dream about a more enthusiast eos M, right?

Love the lens on this thing.  The zoom range and speed hit a sweet spot for me.  Very curious about sensor quality.  I've lost all faith in Canon's sensor tech.  If its dynamic range ends up the same as it's been over the last five years that's probably a deal killer.  I'd rather wait for Sony to add non-lossy RAW to the A7r and pair that with the upcoming Novoflex EOS adapter.  It's a bigger, more expensive solution but the IQ is potentially far superior.

Ugly camera - not because its "look" - but because it looks a huge step backward in usability compared to the G1X. No dials and a touch screen? C'mon! I was looking for something smaller and lighter than my 5D to carry around every day - I was about to get a G1X but waited when the M was announced - then the M was almost a joke and hoped something better with a true viewefinder (EVF, OVF, EVF+OVF...) would come, now this one that looks like a Powershot S? No way to spend something alike 700+ on something like this. Maybe I'll get a bargain G1X, or somthing better - but it looks it won't be from Canon unless they surprise me with a far better M model.

unless you're a fan of big prints (16x24", A2 or more), you seems to be a marketing victim.

Indeed, I should not compare a canon point and wait shoot with a mirrorless.

The pics on best buy's listing look good.  I'm glad the tilting LCD still allows for selfies and overhead shots.  I guess that only gives up on low-angle portrait orientation, not a huge loss. 

The tilt screen will tilt up as well as down. I assume just like the screen on the RX100.

It has two front control dials.  My guess is that at least one, if not both are programmable.
