f1.8 to 2.8 wow that's nice. What about sensor size?

I plan to replace my s100 with the new Canon EOS-Mirrorless.

F1,8-F2,8 is great, but it's sad to see they keep the same focal lengh

6,1-30,5mm means keep 28-140mmmm
I would have strongly preferred a start at 24mm

I don't think it will be missing.  I am thinking it will have a touchscreen.

Hmph, a CR 0.5? How imminent? How good is the source?

Probably to be announced at the show for availability in November  :(
I want one and I want it now! Not some vague time in the future,
same size sensor but possibly CMOS, surely wont be priced higher than the G1X?

I just hope it will up the ante by bringing in 5+ FPS.  P7700 has 8.

5x zoom lens with an aperture range of f/1.8-2.8? Looks good.

But this release is kind of late to the already crowded market, isn't it? We now have Panasonic LX7 with a f/1.4-2.3 4x zoom, Olympus XZ-1 with a f/1.8-2.5 4x zoom and Fujifilm X10 with a f/2-2.8 4x zoom. Then, there's also the Sony RX100 with its slow lens but big sensor.

Ultimately, in real use, I suspect all the above cameras will have rather similar image quality (the big sensor advantage of the RX100 is offset by its slow lens). And Canon will be the overall loser 'cos they still suffer from slow contrast AF algorithm. Sigh...

I guess that's why Canon's have the slowest FPS. :( but if they can do at least 5FPS, it's good enough for a P&S.

Where's the dials?!?..  :o
I hope it didn't get the touchscreen treatment.   ???

I like the touchscreen interface as an option, but agree that it's no substitute for good tactile controls.

Which this camera appears to have in spades:

 - (obviously) a front control dial under your shooting finger
 - (probably) a rear control dial under your thumb
 - (hopefully) a programmable ring around the lens like the S series

Let's see what she looks like at ISO1600...

P&S means "Point & Shoot", not "Point & Spray"  ;D. However, it would be very nice if Canon made it as fast as the competition.
According to the picture - some dials are missing ... same old crappy OVF ... and the Vari-angle LCD is gone too :(. I'm not sure if I'd buy this one over G12 or G11. Faster lens is fine, but, for me, it never was a priority in G series (sharpness and other optical qualities are more important). I just hope that the RAW image format is still there.
FF + primes !

Nothing to rave about. Canon should have equipped the G1X with a faster lens (yes, I know there's a size problem). When it comes to small sensor cams DOF to me is not that much important. Let's hope AF speed and frame rate will have been improved upon.

... I treat my photography equipment like a fragile glass.

I bought a 1D X so I could treat it like the tool that it is.   ;)
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Well, good for you.  But still, extra care won't hurt.  Love your tools and they will love you back.
