The lens cover is surprising to me, I'm not sure how this will effect filters and/or a lens hood. The missing front scroll wheel is also a surprise, but perhaps the knurled lens base has an effect. I'm not so sure how this will affect the camera as a whole. No doubt Dp and Imaging Resource have one to play with and will put up first impressions within a few days after the proper announcement. All in all it looks useable to me, and if it has Canon flash control it would be a bonus. I am betting that with an EVF it will not be cheap.

Well, I still remember the large number of people (some reviewers included) that complained about the G1X lens cap, and how it was easy to loose it... can´t please everybody, I suppose...

Personally, with present day technology, the add on EVF on top of the cameras should not be a necessity any longer; Canon could have chosen a similar approach to Panasonic's GX7, by placing the EVF in the left hand side of the camera. It would have make the camera more expensive, but...
