There is no doubt that the new Canon lens is better optically than its predecessor or the sigma lens. As to whether the difference will be significant to 99% of the people who use a 35mm lens... Of course NOT! But this is irrelevant. It is aimed at those who care about getting the sharpest results at any aperture.
Introducing the hunchback of Cupertino...
sdh: please please tell me this is a joke. Because as a joke it's fairly creative.
No it's not... it is ART!
A wonderful way to show how sad and utterly pointless selfies are...
Art at ist best.... but lost on most people.
Dames01: I don't understand all the winging from the people in the US about the camera not being available there.
Want the camera? buy it online...!
@cgarrard well thank you very much for providing such an enlightening comment! I am humbled by such wisdom.
StevenE: What a con job Canon did on us in North America. Offer nice little lenses, and withhold a decent camera to use them. I bought the lenses ONLY thinking there was a decent camera body coming some day. I'll never trust Canon like that again. Now I'm stuck with one of the worst camera bodies I have ever used if I want to make use of those lenses.Bad Taste In mouth ... must reach for SONY
And Sony is famous for the range of lenses they have... ;-)
No risk no fun :-)

samfan: This selfie craze still isn't over? Geez.
Need a screen that points downwards? just turn the camera upside down to take shots above you...
D1N0: Hopefully no critters or vermin were harmed during the shooting of these great pics.
"Another handy feature not often found on cameras in this price range is the ability to control the camera from your Mac or PC. You can adjust the majority of camera functions from your computer, though the one thing that's not available is a live view of whatever you're about to photograph."
What is the point of being able to control the camera if you cannot see from the remote what the is in the camera FOV...?
Looking forward to testing this. I have been waiting for a compact travel zoom to complete my EOS M system.
I wonder how many people would actually notice that these photos were taken with an iPhone
and some people say that Apple products are overpriced...
Wonderful work! Anyone who has tried macro photography of insects will appreciate the amount of patience involved in achieving such exceptional images...
le_alain: Where is the finder ?
The finder is in the same place as the one in the RX100 :-)
wootpile: Apart from faster lens / dof difference... the GM1 with kit lens runs circles around it in studio IQ scene. Smaller sensor, more pixels, much smaller package, same price... go figure.
Yeah right... except the GM1 kit lens only goes up to 64mm!
This camera will allow all those owners of Leica M lenses to use them without having to buy an 'M' body....
Portrait at ISO 3200 looks fantastic. Really excellent natural colours! Can't wait to get my hands on the G1X... :-)
Although I do not find the images particularly moving or inspiring, I am glad that DPR also shares such links as it is sometimes worth pausing and remember that what matters is capturing scenes that we consider extraordinary and the gear is after all just a means to that end.
