(unknown member): Thank goodness Canon had the good sense to stick with the G1 X and go with a greatly improved Mark II. This V3 has some good specs, but being an ILC it is putting a little 1" sensor up against bigger sensors in all other ILCs, the G1 X II, the 1" sensor in the RX100 II, etc. In other words, it has put itself in a position that has better alternatives on both sides.
If they wanted to go ILC, they shouldn't have been so conservative as to use a 1" sensor. If they had to use a 1" sensor, they should have put it in a large sensor compact. Just like the M this camera is useful, but is designed to indicate that Nikon doesn't really take the market seriously.....they choose to compete on their own terms rather than jump right in the middle of all ILCs. I don't think they need to dive right in personally because the ILC segment has had years to gain popularity and still sputters along.

I also made a comment to that post as well Xentinus. :)

Their own EOS M become their own super enemy.

But at the same time they achieved something, that has so much potential; smaller dslr, 100D. They should concentrate on that.

End of the day, I am a photo enthusiasts & a glad, satisfied Olympus user.

PS: I so wish to own a D800E from Nikon and a Canon cinema camera body and those 15.000 $ cine lenses!!!! BUt... I am in aquaculture / fish processing business. Photography is my hobby and Olympus gets that.

Eos M burned a lot from canon's bank account. :) the giant slr makers just could not get it.

Pentax was doing something radical, yet usefull for their mirrorles cam, but it was lacking pocketablility,

stop trying Nikon. Make D800 for 1000$ ( body only) make us and your cash flow happy :)

stratplaya: Who manufactures the sensor? I didn't find that in the release.

Sony, panasonic, kodak... Who cares!

its the industrial realities of today. Almost all diesel car has Bosch injectors, Prelli or Michelin tyres...etc.

But the formula made by the Hasselblad. Its a proper stuf after all woody, ugly sony-ness...

I kinda feel bad; Why did I buy E-PM1 + Sigma 30mm+ 40-150mm for 400€, just autmn.

This gray version looks very cool. Better specs than Micro43... etc etc. Wondering about its video, would be getting warm as previous NEX cams ?

On CP+ 2014: Canon stand report article (55 comments in total)

G 1 x II would be a great underwater cam. You got all you need lenses on your APS-C camera.

But, would it work that good ? Personally, my 1/2.3 sensored recyled window glass lensed sony cam takes underwater videos far better than my 1/1.7 sensored Razor sharp M.Zuiko lensed XZ-1 olympus.

Well image quality is better than Sony. But thast small sony was relatively easier to use. Wondering this guy.

In reply to:

Marty4650: People buy fixed focal length fixed lens compacts for simplicity and convenience. There is nothing simple or convenient about hauling around tele-converters because you really wanted an ILC or a zoom lens.

An X100s variant with a zoom lens would have made much more sense. And if it had a modest zoom range.... like 1.5X or 2.0X, then it could still be pretty small.

If canon would achieve fast focusing (As fast as Micro43 let´s say) clear shots at hand held 1/4 seconds or even slower...

That would be a very big and strong nail to fuji,leica,nikon,ricoh songle lens/aps-c sensor cam.s coffin.

Ben O Connor: In my opinion;

- If you pay for a 1" sensor P&S, thanks to its optics. it is WASTE OF MONEY (excluding Sony Superzoom)
- If you pay for a 1" sensor ILC cam, it is WASTE OF MORE MONEY.
- If you pay for a APS-C sensor with stabile optics it is WASTE OF RESOURCES (that might exclude new canon G 1 X II, I don´t know yet!)
- If you pay for a full frame sensor camera, and your model is a mirrorless one, with stabile optics or inter-changable lens you* are A FILTY RICH DUDE !

And damn !! It would be good to have smilar money and taste as you have.

(*) You are not a pro, are you?
Pro; Person, who earns money from his photographic work.

As you see, a WASTE OF RESOURCES camera , is trying to excuse from its buyes by releasing converters.

Dude, why did not you buy its better version even more affordable ? (The fuji´s interchagable lens family) Don´t try to give me a speach of "But its pocketable and .... come on dude ;) someone put this beautifull lens in to a single lens jail, and you paid for it!!
