typo on the PowerShot G1X... (corrected)
In reply to Sdaniella, Nov 16, 2012

PowerShot G1X ['digicam P&S' as reference]:
1.5" Sensor Digicam LENS RESTRICTION: 15.1-60.4mm f2.8-5.8 (28-112mm f5.2-10.8)
1.5" Sensor Digicam LENS RESTRICTION: 15.1-59.3mm f2.8-5.6 (28-110mm f5.2-10.4)
1.5" Sensor Digicam LENS RESTRICTION: 15.1-45.8mm f2.8-5.6 (28-85mm f5.2-10.4)
1.5" Sensor Digicam LENS RESTRICTION:
15.1-27.0mm f2.8-4.5 (28-50mm f5.2-9.0)[woops]
1.5" Sensor Digicam LENS RESTRICTION: 15.1-18.9mm f2.8-3.5 (28-35mm f5.2-7.0)[woops]

vs

m43/43d, closest LENS ALTERNATIVE: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm f7.0-11.2)... gee, a slower lens?
43d, closest LENS ALTERNATIVE: 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 (28-108mm f5.6-7.0)... gee, just the lens is barely faster only on the tele end, but still slower on the wide end, and it is almost as heavy [i also forgot about the wt of 43d-to-m43 adapter if needed] as an entire digicam... whew... did it improve by much for m43? yeah... it got smaller AND SLOWER (on the wide end, when the OPPOSITE should have been true)...

... when a digicam is offered with this much... one expects a lot more (not just a little, nor barely better), from a system with flexible lens options such as the m43 purports to do... even if the sensor clearly cannot.
