Jeff Seltzer: I understand the idea of a very expensive, niche product/brand that's supposed to appeal to a small audience that truly can appreciate the expertise and craftsmanship and is willing to pay for the opportunity. I guess you can say that's the goal for any luxury brand. But, you expect those products/brands to truly set the bar and lead the way in terms of innovation. Is that we have in this case?

You mean in 1896 when Louis Vuitton started putting their logo all over them?

Something I will never be in the market for but good luck to them and hope they work well for whoever may be interested.

I hope Canon starts shopping there.

It's really nice that the same camera is offered with and without the EVF. I love a view finder, others (especially younger photographers) seem to think it's the worst idea ever (I don't get that). In any case I would love to see this become a trend.

Nice to see an exceptionally well done sample gallery.

Homage? Seems the correct word should be parody.

As a Canon user all I can say is, thanks for the competition Samsung. I hope you keep it up. This can only turn up the heat.

2eyesee: Can someone please explain to me why people find these retro designs appealing? Am I just not 'old school' enough (I got into photography about 15 years ago)?

I love the functionality of being able to quickly adjust major parameters. The aperture should just always (except on super simple or compact camera be on the lens, it's intuitive.

Aur: I think it's also weird he suggests ppl don't like small cameras outside of Japan.

The fact that 40mm and now 24mm Canon pancake lens are doing so well, is because they're super lightweigt, good quality they fit in your pocket, and they're fun.

People LOVE those things, because of their size.

I guess with smaller lenses a smaller camera is easier to handle as well. I also like retro controls, ISO, exposure shutter and aperture but Canon seem dead set against the Fuji X style controls.

That is my feeling I like larger cameras for the ergonomics but wish the lenses could be smaller or at least lighter.

It's not a camera for me but it would be fun to play with. Some clever people will get some cool shots out of it.

Perv camera.

adhemar: Oh my, oh my, a compact 24-600mm and a 1" sensor. And quite bright, I am sure. The laws of physics have stopped applying.

But only for fixed lens cameras. Isn't that weird?

Only one lens mas to be mapped rather than account for all lenses that would fit that camera. Maybe I am wrong, but that seems easier.

Not quite the camera for me. Although this combined with a G7x and an SLR, would make a nice trio, depending on the need. I do hope the G17 is somewhere between this and the G7x.

With a fixed lens they can adjust for the optical aberrations with software more easily.

Leaving a viewfinder off shows Canon is not serious. A point and shoot without viewfinder is fine, to save cost and size. No ILC will ever be truly small especially when carrying an alternate lens or external flash. Why not make it a tiny bit larger and include an EVF?

Lack of a view finder is serious error. There are some great enthusiast grade all in one cameras out there with no view finder. No ILC is ever going to be super small or pocketable especially if you carry an alternate lens. Canon should have made the camera a tiny bit larger and added EVF.

In reply to:

Stollen1234: Is this a new trend? It looks like Canon is producing new cameras for specific kind of photography. Canon 7D II for wildlife birding and sports...the new 5DS for studio and landscape....

Is this really a good idea?

I think so.
