This is to my knowledge the first compact with APS-C and zoom. (...)

Leica X Vario was announced in June 2013. Its sensor is bigger than that of the PowerShot (APS-C with x1.5 crop factor vs x1.6)

it's a 1.53 crop versus a 1.5 crop really making that entire point pretty moot and overblown yet again.

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

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.

Neuro, your logic is sound as always, your facts correct; but did you have to deliver it with an insult? You're the first in the thread to drag the tone down.  I used to love reading your posts, please bring back the old neuro :)
The first? This camera has been dogged a hundred times before he chimed in. Myself? I kind of like it. ;)

I've no problem with him hurling disdain (or praise) on gear with ruthless accuracy :) I was just referring to the comment in which the only content was deriding another forum poster.
