At the rumoured price, I was kind of expecting to see a red ring around the lens.
Pro1 was the last Powershot with Red ring, Canon is just too stubborn in "protecting" its "high" end cameras.

Haha. This is by far the ugliest camera I have ever seen. Plus, no 4K and high price = epic fail. Is Canon just making fun of themselves at this point? I picture some engineer or PM playing a joke on an executive and trying to convince them it's good....

Yeah, I reckon I've got a grasp on what a compact camera is, thanks for asking. But have you ever held an X-E1/2/3? I own one and can tell you now, just by looking at it, that this isn't that much smaller. Oh, and at no point did I compare it to the X100F. And if you want to go really small there's the Sony RX100IV. I'm just pointing out that the specs on this are terrible in comparison to the competition.

The only comparable APS-C not-interchangeable lens camera is Fujifilm X100F.
Is X100F really smaller and lighter than G1X III?
At least spec sheet tells something different than what the eyes may perceive.

X100F:  126.5mm (W) x 74.8mm (H) x 52.4mm (D) Approx. 469g  (including battery and memory card)
G1X III: 115.0mm (W) x 77.9mm (H) x 51.4 mm (D) Approx. 399g (including battery and memory card)

They are two different camera types but as far as spec says they are very similar.
Not a surprise that they are similarly priced either.

sure if you ignore the fact that it's the only current production APS-C sensor based compact camera.

the only real differences are rangefinder OVF and fixed lens versus zoom.

the rest of the camera is remarkably similar.

There's also the Ricoh GR II.  Even then, I fail to see the advantage of this camera over something the G5XII, it seems like a downgrade.  You'll get a very slight increase (~1/3rd stop) in base ISO DR and about a stop increase in mid tone SNR at base ISO, but almost everywhere else you'll be worse off due to the effectively faster, and wider range, lens in the older camera.  That lens is going to have to be an absolutely stellar performer for this camera to make any sense at all.

G5XII equivalent parameters ==> 23.76-99.36mm f/4.86-7.56
G5XIII equivalent parameters ==> 24-72mm f/4.48-8.96
Bodies: X-T1, E-M1, E-M1ii, Pen-F Lenses:  µ.Z 7-14 2.8, µ.Z 12-40 2.8, µ.Z 17 1.8, µ.Z 25 1.2, X 18-55 2.8-4, µ.Z 40-150 2.8, µ.Z 60 2.8, µ.Z 75 1.8, Z 150 2.0, µ.Z 300 4.0

Oh man, this is even uglier than the M5 :-)

I care about what the camera can do, and zero about how it "looks".  Are you expecting the appearance of the camera to swoon the ladies or something?

Lets see the camera in the wild before writing it off. Sure the battery performance look poor from the leaked spec. but no one knows how good the lens is or how well it feels in your hand and what the picture quality is like.
Its expensive that much I will agree on so it will need to be good.

OK after the initial shock of the new, I kinda like the looks of the thing.  Yeah it's a bit lumpy but also funky in a cool-ish way--it would grow on me I think.  And it's a camera after all--not jewelry as some buy cameras for.  I think the specs are great for a relatively tiny camera that you can keep hung around your neck all day.  I would have preferred a rangefinder-style bump-less top--but I'm sure the view through this is better than that would have been.

So yeah.

Very interesting, the microphone cutouts are much bigger.

One question remains, does it have a microphone jack? Yes or no?

G5X 23,76-99,36 4,86-7,56
G1X3 24-72 4,48-8,96

G5X 1" sensor.
G1X Mark III, APS-C sensor.

conclusion: know what you are comparing.

The sensor size difference has been counted in these. The APS-C might benefit from lower base ISO though. One inch has ISO 125 which is equivalent to ISO 350 in APS-C.

If you can't figure out how to properly quote a post; are too lazy to look at the preview; and can't be bothered learning a few basic HTML codes...quit wasting valuable Internet space. We could run out.

I don't really have a huge issue with the specs of this camera.  Slightly disappointed no 4k, but not a deal-breaker personally.  I think it's quite a feat to squeeze an APS-C sensor in this size body with a zoom lens.

What I do have an issue with is the value proposition.  This seems to be the exact same price as an EOS M5 with 15-45 AND adding the 22mm f/2.  So this G1XIII is about 1/2 stop faster on the wide end, but same speed at the longer end as the 15-45.  Not sure if that is compelling enough personally for me to pick over the M5 with the 2 lenses mentioned.

Ultimately the small size is impressive, but again this kind of goes back to the question I've wrestled with maybe the last 5-6 years.  If a camera is not truly pocketable (and the G1X III is not for me, it's a small bag camera), then why not just carry a small mirrorless setup with 1-2 lenses instead, since you are carrying a bag anyways.  In that case again, I'd prefer the EOS M5 with 15-45 and 22 f/2.

No 4K...fail
Horrible battery life...fail
Ugly as heck...fail
Slow, short zoom lens...fail
Insane price...fail

They put a dial right in the way of where you grip it!

You blew it Canon.

Let s wait - if the price IS insane the market will correct it down to a sane price.
Remember EOS M classic, a good camera which was not accepted by the
market and was available at insanely low prices a year later.

And I do not understand the hype around 4k for such a camera. If I would do 4k
I would do that for a premium cinema movie for a full length documentary or
other kind of movie. Then I would prefer a 4k movie camera ...
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

It is October 2017 and one will have a hard time finding a new TV on sale with 1080p resolution. All specs aside I will not buy another travel compact without 4K video.  After all these years Panny LX100 seems like a much better all around choice at half the price. Go figure.
I do hope those who are not interested in video will be happy with this camera. For me, other than the sensor in a small body this camera doesn't seem too impressive. Maybe the actual camera will be better than the rumors.

While 4k prices have certainly come down, this statement is just not true.

For me, it's more like... it's October 2017, and there still isn't enough 4k content that I'm interested in watching to make a 4k TV upgrade worthwhile.  I have fiber to my home with available 4k, yet the only content is some sports stuff that I have no interest in, and House of Cards if I'm willing to pay more money each year.

Agree, with no 4K???

Costing over $1300?

And design is nothing more than poor selling G5X....

Oh man, this is even uglier than the M5 :-)
