Looks to be a very capable camera. However, if the crop is 1.92 that would make 24mm a little long for a all purpose lens. Also, wouldn't a 1.92 crop imply a slightly larger sensor?

24-120mm is the FF equivalent, so it's a pretty nice all around focal length. same wide as the 12-50 or 12-35, but more zoom.

It turns out from the specs that the Canon has a 1.5" sensor according to the specs, which is slightly larger yet, about 1.85x. It has a multi aspect sensor though, which lets you shoot in 4:3, 3:2, etc, and that will affect the crop slightly.
