I think that if the optical quality of the 24-240 lens is good, that $899 is not an unreasonable price. If it lists for $899, chances are that it will likely sell for a little less after its been released. Also, rebates always happen during parts of the year.

Both the G5X II and G7X III are priced a little too high given the competition.
Since the higher tier G1X is discounted at $999 right now, I disagree (usually 1299) Seems like the price points are right in line with each other and the competition (LX100, RX100)

The G5X II is better in every parameter than RX100 VI. Except the longer lens on Sony but i prefer the shorter and much brighter on the Canon
Plus Canon has Sony beat on menus which some may not think is a big deal but it all adds up.

the sony 24-240 is CURRENTLY at 840€, discounted from 1100 (according to amazon germany, i don't know the launch price..)
so the canon is actually at a good LAUNCH price at 900

Some sense of the dimensions/mass of Canon's RF 24-240mm can be gleaned from this link (I think):


...when I look at these data (especially while thinking of the images that the M6/18-150mm combo has produced), I'm reminded of how satisfied I've been (overall) with the EOS M family of cameras and lenses...and how Canon's 24-105mm f4 IS lens is, in fact, one of my least-used lenses.

Why? For my particular uses, the 5D MkIII/24-105 set-up is right at the edge of NOT serving as the ideal walk-around vacation/travel tool...because of its mass-and-volume.

Sony's 24-240 lens (from the link) is more than 100g heavier than their 24-105...(both FE)...while only about half a cm longer.

If Canon's 24-240 RF lens is 120g heavier than the Canon 24-105 RF model...that puts it at about 820g...and length comparisons bring the new lens in at an estimated length of a bit more than 11cm.

So the not-yet-available Canon RF 24-240 lens is likely to be a tad heftier and longer than the RF 24-105.

Once everyone outside of USA adds the 15-20% "I don't live in America" tax that all companies impose :mad: , then add on the currently bad exchange rate (for AUD, which is about 10% worse than last year, & 20% worse than 5 years ago), these things will cost an absolute fortune! :cry:
anyway... I am waiting for the new 'M' model to come out. Hopefully before November when I go overseas, and can claim back the 10% GST.

Uhh, the G5XII and G7XIII are going to curb stomp any other point and shoot out there, especially at that price. I don't think people understand what that mic jack has done to the line just yet.

I'm in Melbourne and I feel your pain too. The Australia tax and the AUD suck :-(

I love my 200D but it has its limitations. Depending on the price and my cashflow, I may spring for the new M5 Mk. II (and EF adapter to use my existing lenses) or maybe pick up a used 80D on ebay.

When is that M5 Mk2 being launched?
