Hi Craig!

Maybe you could correct the Mark II typo in the subject.

Very interesting.

24-120mm lens (35mm equivalent)
will be interesting, how the size grows as for the APS-C and presumably bigger lens.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

It will be interesting to see how the increase to aps effects the lens quality and speed. Unless there is a big price hike I fear the actual zoom lens quality may suffer pro rata.

So... pretty much a fixed lens M6 then. That might be fun. 24-120 isn't something they have available for the M series yet, and is a pretty good range.

I wonder what the lens aperture (range) will be...
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

This actually looks pretty interesting if it has the lens from that patent.  f/5.8 is a little slow at the long end, but f/4  at 33mm on aps-c is quite nice.
I guess the remaining question will be the price.  I think the G1x mkII was released at $800, so I guess this one won't be any lower than that.

I'm not sure how to interpret the image height though - Image height 11.34 13.66 13.66
aps-c is 15mm in height (24/1.6).
Does that mean it is effectively going to crop the full sensor size (perhaps offering same FoV at different aspect ratios)?

image height is a radius on the patents, so it's double that really.

The 15-85 EF-S lens is a pretty substantial lens. This has a little shorter range, but not significantly so. They could save a bit of weight making the lens less robust, but I'm not sure how much. On the other hand, the 15-85 EF-S is a pretty outstanding lens in terms of optical performance (given it's range), so if the lens on this G1 X III is close in performance, it could be quite nice for a single lens travel camera.

It will also be interesting to see how it compares in size and weight to the SL2.

From the old days of the early G series progressing through a long series of evolutionary upgrades to the G1 X Mk III with full APS-C sensor.   Is is a milestone achievement to reach this point at last.

The 15-85 has to deal with design constraints that this won't being that it's for a camera with a mirror box and thus much longer register difference.

Huh,  if it has a viewfinder might skip the M5.

image height is a radius on the patents, so it's double that really.

Thanks, so with the aps-c diagonal at 26.70mm, image height of 11.34 at the wide end is going to result in 2mm diagonal of unused sensor in the corners.  Presumably this means there will be some fish-eye distortion built-in at the wide end which would be corrected automatically as the images are processed (much like most recent compacts).

At the mid (33mm) and long (75mm) ends of the zoom, the full sensor will be covered by the image, so hopefully there won't be much distortion.

This seems like a good compromise to keep the size of the lens to a minimum, since as mentioned above, the 15-85mm is quite big.

it probably wont.  the G1X Mark II used an external.

24-120mm or 15-75mm or 15-50mm?

Given Canon has had over 3.5 years to work on this version, a reduction in weight and size with 24-120mm on an APS-C sensor is expected. 

Anything else will be disappointing.

Otherwise opt for a more compact Sony A6000 with kit lens.
