Canon has yet to announce: APS-C please!
In reply to akjos, Sep 22, 2011

I hope in the interest of choice that Canon is taking notes on the Nikon release and when it does release its mirrorless system will keep a full APS-C (1.6x for Canon) sensor size.

The Nikon 1 sensor is just too small, imho. It seems a poor design choice. And the name: "Nikon 1" -- for a second tier product placed below the dslr line? Nikon is known for some zippy marketing names: coolscan (I always liked that one), D-lighting (nice). But "Nikon 1"? errfh. Maybe something like the "Nikon Nano" -- or "NanoNikon System" -- sweet.

The door is wide open for Canon to adopt the other end of this mirrorless niche -- compact mirrorless cameras with full APS-C sensors. It would have the largest sensor size of the class. It would use small lenses that take advantage of no throw to clear the mirror... an adapter to use ef/ and ef-s lenses, with all lenses at their now customary APS-C efl's.
