No Hotshoe? No viewfinder? I have the XZ1 and would never consider this Sony as an option. I use the excellent viewfinder for the XZ-1 most of the time. Or for fun I'll attach the XZ-1 to my full size flash (not the other way around) and get great bounce flash portraits. The lens on this sony is also very slow at the long end. I'm sure the image quality is good but I would find this camera too limiting. Of course Sony may have a better equipped model in the works.

Prognathous: It's amusing that dpreview considered Live View to be "a solution looking for a problem" when they first encountered it in a DSLR - the Olympus E330. Now they consider it to the "The missing feature". How things have changed.

DPReviews coment on the E330 was a supreme lack of insight. However I think it's about time we forgave them and let it go. Of course if they acknowledged it I guess it would make it easier for some to do that. We all make mistakes.

It makes the OMD em-5 look really good

I think that picture of the whole stable of 4/3 lenses with the Om-D made the nex system seem pretty sparce. This announcement is I think a 'don't jump ship they are coming' type of announcement.

Back in the late 80's and 90's people got away from slr's and went for 35mm all in one cameras with a zoom range similar to this canon. Of course they were even smaller than this G1x which I guess is a drawback to digital. I don't think it will be long before this style of camera becomes the quality camera for your average family, traveller etc. Most people do not want to bother with changing lenses. If it has good video then I think it will sell very well.

I don't know if she has little hands but the Xpro-1 looks rather massive.

amblepath: So canon built a fixed lens 4/3 camera before Olympus or Panasonic. That's interesting.

it' not just the aspect ratio it is almost identicl in size to 4/3 sensor.
