Do you really think that Canon wants to compete with Leica? Those cameras are so expensive!

LoL judging by the latest pricing and all the tear caused by it i would say yes :P

but jokes aside I meant more from a performance/ IQ perspective not price point

Leica prices are also largely a status thing too which generates some degree of exclusivity

Apart from Leica cameras being so expensive, they probably occupy such a small market niche that it is not worth Canon's while to pursue.

I think the number of people that would snap up something similar, that is much more reasonably priced, is considerably larger than the small leica user base due to the price of the leica M mount system being excessive for most

Er the announcement day is alleged to be the 24th of July, so nope - they didn't announce anything on the 24th of June.

Enjoy reading this site as always. :)

Any chance that the SX-50HS might be announced this summer?  (Also how long after announcement/release would I have to wait for CHDK?)

As for a mirrorless ... I'd love to see a rangefinger-style with an EF mount and a full-frame sensor (36x24mm), along with a pancake 45-50mm (one FL in that approximate range) F/1.4 or F/1.8 lens, preferably competively priced with others. :)  Also any chance of seeing a 3rd-party zoom lens (Canon would be too expensive for me) that when mounted on said camera, would allow for going from 24 or 28mm to 800 or 1000 mm or so equivalent when shooting 1080p videos, without any loss in quality?  (Or do DSLRs not allow for on-the-fly cropping when zooming in video beyond the physical limit of the lens, even if the video resolution is lower than the sensor resolution?)

It just doesn't seem to make sense to use a larger sensor and compete with their DSLRs.  Plus it would be large.

I also don't think Canon wants to "conceed" to 4/3s.  The G1X sensor size seems more logical to me.  Physics means the camera would be a little larger than 4/3s and the lenses would be also, but if Canon could keep everything close to 4/3s size ... they would hit a home run.
