Ergonomics is a very important part of modern design. Canon are no longer surrounded by two or three competitors any more. There's almost a dozen sellers competing for your dollar. Now it would seem that they are barely putting any effort in to design something beautiful and simultaneously functional. Remember that their sales will be influenced greatly by people who won't care about technical features which they won't understand. They'll see this camera in the window or in a catalog and they'll buy it for its visible appeal. Be honest: If you came across the "perfect camera" for your personal uses and yet it was as ugly as sin, you'd seriously reconsider it. In this generation, people are more often influenced more by attractive design than the benefits or function of the device. This is the secret to Apple Computers' success. But Canon seem to be cutting corners again. Let's see what else this camera offers when/if announced tomorrow.

Interesting. Internally the feedback that Canon has been getting is that the G1X is generally considered a bit too industrial in terms of design and that has been one of the reasons why some potential buyers have not chosen it.

Probably true. this is why I think the first G1X looked so handsome from the front. Not that it matters the most , but still

But I like my cameras to be discreet . This is why I love the looks of Ricoh GXR, GR and sigma DPM

I am fully aware that , once again , I am part of the minority
