The G1-3 is a little bigger than the RX100, I wish they would make it a fraction bigger but put a 1 stop brighter lens, it would be an instant pre-order from me.

Ja, the f/5.6 is strangely faster than the EF-M 15-45 but even still seems too slow vs. the compacts.  Most of the premium fixed lens rigs with smaller sensors miraculously jam fast glass in there, but I'm guessing that may have been problematic for APS-C.

What the smallest APS-C zoom anyone has ever seen?  Would f/4 on the long end have made this collapsible lens design impractical or too large?

An f/4 would be da bomb :)

IMHO all Canon needs is to make this lens https://www.sony.com/electronics/camera-lenses/selp1650 but good quality. Put it on an M6 and all problems solved.

Maybe all you need is a printer and a laminator...

Stay classy, Neuro.   ;)

Yeah, the guy who pulled off the Conor MacGregor laminated pass move wins the prize.  I'm not in MMA/boxing at all, but holy hell did that guy pull off quite the caper.

thx!  ;D ;D ;D

He could have used a G1X III ... he got close enough to make do with a 24-70 eq. zoom ;-) ... but his iPhone shoots 4k, so he just went with it.   ;D

yea, it lost me at 3x zoom, especially since they have such a long zoom on the G3 X and its only slightly larger

Looking at several comments and general reaction, it seems to me the APS-C sensor is not a big deal for a potential group of audience who looks at this camera. From lens speed to zoom range it's compared to classic compact camera ecosystem where the largest sensor you may have is 1". On the other hand, it does not have the retro range finder look that Fuji X100 offers. It's a somewhat new offering and I'm curious how will it be received in the market.

Thom Hogan's take on the G1X III ... http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/another-canon-aps-c-option.html

I totally agree with his assessment, why the G1X III has such #Canon-fugly llooks

The G1 X Mark III is a bit of an ugly duckling. The proportions don't look right, with a large EVF+flash up top and the declining size, multi-stage power zoom lens looking very odd together. It's also unclear why the right hand grip is as shallow as it is, given that the collapsed lens still sticks out further.

I disagree. I read it like as if there was nothing to talk about at this point, so why not wrote it is ugly.
To be honest, I've been waiting for this camera since Mark II was out.
Where else can you find this camera with these features. And Canon made if possible.
1. I wonder if a camera exist with APC size that is small enough?
2. I want it to have vari-angle so I can take selfie.
3. I want it to have touch screen and DPAF so I can ask some one take photo of me, and easy for them.

How else can you mount flash and EVF. It should be on the center - this is the specs and they made it right.
Why would you want hand grip to be thicker? - we want it to be small factor.

And to compare it with Eos M5. LOL. Does the eos M5 has vari-angle screen?
The question is, if the G1x M3 is as capable as M5, why buy the M5, if you don't change lens as much?

And Really.. You want to debate manufacturer about pricing?

i don't debate. i observe, comment, criticize abd applaud. and yes, i am entitled to do so. :-)

E.g. that fully articulated LCD on the G1X III just highlights how stupid Canon's half-assed implementations of the flip-flap LCDs on both EOS M5 and M6 really is.

and i would prefer the EVF placed as pop-up in top left corner of camera, not in a hump. much better for  the clear majority of right-eyed users like me.

As far as pricing goes, Canon's only competing against itself it would appear:

EOS M5 + 15-45 kit = $1049

G1x3 = same as above + leaf shutter + smaller footprint + slightly brighter lens + non-modular mount (for getting into events/sports) = $1299

Seems about right in that light.  Both are overpriced, of course, but I see why a G1x3 would have a higher price than the M5 kit.

not questioning each and every supplier's pricing for each and every product ... is ... plain stupid.  :)

Wow, I never knew... Dogs think that licking their stuff is how they squeeze the most of you? :D

Why?
See the product, try it out, look at the price...are you willing to pay.
Knowing the cost model they used will not change the fact whether it is worth buying. On that basis, non-one would buy Apple gear.

Try pissing into the wind instead, it may be more effective…
