Canon is resting on its laurels these days. I like Canon cameras but Sony and Panasonic offer so much more. The Panasonic ZS40/TZ60 offers 30x plus an EVF and GPS - albeit at a higher price than Canon's SX700. The EVF alone is worth the extra cost in my book.

With a 1/2.3" sensor, crammed full of 16 megapixels and a super slow F3.2 - F6.9 lens, unless you are shooting on a very sunny beach, how good can it be? I agree with you, Canon has been resting on it's laurels for years. It looks like even the G1X II may have the same old 2 year old sensor and does not even include an EVF, for $800! Unless it's IQ and lens is really outstanding, they will start to loose market shares to other companies that are much more innovative. When will Canon (and others) stop putting cell phone sensors in cameras
