Re: Canon releases PowerShot G12 premium compact

I think they'd have to give up some of the zoom range to get back the f/2.0 that the G6 had at the wide end.

More people seem to care about reach now then the wider aperature, and as a traveler who likes to shoot light, I'm in that camp.

I think a wide open aperature is valuable, but as high ISO shooting get cleaner and cleaner, it's probably less of an necessity.

Still didn't give us the f2.0 lens back. Sure would expand that high ISO function.

Canon is being outpaced by Panasonic and Olympus in the pro-worthy rangefinder-ish compacts market, even before their products hit the shelves.
