We’ve heard only little bits of info about the mirrorless camera. The most notable is mentions that it will use the same sized sensor as the G1 X, and maybe even the exact same sensor.
And there we have it! This is exactly what I predicted a couple of weeks ago! Yet another let down down from Canon is on the horizon.
I guess the only way to get a mirrorless camera with FF is to dish out out $7000 - $8000 for the Leica M9, or the upcoming M10.
Dear Canon, why have you ceased to innovate and amaze?
Given that the consumer end of the range will be targeted at P&S upgraders, I can't see anything larger in terms of sensor size than the G1X sensor (or APS-C).
I will be a bit disappointed if Canon does not use the sensor tech from the 650D - the AF in the G1X has come in for a bit of criticism, so having phase detect AF would be a good improvement.
I will probably hold out for the prosumer/pro models to be announced.
