What size sensor is it? Is it 1"?
I would mind if Canon made a lightweight 24-960mm lens.
It would be handy for travelling

It must be a really small sensor to have a 960 mm equivalent lens in such a compact body.

The camera internals appear to be the same as the SX720 HS, so the sensor would be 1/2.3 inch.

If you compare the specs to its predecessor SX730 HS you'll see that the lens and the FF equivalent FL are the same. So the sensor size is also the same: 1/2.3".
1" sensor is better in IQ performance, but needs bigger lenses and therefore the cam would have been bigger either. In this market (small super zoom) the overall size is a relevant factor. Compare to the G7/9 X with shorter FL.

Not that I'm expecting 4K from a Canon consumer camera (because it's still missing or unusable in their DSLRs) in 2017... but why even bother? If you're going to crank out a new model, you better make sure it at least has better specs than a current smartphone (pretty much all of them can shoot 4K video now)

Stop being stupid Canon!

Yeah ::) 4k on Smartphones is mostly a marketing gag. Look at the poor bitrates and DR and then compare it to a real 4k video device (which currently costs you a fortune). Worlds of difference.

A good high-quality FHD solution is better than a crappy 4k-wannabe device. I think Canon did a good job here.
