hiplnsdrftr: Was hoping for a slightly smaller, no flip-screen, no zoom, no gimmicks, with fast prime lens.

However, I do applaud Canon for finally releasing a big sensor compact.

i love the flip-screen! Glad they kept it.

Ulfric M Douglas: Fourthirds : 18 mm × 13.5 mm
New Canon : 18.7mm x 14mm
But Canon's sensor described as "just a fraction smaller than those in Canon's DSLRs", and fourthirds sensor having always been described as a "small sensor" compared to DSLRs.
Hypocrisy abounds in this Canikon world!
So from henceforth fourthirds sensor size will be gloriously elevated to "just a fraction smaller than..." ... yipee. *sarcasm*

Fourthirds:17.3×13.0 mm (imaging area)
Canon APS-C: 22.2x14.8mm (imaging area)
G1X: 18.7 x 14 mm (imaging area or overall sensor size????)
