Re: What I look forward to in the Canon G2X:

Well I have read all the above, and have to agree with some and not others. Now I have looked and tested the G1X a lot(downloads and actual usage), it's IQ is sgreat, it's shape is about right, I can live with the lens quite easily (faster would be nice but optical engineering has limits and retain the size) and it's ISO performance is exemplary. The optical viewfinder is very off putting and the focusing speed is not good but useable. Canon missed a great chance here with both the G1X and the EOS M. Other makers have mastered the mirrorless focusing to a much higher degree and also put in splendid EVFs, so I am guessing there are some patents to be avoided or design ethics to be considered. I use a Canon 600D and various lens and would like a lighter set up and have seriously considered the G1X, but I am hanging back to see just what Canon intend to do for a G2X, that is if they do.

For my needs I would like the G2X to have much much faster focusing, a decent EVF, manual zooming using the front ring and a few more frames per second. If it were possible a faster lens but no worries, it has good high ISO. So come on Canon, you have the ability, the know how and the customers ready and waiting, what's your problem.
