With a $2500 price tag it should outclass GH4 and NX1. Good luck with that…..
Stephen McDonald: The "1/1.7-inch" sensor isn't much larger than those in most superzoom models, but yet this one gives only a 300mm reach. They should have either given it more lens power or an even larger sensor size, to have an appeal to different segments of its potential buyers. It also doesn't have 60p video and at a $700. price, I don't think it will sell very well.
The Panasonic FZ1000 costs only $200. more and has a "1-inch" sensor and 400mm of reach, 60p video and 4K.
Beats the G16? Maybe, but not in image quality (if you ask me): https://s3.amazonaws.com/masters.galleries.dpreview.com/2736132.jpg?X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAIWXD4UV3FXMIDQLQ/20150413/us-east-1/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20150413T093610Z&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=58bbbbb72f43da2ab5f159e3535cd4bb8a8b2aa71dbad259b9ba96b4a0f9c205
Nikons response: "Thank you very much for your idea!" means in reality that "Yes, customers have told us this before, but we don't care"
Elaka Farmor: I´m not sure if I´m blind or not, but I was interested to read about the 120fps video quality in 1080p and how to extract photos from 4K videos. Not a word! What is this?
And that's the point. To even find out IF it has 120fps in 1080p I need to search beyond this review…….

120 fps at 1280 x 720……. LX7 did the same back in 2012….
The Squire: "At some point 8K will come for that reason...."
Around about the time Canon launch their first 4k model?
That would be very early to be Canon, but time will tell ;-)
Roman Korcek: "Canon offered a maximum pixel count of ~22MP for seven years before the launch of the EOS 5DS and 5DS R. Why did it take that long to increase resolution?
I wasn't actually aware that it had been seven years!"
This guy really cares about his company and its products.
Who cares about the the same 22mp during seven years when the dynamic range has been improved so much :-D
Probably yes….around 2017.
Franz Weber: No 2000mm zoom, no buy
You saw the future in the P900?! :-)
tom1234567: Yet another 1/2.3'' tiny sensor camera...
You are a genius to find that out. First I was sure it is FF.
I like the brutality of it ;-)
"Nikon and Canon have allowed new and struggling brands to multiply their wares like bacteria in a dirty petri dish."
This proves that Canon (and Nikon) are not greedy, quite the opposite, very humble to the other brands :-D
Very good article indeed!
Canon seems to be as comfortable as Nokia was 10 years ago. Dangerous.
SpeedyGonzalys: I said it before, and say it AGAIN... its a PATHETIC announcement.
Its a way of confirming that óther brands are FAR ahead on them. This "rumor" ehhhemmm started just after the 2nd 1" cam came on the marked the FZ1000.
but instead of a 5 year old stating : WELL MY FATHER IS BIGGER THAN YOURS..they come with : well, we are WORKING on a much bigger larger bla bla bla.
Sure ONE DAY ... they will have something like that.... 2016?? 2017?? COME ON CANON.. give your people what the deserve CLARITY!!
WHEN will it be there (roughly is ok) and WHAT kind of specs.. like Mariov said WHAT apertures, speed, AF system etc etc.
Ergo, i stay with my months ago statement ... P A T H E T I C
Canon has probably not come far with the product, why else "forget" to mention the aperture range??
If I want half speed slow-motion in 1080p I guess 15fps will do the trick. Thank you Canon.
How many more years do we have to wait for 1080p 60/50fps?
I need an EVF in stereo for both eyes or else I´m not capable of taking any photos at all.
This is great improvements compared to XQ1! Wow!
