"The RX100 V has "just a 1-inch sensor," but it's also truly pocketable." -DPR

I doubt that it would fit in my jeans pocket, and during spring, summer, and fall, I don't wear a jacket.

pxchoi: I'm still bummed that Nikon did not release the 18-50 DL. I shoot wide majority of the time and having a wide angle compact with reasonable IQ would have been stellar. I was hoping that one of the other companies would fill the void but that doesn't appear to be happening...

Nikon cancelled DL, and shipped (a sales flop) KeyMission. I think they got things backwards.

Thomas Kachadurian: I think a better comparison would be the lumix lx100 to the new canon. It's more than 2 years old and wins hands down.

The Rx100 is in its own class because of its size.

It's in a different price category, but the 1" sensor Canon G9 X Mark II is even more compact that the Sony RX100 IV. (It's 24% thinner.)

Not mentioned is that some people don't like Sony colors and/or Sony menu systems.

Potemkin_Photo: Now aim for new milestone and make uncruppled cameras consumers actually want

@Copal Fit: You forgot to mention that Canon DSLRs are used by more professional photographers than any other brand. Even White House Photographer Pete Souza used Canon DSLRs. The current White House Photographer does too.

If consumers don't want Canon cameras, then why have they been #1 in worldwide interchangeable-lens camera market share for 15 consecutive years?

Branko Collin: "The F2.8-5.6 aperture is a tad slow"

Compared to which mythical system?

@HatWearingFool: The LX100 has a smaller sensor, so it's easier to make a lens fast, without the lens becoming too big.

For comparison, the Canon M kit lens is 3.5 to 6.3.

This camera is surprisingly small. In size, it's almost identical to the 1" sensor Canon G5 X. The only difference is that this camera is a little thicker.

Making an APS-C compact is not easy. If Canon made the zoom faster or longer, people would complain that the lens is too big.

In making an APS-C compact that includes a zoom, Canon did something that Fujifilm X100F, Ricoh GR II, and Nikon Coolpix A didn't. They should get credit for trying something different, rather than just following the APS-C compact crowd.

ofquiet: Dammit, knock it off with all the EVFs on everything! Seeing someone make an updated small (pocketable) camera would be so refreshing at this point. We can't be stuck using the Sony RX100 for the rest of eternity. C'mon.

*And yes I know most people just use their cell phones these days, but if you've ever tried to use one in a challenging situation you should realize the very real limits of it. Not everyone is just shooting daylight selfies and lattes.

I think the Canon G9 X Mark II is the most pocketable 1" sensor camera on the market.

I'm not a fan of a high-price / high-margin / low-volume pricing strategy.

I wonder how many units they estimate they can sell at this price. I would think that unit sales would be really, really, low.

Instead of this, I wish Canon would have given their G5 X a simple Mark II /DIGIC7 upgrade.

Rooru S: People are saying that they would prefer a X100F over this camera... I do wonder...is 24mm f/2.8 at the wide end of a lens that zooms all the way to 75mm really that bad compared to 23mm f/2 FIXED FOCAL LENGTH lens that cannot zoom at all for obvious reasons? Or they're just complaining because the lens is f/5.6 at the long end?

All I see is a really compact APS-C camera that has more functionality than a X100-series for a similar price.

@CCD FTW: "More zoom doesn't = more functionality"

The last time I tried to "zoom with my feet" I ended up standing in a lake. :-)

In reply to:

stevo23: One ring to rule them all. It "beats" all previous cameras in this category in image quality - 5DSR, A7RII, D810. But then Nikon has been improving everything steadily unlike Canon who feels it acceptable to slip backward from one version to the next from time to time. (6DII) And notice that DPR is comparing it to the Fuji Medium format camera (GFX) in the test scenes and it compares quite well.

@stevo23:..."unlike Canon who feels it acceptable to slip backward from one version to the next from time to time."

The Nikon 7500 reportedly has some "removed features" compared to their 7200. No camera company is without sin. :-)

"Live view autofocus still clunky for both stills and video shooting" -DPR

So, in that one area, it's not even as good as a US$650 (with lens) Canon SL2.

Ebrahim Saadawi: It's seems like an excellent camera with a very lovely design and feature set but the price, what a shame. This camera will not sell very well, how could the almighty Canon not realize that fact?

And at that price you can simply get an EOS M5 + 15-45mm lens. What would I be losing, some size? that a gain TBH.

Pricing this at the M5 league is just wrong.

In addition, the G1 X III is even priced higher than an M5 + 18-150 kit lens.

The APS-C compact competition, the Fujifilm X100F and Ricoh GR II, don't have any zoom at all. They are fixed-focal-length cameras.
