Yes, would be really nice if the G1x2 had an 'over-sized' multi-aspect ratio sensor like the LX7, but I'd be quite surprised if that's the case.

Can you otherwise explain why Canon has made the lens coverage very slightly smaller if not to add a multi-aspect-ratio feature?

Many people complained about the 4:3 aspect ratio of the G1 X,

Really ? for me this is the MAIN reason why I may buy this Canon

Luckily for you, the camera will have both 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratios using the full lens coverage (see the other thread for proof – someone posted a link to a photo of the brochure).

and recently the trend has been towards 3:2 (Sony RX100, Ricoh GR, etc.), so I think the various signs all point towards at least adding a 3:2 aspect ratio.

I think you are mixing things here. All APS cameras ( incuding the Ricoh GR) have a NATIVE 3;2 ratio

what is infuriating though in cameras without OVF is the trend towards 3;2 ratio ONLY (sony RXs, sony AR, sigma DP)

I think for cameras with EVF or LCD only there is NO VALID reason to offer several different ratios

Then you didn’t understand my explanation of the advantage of multiple aspect ratios. The purpose is to get the best image quality for a given camera size, in all aspect ratios. But Panasonic wasn’t able to make people understand that over several generations of LX cameras, and I doubt Canon will be able to either.
