Does Canon's stand acknowledge the existence of their EOS M line? In the USA, their last EOS M anouncement was in July 2012.
Many/most people who buy interchangeable lens cameras never go beyond the kit lens. Large-sensor compacts will push MILC into an even smaller niche.
This is a larger sensor version of the Canon S120, which also doesn't have a viewfinder or hot shoe. I don't see anything wrong with that.
If Nikon would have made a camera like the RX100/G7X, I suspect that it would have sold a lot better than their Nikon 1 series.
The JPEGs should be better than Sony. Sony is known for overly aggressive noise reduction.
astigmate: As a D700 owner, I feel...hum kinda betrayed by Nikon. So, this entry level, crippled camera is supposed to be the D700 successor ?! feel like an FF D5300 !! I'm tired of waiting for them. I'll keep my D700 until it dies and will look into fuji or sony stuff now on.
Oh, btw, the Sony Full-Frame A7 (24mpx also) cost HALF the price asked for the D750 and it has 1/8000s shutter, focus peaking, nice EVF etc
For whatever it's worth, Thom Hogan says "it’s really a fixed D600/D610".
Andrew Butterfield: I can sort of understand the conclusion here, since it took me a week or two to get my E-M10 set up to how I liked using it. But now it is, I'm extremely happy. Everything is just how I want it. Okay, so I spent nearly two hours trying to find something in the menu once, but you get over these things. And so will the average user. If you're the sort that likes setting things, you will be able to figure out even how to set up an Olympus camera.

The marketplace was crying out for pulsing green LEDs on a camera's grip. Well done Ricoh-Pentax. :-)
First impressions followed by second thoughts. :-)
If you want a red dot, wait for the Chinese-counterfeit version of this camera. :-)
Wow, those mirrorless cameras sure are compact. :-)
At least in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. Why buy a Samsung, when you can buy a camera from a Real Camera Company?
It's too bad that it comes with a particularly bad kit lens. Photozone writes "the Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS broke a couple of records but unfortunately not in the positive sense. Its uncorrected distortion and vignetting figures are nothing short of insane."
I selfishly miss John the most. So many great songs never written and recorded, because of his murder. He was always my favorite Beatle.
Artpt: I'd love to see the detailed filings to the IRS.....this company has a Kleenex brand association within their industry....and there is plenty of room to innovate...
Does anyone care to share other links to their filings?
Thanks to all....

Some camera company should buy the GoPro brand name.
Wallace Ross: Not sure why I bother, the Q doesn't need me to defend it but it's the most fun digital camera I own and if some people don't get it then what ever.
Taking photos is supposed to be oh-so-serious. A fun camera just won't do. :-)
Among other cameras, the Canon G16 and S120 compacts also have 1/1.7-inch sensors, so I don't see anything wrong with the Q concept.
Regarding the compact camera sector:
"Canon cut its annual sales forecast for compact digital cameras to 9.5 million units from the previous target of 10.5 million units." -Bloomberg
Compact camera sales are sharply down, but millions of them are still sold. (I used Canon's numbers, because I don't know Sony's numbers.)
brownie314: wow - exciting times for Canon. Another DOA product. Good work.
LOL! Gear Geeks can't cope with the reality that cameras like this sell well.
