I’d love the G1X IV to have a slightly wider lens, starting 20mm maybe, but physics won’t permit that in a small body

They can... However, once again, this is a niche market. The days of the DL 18-50 are now gone. You can do that with the M6 mark II (or M100/200) + 11-22 in a small package.


The closest thing otherwise, is a now defunct 1J5 (also Nikon 1") married to a 6.7-13mm.

I think it'd be slick if Canon did this, but, they now have the In-camera panorama mode which can sorta do the same thing. Close enough for most purposes, but not the same obviously.

Sad the DL series didn't make it. The DL 18-50 was unique, the DL 24-85 would've made it's way into my toolkit back then ( and I might still be shooting it) and the DL 24-500 is a true replacement to the G3X, without the bulk or hiccups of the RX10 IV.

Really sad.
