Hello all :)

I am looking at getting a compact bridge camera with a bit of a zoom on it and like the look of the G3X. I read some place that there may be an announcement in Feb (this month) about a possible G3X Mark II and a hope of it containing an APS-C sensor.

I would like to know your thoughts on how likely this is?

Thank you for any info/insight.

Cheers

Jamie

I think it is overpriced, does not sell well, and not a priority for Canon to update.

I also think that I'll buy a Panasonic FZ1000 when I really need a backup to my 100-400.

I love my G3 X and it's my most frequently used camera apart from my phone. (And I have a 5D4 with full set of lenses, etc.) I'm eagerly looking forward to a new superzoom bridge offering from Canon, but I'm also not optimistic. An update to the Sony RX10 is likely in my future given this state of affairs.

It looks like there is a version 2 of the FZ1000 about to come out..... keep your eyes open for great deals!

Hmm wonder if the G5 2 is the G3x 2 I was hoping for rumoured for this month. Still got things crossed in case
