Marty4650: I wonder if Nikon and Canon are paying attention?

They are listening only what top pros have to say. They are not interested in vox populy, but there is the market... And it is the key to Fuji`s success.

SONY FF E cameras now need a quality prime in a 18-20mm range... But not as heavy and bulky as 1.4/35mm is. F 2.8 or even 3.5 should be enough for me.

sbansban: For me the biggest thing that could make or break this camera would be how fast this lens is (and of course, the quality of the lens - sharpness being my most important criterion aside from the other usual suspects like distortion, CA and so on). As many have speculated, if it's F2.8-F5.6, it's not very promising. But despite the lack of an EVF, given it's 1" sensor and relatively compact size, G3X would still have its niche, especially if the price is right.

Almost every camera has it`s niche, but is it`s niche large as it is aimed to?

Mike FL: OK, this Canon G3X has no build in EVF for sure.

I like to know if Canon G3X-MK2 will have a pop-up EVF as seem from SONY RX100-MK3.

Or we will waiting for G3X-MK3?

We can wait...

MkII will lose it`s option for external EVF, MkIII will have shorter lens, and if there is an MkIV, it will be even more striped. That is the Canon way...

Link | Posted on Feb 13, 2015 at 19:33 UTC

They`ll need to put an EVF in a MkIV body, make compact and good 10mm WA, 40mm Macro, 65mm, and some other primes if they want to convince me about their "serious intentions".

Rod McD: A 1" sensor, an add-on EVF and a super-zoom??? This is a different line of camera from the G1X's. I'm still using the original 1.5" sensor G1X with its crappy OVF, slow between shot times and great IQ (at modest ISOs). I'll upgrade it one of these years with a suitable replacement. ATM, the LX100 would be leading the race. However, a BUILT-IN high grade EVF is an absolute requirement. I simply don't want an expensive, external, add-on EVF that blocks the flash shoe in use and gets left at home, lost or whatever. An egregiously bad idea. Please give us a complete camera.

If it is a necessary trade of to save size (and price), than built-in EVF and no built-in flash. EVF would be used most of the time, not the flash.

LiSkynden: Looking at that one pic it looks like it has a "selfie" LCD YAY!!!

Great for selfies at 600mm!!! ;)
But there is tiltable LCD, I am quite positive.

mcshan: I am not a superzoom guy. I would take the G1X I and II over this any day. I know this is a different series and would guess research shows there is a target audience.

I would like them too, but if there is a built-in EVF... Dream cameras IF evf.

Neil189: Why are the dpreview forum members such whiners? If you don't like it, buy something else. This camera is better than most people know how to use, is the first of its kind on the market, and we don't even know how it may or may not perform. Go out and take a picture and quit being so negative. Look now I'm whining too. Sheesh.

The point is: with built-in EVF it would be closer to ideal of camera I want; without one, just another junk camera. Lumix LX100 would be the one, but at 75mm as the longer FL, it is to short. If it reaches at least 100-130mm (G1xII would be great with built-in EVF), I would not look elsewhere. (I know it is hard to compare 1" and 4/3 sensor, but I am making compromises.)

Joriarty: Where are you folks getting the idea that there's no EVF? You can't tell that from the front view! That could be a pop-up EVF on the top there, like the RX100 III. Way to jump to conclusions.

From this image of the mockup, I can also tell that it should have a tiltable (not fully articulated) LCD, too... Not only a "no EVF".

cgarrard: Canon save some production costs, scrap this, and re-design with a built in EVF. It's absolutely clear to me that while you'll make a minority of purchasers happy with this camera announcement, that you've made a grave error in not designing it to please the majority who are interested in this segment.

ALL of the last G series models are san's viewfinder- and you have to be absolutely blind not to see that the desires of enthusiasts want BUILT IN finders.

Next you'll see Canon eliminate the optical finders in their DSLR's.

Well, due to their avoiding to implement a built-in EVF`s, I am no longer their fan. And I am seriously considering selling my EOS system, too, and switching to Nikon (or even Sony A7). Like long ago Nikonians once switched to EOS.
Canon wants to become a leader on the mirrorless market within a year? What a nonsense! No way without a built in EVF.

In reply to:

cathyph1: No EVF means no purchase from me. And add-on EVF's are a pain so that won't work for me either. The other manufacturers are adding excellent EVFs to their cameras and making them super usable. I will only buy this new camera if it has one.

C/P
Canon is stubborn in avoiding EVF, I am stubborn in not buying Powershot cameras, and am looking elsewhere. Additional EVF (like for G1x MkII and M3) is not an option to me. Powershot might be perfect camera by all other means, but without EVF it is just another disabled camera.

In reply to:

nemark: My high-end compact camera of choice would (WOULD) be a G1x MkII, IF it had a BUILT-IN evf. Fully articulated display would be a great plus.
Unfortunately, being without built-in EVF, my cameras of choice are, in this order: Lumix LX100, Fuji X30, Fuji X100T, Sony RX100 III, Lumix FZ1000, and only at the sixth place is G1x II. Sorry Canon, these days I am contemplating a high-end compact camera and this is may rang-list. After G1x MkI I hoped for EVF and you disappointed me. No viewfinder at all and limited articulation of LCD.
Shame.

Glad I am not alone ;)

On article A second glance: two takes on the Leica X (403 comments in total)
In reply to:

vroger1: The reviews mirror what other sites have stated. It never ceases to amaze me that a company such as Leica could turn out a product which is so esoteric. I don't believe I have ever seen one in use. This problem is not strictly Leica's. Canon has for years striven to produce digicams with wide appeal but always leave something out- be it a viewfinder (Optical or EVF) or a fast lens. The only company in solely my opinion, which has time and again succeeded in bringing out digicams with the widest possible appeal is Panasonic.

And Fuji, too.

To David Wentworth:
"a 35 mm equivalent f/1.7. The camera would not allow me shoot at f/1.7 when within a certain distance to a subject. Instead, the aperture would automatically "correct" to f/2.2 or f/2.8, even when in full manual mode."

I suspect that it is the same reason why did East Germany Jena Zeiss do the same thing with some of their lenses (2.8/35mm Flectogon and 3.5/135mm Sonnar at least). And the reason is simple: as you focus closer and closer, your lens moves further from film/sensor surface becoming "a longer focal length, while diameter of the hole ("aperture") that passes light to the sensor remains same. The ammount of light that reaches sensor is reduced. That is also why 2.8 macro lens when set to 1:1, becomes actually f5.6 (in other words, you`ll need for 2EV longer exposure).

On article Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? (325 comments in total)
In reply to:

2eyesee: The adage "if you're explaining, your losing" comes to mind. The need for this article in itself shows that Fuji have missed the mark.

It's been 20 months since the X20 was announced, and no improvement in the core areas of sensor and lens. Meanwhile, Sony have 3 different RX100 models with 1" sensors at various pricepoints to choose from. Fuji have has 2 years to respond - a fail as far as I'm concerned.

Well, EVF is what is missing in many competitor models, and lot of other things that come with this new Fuji is why I am finally going to buy this (not so) little thing. I am not replacing old "compact" camera. I was without all around camera for a while, and with this body it is going to end. I didn`t need a revolutionary new camera, just already existing things but in different cameras from different manufacturers to be combined in one. And that is what X-30 brings to me - all in one.

It is more than physical resemblance to an electronic chip. It functions that way, too. Just think of people as electrons, and their motion as en electric flow...
Congratulations.
