UPDATED: Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Specifications
« on: September 29, 2017, 02:41:38 PM »
We’ve received some new specifications for the upcoming Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III, which is scheduled to be announced in mid October. We’ve been told to think EOS M5 with a fixed lens.

Updated Specifications & Corrections: (Update in bold)

  • 24.2mp APS-C Sensor
  • DIGIC 7
  • 24-70mm f/2.8-5.6 (approximate 35mm equivalent) Previously reported as 24-120mm
  • Dynamic IS
  • Touch AF
  • Dust & water resistant
  • Lens hood LH-DC 110
  • Water proof case WP-DC56 (via Nokishita)

We still don’t know if the PowerShot G1 X Mark III will come with an built-in EVF or not.

We’ll update this post if we hear anything else.

*Update* We’ve confirmed that the PowerShot G1 X Mark III will come with a built-in OLED EVF.

"Dust & water resistant"

That's the best news. Could be a great travel camera if they manage to keep the size down.

hehehe. There are no miracles in physics and optics.  ;D
A 15-44/2.8 - 5.6 lens [with f/2.8 from 15-18mm]  is much more feasible in G1X form factor than a 15-75  ...  :)

I was really really hoping for a better lens range that 24-70mm.  My Powershot S100 has as 24-120mm which I was hoping the first iteration of rumors about this camera having the same lens was accurate.

Still... It's looking like a great camera and I'm excited to see it in person when it comes out!

EOS M5 with a bolted-on EF-M 15-45.  :)

Very disappointing focal lengths and long-end aperture.  No thanks if these specs are true.

Well almost certainly better sensor than the II, but interesting trade-off in the lens:
24-120mm f/2-3.9 vs 24-70 f/2.8-5.6
In the first instance, a very versatile do-everything range going from wide to mid-telephoto good for landscapes, interiors, portraits, and in the second instance, the standard "wedding zoom" meaning good wide angle to decent short telephoto for portraiture as long as not too tight in (not the best for head shots). I guess if one did not need the telephoto end of things, this isn't too bad. I can see missing a few shots during travel where you might have wanted to zoom further in. As for the aperture, f/5.6 by 70mm certainly is a tad disappointing.
Other factors: what is dynamic IS? Is this the video-only IS again?
Better (DP)AF is nice though I must admit - the old model's big Achilles heel was the slow AF.
Still, considering I already have the waterproofing kit and EVF for the II, I'm not sure this is enough to make me want to switch. After all, if the APS-C sensor was that important, I'd still use the M5 and a faster lens. If not, then the II makes more sense. Bad trade-off, IMHO.

24-70mm f/2.8-5.6 (approximate 35mm equivalent) <em>Previously reported as 24-120mm</em>
Maybe the aperture is 35mm equiv. too.  ???

So it'd be 15-44mm f/1.8-3.5... I mean, otherwise it's a bit sad IMO. I'd rather go with M5 and a couple of lenses.

Wishful thinking...
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

I think you're correct and this will be the 15-43mm f2 to f4 patent that some have suggested would be the new G1X iii lens. If it really is f2.8 to f5.6 that is just sad.

2.9x zoom would be the worst zoom range on any Canon compact camera since 2006. The f/2.8 wide angle aperture is effectively 0.4 fstops worse than with Mark II. On the tele end it is 0.5 fstops worse and this does not even count the much reduced zoom range. I fact the maximum aperture would be just 7.8 mm, much less than with G7 X (13 mm). Sure one gets twice the megapixels but they are not everything. There has to be some extra bonus like reduced size. EOS M100 with the 15-45 mm is 430 grams, G1 X Mark II is 550 grams. This has to be in the 400-450 gram range to have a chance.

Eh, it was pretty clear that a bigger sensor and a bigger lens would bring lower f numbers. An APS-C 15-45 f/2.8, not to mention something ridiculous like f/1.8-3.5, would be huge and hilariously expensive.

Sure, but if it's a 15-45mm f/2.8-5.6... it's effectively worse than what G1X II has, hell it's actually worse than G7X II!

The only questions left are will it have 4K and how large will it be?  I'd love to see Panasonic come out with an lx100 ii with a 20mp sensor.
