"Dust & water resistant"

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

That's the reason why I came here to comment, but seems like no need to :)

I remember when I got my first RX100 it collected so much dust!

This one definitely goes to my GAS list.

So disappointing.  They would had been better to stuck with the 1.5" sensor and given it a decent sensor.  That was the real problem with the II.

Sony keeps leading and poor Canon keeps spinning to Canonitis....To never go the full step you really need to innovate and take over the market.




I can bet that there is no 4k and it's going to look like the G5x/M5 with the little hump for the EVF.

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.

WTF is Dynamic IS? Is that just marketing bull#% for electronic stabilization?

How does one take over the market when one is already the market leader? 🤔

well, had Canon Launched a "really right" EOS MILC system with both APS-C sensor (instead of a totally underpowered and overpriced EOS M Mk. I) and with FF-sensor at the time Sony came out with the A7 (16. oct 2013 !) then today
* Sony would likely have followed Samsung and not be selling stills cameras any longer
* Nikon would likely be bust
* Fujifilm would have less than 1% market share
* Olympis would be bust (maybe they are anyways)

and Canon would have owned the market and ruled supreme. but ... stupid Canon!

except Sony is still at 14% marketshare and completely lost their A-Mount marketshare which was at one as high as 18%.

no one company will rule supreme, and thinking that canon would take Fuji's marketshare is idiotic, people buy Fuji because of the unique characteristics of the cameras.

I'm not sure why you think that a) canon has unlimited resources to work on lenses b) unlimited resources to work on camera bodies.

Canon has increased it's marketshare without hurting it's brand and EF mount marketshare.  that's something Sony hasn't done.

I suggest you go to dpreview and look up canon's lens interview / tour that dpreview staff did.  there's only so many engineers that canon has that develops lenses.  most of them have been working with canon for 20+ years before they get to that point.

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.

this got lost in the overwhelming sniveling over a rumor.

15-44mm f/1.8-3.5 - is pretty good given the fact it's a compact and APS-C.

I would love to see this lens really on an M5 versus the ordinary kit lenses we have, or a little bigger and go with a 2.8-4.0 24-70mm lens.

i dont think it will be 15-44/1.8-3.5. i expect it to be 15-44 / 2.8-5.6. only fov equivalence to 24-70 on Ff. ;-)

1.8-3.5 would not fit into a G1 size package with APS-C sensor ... EF-M 15-45 is 3.5-5.6 ... on G1X III lens can be stuck a bit closer to sensor, they can possibly use a lens formula for f/2.8 instead of 3.5 on the wide end. but never 1.8 ...

MAJOR disappointment: 24-70mm f/2.8-5.6
yep, my thoughts exactly

+1 . A camera with 24-70 f2.8-5.6 lens is DOA ! If it was apsc with a 24-70 f2.0-4.0 i would buy it instanly. Or if it was 24-120 f2.8-5.6 i would really,really thinq about buying it ,but 24-70 f2.8-5.6 hell no ! Better just wait for Panasonic LX 200

Well I am most interested to see what this camera looks like now...  With confirmation on the EVF, it does seem like it will basically be the guts of an M5 with a 15-45mm lens attached.

15-45 f/2.8-5.6 is already an improvement over the EF-M 15-45 f/3.5-f/6.3 in aperture.
I'd love to see a 15-45 f/2.0-4.0, but realistically I think that will end up too big, heavy and expensive for this camera.
