Hold on, am i reading this right?
Every one happy with a Canon release?
No dissenting warriors? No one gonna jump ship because Fuji and Sony are doing it better?
No parts missed, no massive features missed that makes you wonder what Canon have being all this time?
Well, I'm a little disappointed. It's bigger than the G12, which was already at the upper limit of acceptable size for me. And I expected the GPS and high-frame-rate video features from the S100, which aren't there. OK, maybe that sensor can't do the high-rate video, but surely they could find room for the S100's GPS in there.
Personally, I'd have preferred a smaller body with a sensor midway between what they did and the G11/G12 (something like Nikon's 1 inch sensor).
But I do understand their thinking - it's a spec war, now about sensor size instead of megapixels.
On the plus side, the big sensor is nice to have, and they kept the flippy screen (love those!) and made it bigger and with more pixels on it.
I have a G11; I'm tempted to see if I can get a real bargain on a G12 as they're closed out, and then wait for the G2X in another 18 months.
I think I'll wait for the reviews and then decide.
