Unfortunately this is typical of Canon interviews - lots of safe and evasive corporate double-speak with a very low signal-to-noise ratio. I've seen clearer answers given in the spin room after a presidential debate :) Sigma and Fuji executives are a lot more forthcoming - they actually share information that can't already be found in a marketing brochure.
Lance W: Panasonic LX100 dimensions: 115 x 66 x 55 mm (4.53 x 2.6 x 2.17″).Nikon DL18-50 dimensions. 106 x 63 x 58 mm (4.17 x 2.48 x 2.28″).Very similar weight. But the LX100 has a built-in viewfinder, a bigger sensor, and a faster lens. But the LX100 was too large? I really don't understand.
@Tonkotsu, how does the DL's wider lens make the camera not-too-large anymore vs the LX100?
"The Panasonic LX100 was really the only choice, but it's considerably larger than what I was looking for...Then, lo and behold, Nikon came running into the market with three new 1" cameras (known as the DLs), which finally filled in that last gap. The camera that did so is the DL18-50 which, as its name implies, has an 18-50mm equivalent lens - easily the widest in this class"
They're close in size - the LX100 is actually smaller where it counts most, in depth. Neither fits in a pocket so in practice they might as well be identical in size because both will require a larger home (purse, camera bag).

I wonder if the black bears at Yosemite get together once a year to watch a herd of humans mate with strange, three-legged birds with very large beaks.
Horshack: Very savvy move on Huawei. They make great phones but many don't know they exist. Attaching their brand to Leica gives them instant name recognition without having to spend millions of dollars in advertising.
@dcshooter, Huawei can't compete when it comes to spyware:
Interestingness: "...one of the longest lines can be found Canon's booth. This year, Canon's EOS 80D and EOS-1D X Mark II were in huge demand from both press and public attendees alike..."
Oh oh, don't let the Sony kool-aid crew read that. How can that be, I mean, the historically class following DR of Canon sensors, the high price and size of the 1Dx. And how can the 80D be popular, like seriously, it doesn't even have 4K! Stupid stupid attendee's and press.
It's all based on product release cycles/schedules. Nikon's booth at CES this year (January) was always packed (D5/D500) while Canon's was a ghost town. Not surprised Canon's would be packed at CP+ for the 1DXII.
Or you live in the USA rather than China.

JakeB: Leica want to attach their name to a low-rent phone maker like Huawei?
What next? Leica fries at McDonalds?
Huawei makes Google's Nexus 6P, one of the highest rated Android phones currently available.
Not sure if it's the camera angle but the 70-200 f/2.8 in the last tab (#13) of the article looks remarkably small.
Horshack: They're redefining what a pocket camera is, as in not being able to actually fit into your pocket :) They look even bigger than the dimensions would indicate, esp the protruding lens stub on the 18-50mm.
I can fit an RX100IV in my skinny jeans pocket. It's pretty snug but not uncomfortable.

Horshack: For those unfamiliar with what the Foveon is capable of, here is a full-sized sample from my DP2M. The shooting envelop is rather narrow in terms of color temperature and ISO but as a portable landscape camera it's extremely impressive.
@mgrum, as an added bonus you'll get bayer interpolation artifacts as well.

DualSystemGuy: A lot of the people dismissing the camera as "more of the same" or "just buy the RX100" seem to be missing the autofocus specification in particular. It's the only retractable lens P&S camera on the market at the moment with proper ultra-high-end AF with phase detection. Having the responsiveness and AF capabilities of the 1-series is a big deal, and something nobody else even comes close to. That is tremendously valuable.
The 18-50 option and compatibility with Nikon speedlights is also a huge plus.
The J5 with the 10-30 is retractable and if size is the criteria is just as much a P&S as these DL models (smaller in fact in some dimensions).
