"Autofocus with the 18-140mm is speedy and accurate enough for most purposes."

"Accurate enough for most purposes" does really inspire confidence. That also implies that you are unlikely to get the most of your lens. The PDAF will only be good enough if you don't look closely...

That is one thing that really keep me some current SLR. These PDAF sensors are simply not enough to keep out with high resolution main sensor. If I am not shooting action, I pick CDAF over PDAF any day.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (531 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eigenmeat: 12.8MP at 2014 is a bit of let down at 2014 to be honest. Especially with a sensor this large and lens this fast(less diffraction prone). Sony can squeeze fully usable 20MP 1'' sensor on its RX100/RX10 series (especially the RX10). No reason Cannon cannot squeeze a good 16-18MP on a 1.5'' sensor.

To NowHearThis:
I fully agree with you that today's main stream diplay media can rarely show more than 8MP. Peronsally, I don't print much of my image. For me, much of the fun is to zoom into images to discover all the little details you missed on a busy trip! For that, you need all the MP count you can get.

To R Butler:

Yup, it seems Canon completely recycled the old sensor from G1X M1. Now the lens has a smaller image circle, so we get multi-aspect shooting. The down side, we went from 14.1 MP to 13MP.

On Tamron develops 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 superzoom for APS-C SLRs news story (211 comments in total)

We now just a body with EVF/CDAF to attach this onto(I don't shoot action)... PDAF suck for accuracy, and sucks even more with a superzoom lens. When properly focused, this super lens can be quite sharp.

Sony/Samsung can make a cell phone do this. Yet, for example, a $1300 Sony RX10 cannot it. It just shows how much manufacturer intentionally cripple their camera line to create "product tiers".

racketman: Can't help thinking there is a market for a 100D sized camera with a RX100 sized sensor and a fixed superzoom lens, just not sure how long that zoom could be, 24-600?

What you said is without reason. A 24-600mm with 1'' sensor is more than enough to satisfy the needs of 75%+ of the enthusiast sector as walk around cam. To complete mix, all you need is a cheap mirrorless with a portrait lens.

In reply to:

Eigenmeat: 8X zoom is barely a superzoom these days. Also, I can pick up a APS-C D3200/Ti5+ 18-2XX zoom for about 800$.

A APS-C cam with a slow 18-2XX lens will STILL have more DOF control than this. The RX10 is only F7.6 FF eqv when it comes to DOV as pointed out by DPR.

RX10 is a very nice cam for sure. I am just pointing out there are potential better price/ratio options.

Why are you in the COMMENTS section if all you want to hear are praises? Go read the press release for those.

I doubt the body only will be $800. That lens retails at 600 brand new. They have to a atleast give you SOME discount when buying kit right? I am guess body only will be ~$1000.
