The only camera that Canon should respond to is Sony's interesting (but limited) new camera called the RX1. This is a Full Frame sensor with a fixed 35mm lens. At $3000, this thing won't dent anyone's market but the yuppies and hipsters that want an expensive camera will buy one... though they won't appreciate the features (or lack of) on the camera. 35mm pictures can get boring if your albums are full of this particular focal length and nothing else.

The RX1 is interesting but I'm not sure Canon would have any real desire to produce such a niche camera. Not at that price anyway.

I take your point about the 35mm focal length possibly getting a bit boring.  However for someone who likes that focal length and can really work with it (not me I hasten to add!) the actual content of the image rather than just a variety of shots at different focal lengths could be more important.

I suspect there are many who if you took their bag of exotic lenses away and just left them with one lens only, would produce better photographs - eventually.
