G15 Coming Soon...

<< < (2/3) > >>

powershot2012:
Maybe the case, but from what we have seen so far, neither the G15 or S110 look exciting as the RX100.

Why isn't Canon offering more with a larger sensor?  Though that is only part of it.  If they haven't corrected the performance seen recently in the G1X, S100, and G12, then no spec will make up for it.

Now the question is when is the official announcement?

14 bad luck in China? Maybe you mean 4?

Well I know that 4 and 9 are unlucky in Japan so maybe the person I quoted got it wrong?

It all depends what you are looking for in a camera, so far the specs we have seen for the G15 have only been rumours, nothing official. We will only know tomorrow for certain what the camera will actually look like and what the specs will really be. Then it will be a matter of putting it to the test before making any comments on the relative merits of one against the other. We assume there will be an official announcement tomorrow because it will be the first day of Photokina but nothing is certain 'until the fat lady sings'! :)

Unless Canon plans to mess up with its line-up, I doubt the G15 will be better than the G1X.
 
And the RX100 - all in all - is a more attactive camera than the G1X imho. The Sony is smaller, more classy, features an excellent lens, and there's a lot more tech in it.  Canon's biggest advantage - sensor size - is effectively countered by RX100's brighter lens.

Considering that the RX100 is also cheaper... easy win for Sony, as far as I am concerned.

but we are not comparing the G1X with anything here, we were discussing the G15 rumours. The G1X was an anomaly the X indicating it was an eXperiment. Now there's an EOS M the G1X has no place between the G15 (whatever it might eventually turn out to be) and the EOS M.

Sure the RX100 gets rave reviews but it has a short zoom and no vari angle screen apart from being pricey for what it is. If the new G15 doesn't have a vari-angled screen the Nikon P7700 might be a better bet once it's sensor and lens have been tested.

One more day of nail biting.

What I meant is that Sony RX series is redefining the concept of compact camera, and in a much more successful way than Sigma DP2 Merrill did. I strongly doubt that the G15 will do the same. Canon looks extremely conservative nowadays, and as such I expect that the G15 will stay below the G1X.

The RX100 is pricey in absolute terms, but a real bargain in relative terms.
