NEW "G" or "S" Series - Which are you most looking forward to?
Jul 5, 2011

Which are you most looking forward to... "G" or "S" Series?

For as long as the G-series has existed, it has changed very little while the competition and technology has advanced. Seems Canon put the G-series into a cycle of very little change over the course of each new model, and in some ways regressed over time (now going on 11 years...hard to believe):

Since the introduction, what has changed the most? The MPs and LCD screen size.

The "S" series which has the same sensor size and in a much smaller package, actually has a faster lens than the "G" series. Isn't that backwards?

So is the "G" series just slowly drifting into the sunset or any chance Canon will bring it back to life? With the P7000 now, the days of minor tweaks are not enough for the "G" series.

Has the "S" series taken over the roll of the "G" series? Which are you most looking forward to...the new "G" or "S" Series?
