Someone in Canon once said in a DPReview interview that Canon has no plans to use 1" sensors.

If the spec is true, how big will the filter be??? Sony RX10 is already using a 63mm filter for the f 2.8 (24 to 200mm equilvalent) lens. The lens itself will be a  monster for the G17. Sony already selling the RX10 at $1300. With a faster lens, what will be the pricing for the  "G17"??

> Might be a Sony RX10 killer if specs are true

Having switched from Canons: 10D 20D 40D 7D
to RX10, it would need to have
a. same or better image quality
b. faster zooming speed (an RX10 weakness)
c. same weight or less

I think Canon is droping the G1#'s series and moving in G1X's series, sort of what they did with the 1D series - now just 1Dx.....

G1Xmk2 was in rumour status for a while...and now a G17 competing model just "pops" out of nowhere?

sure, why not - so typical of Canon
Canon shooter, but anything goes as ammunition (L, non L, Zeiss, Leica, Rokinon,Sigma)

i guess they just got it wrong and it´s a 1 /1.7" sensor like in the G16.
