Canon and Nikon do not want to kill their SLR segment thats why they dont build a compact having at least APSC sensor in size and limiting us to the specs of G12 and P7100 in stead.
Just wait for the sample photos, download in original size and make a 100% crop to see how it looks: do the same for a77 as well: the results are bad. Sony is playing this well known higher mpxls means better camera game.
Come on Canon we are waiting for you, we need a compact having APSC sensor, fast and accurate autofocus...
Really tired to see compact cameras having good photo quality like X1 and X100 but not being able to focus accurately and cameras more or less able to focus fast but not having good picture quality.
It's a shame that such a device which seems being equipped with latest technology to deliver so poor images. What a stupid idea to push an APSC sensor to get 24 mpxls. Why not 14 mpxls and better photos?
