So let me do the calculation for you:

Seems your math skills are ok, it's your logical skills that are woefully lacking.

Come on Neuro, those options are in the same vein,
it is just you being mad that this would be a better option than your beloved M6 + EFM 11-22mm

Indeed. 

Another Canon Flop. 

$799 by Christmas...

Once again Panasonic will nails it with the LX200 while Canon missed another opportunity.


This pricing is completely insane.

1299 $ ? What is Canon smoking ? I would had payd up to 999$ if the camera was waaay better than the old model and better than the RX series too , but this price is insane . I don't care how good the camera will be. Canon , this it's not a FF or medium format compact camera !!!  Now I'm waiting for a Panasonic LX 200 , hope it will arrive soon.

[...]

Add that with a hotshot, lens IS, internal ND filter and leave shutter and some digital IS and you have a killer option.

Leaf shutter with 1/500 or 1/1000 flash synchronization would be an interesting option worth hundreds of bucks for those who do flash photography.
And the optional waterproof case makes sense with a large sensor with good max aperture at the lower zoom end.

But 1299 is a big amount of money for giving away the flexibility to change lenses.

Motivates me to design some rain proof thingy for my SL2 with a printed lens hood bayonet to combine a filter + a transparent plastic bag - maybe with a 82 diameter UV filter - so I can use 11-22 ... 60 macro ... 2.0 100mm lenses!

hehehe, Canon pricing. otoh, if it really is an EOS M5 in a smaller package including a really good lens ... better and faster than EF-M kitzooms ... and it is MSRP ... streetprice in a few months will be rather different.

Come on Neuro, those options are in the same vein,

No, it's just you being completely obtuse.  First off, there is a substantial difference between 11mm and 15mm (17.6 vs. 24 mm full frame FoV).  So, a 15-44mm lens doesn't replace, much less constitute 'better than', an 11-xx lens.  Different is not the same as better.

But even ignoring that simple fact, your list of lenses is ridiculous and asinine.   If you want to make a proper calculation, this new PowerShot replaces the 15-45 + 22 or the 18-55 + 24 or the 17-40L.  If you actually do believe (foolishly) that a wide angle is the same as an ultra wide, even then it's the 11-22 + 15-45 + 22 or the 10-18 + 18-55 + 24.  Either way, not more than $700.  Any way you slice it, this PowerShot is way overpriced.

All you've managed to demonstrate with your "calculation" is that you can add numbers…and maybe you needed a calculator to even do that.

WOW... the G1 X II retails new for 559€ right now. Paying more than double that for the Mark III....no way!

It would at least need 4K and be otherwise pretty much perfect, so I'd even be considering to buy one.

People thought the m5 was overpriced (including me) and it still sold well.  However, if this camera doesn't have 4K it'll be a disaster.

Ok but can we drop the negativity in the comment section below??

The camera will have a better screen and navigation than you will ever find on a Sony/fuji.
If the camera has the rumored 15-43mm F2-4 and aspherical elements lens,
It be on par sharpness wise with the Canon efm 15-45mm kit.
There will finally be a faster APS-C wide angle option, so replaces your efs 10-18mm and efm 11-22 ,
will be as fast as the 24mm F2.8 on a rebel dslr. And compared to the EFM 22 will be stabilized. And the lens will be faster than any other kit lens that is provided by the other mfg, so you can forget about the latest small 18-55mm F4-5.6 kitlens as well. Even if you had considers the 17-40mm L for your crop, this can replace everything. Next to that, while the lens is stuck, you do not have to worry all that much about dust and sensor cleaning.

So let me do the calculation for you:
EFM 15-45mm kit : 200$
EFS 10-18mm : 150$
EFS 24mm : 80$
EFM 22mm : 150$
EFM 11-22mm : 350$
EFS 18-55mm : 80$
EF 17-40mmL : 600$

Total: 1610$. That is a lot money to be saved!

Add that with a hotshot, lens IS, internal ND filter and leave shutter and some digital IS and you have a killer option.

I'm genuinely curious to know if someone can be more delusional than you....

I don't believe someone would/can post a comment like this unless they are paid by canon.

weird everyone crying about this.

the only APS-C compact camera that is current (the Ricoh is 4 years old now) is the Fuji X100F that goes for what.. $1299.

and this has a 24-70mm 2.8-5.6 zoom and not a 35mm 2.8 (equiv) prime.

The fuji  has 1080p as well.  Don't see many people whining about that camera.  Heck dpreview gave it a gold award ;)

if canon does well on the lens front this will be a great little camera that is unmatched in the industry.  People whine about canon not being innovative.  This is an innovate camera. No one else makes something like this.

I think the problem is the EF-M 15-45mm lens.  True it doesn't get the best reviews but how much smaller can this camera be than an M5 with the 15-45mm lens and how much better will the lens be?  And will it be worth it to lose the versatility of switching lenses?

the EF-M 15-45 isn't an equivalent lens to something they can put into a compact.  this was a unique patent from canon specifically designed for a compact camera, not the EF-M lens.

it takes a special person to start complaining about the lens quality before the camera is released ... no?

and it's a compact camera. it will be smaller than the M5 + 15-45 most likely. that's what you get. and if you don't like it, there's an M5 + 15-45.

It's also immaterial it's not as if you can't get a Fuji X-A3 + 23mm pancake instead of the X100F right?

it stands alone has the only APS-C zoom compact, and is rumored to sell for the same as the other high end APS-C compact - the X100F.

what exactly is wrong with the price again?

yeah let's compare a m43's camera against an APS-C and suggest equivalent cameras.
