G1X2

The upcoming replacement for the PowerShot G1 X has leaked out a few days before release. The camera is rumored to have a slimmer body and lighter weight, as well as an external EVF. Most notable, the lens is expected to be improved to a 24-120mm f/2-3.9 lens (compared to the f/2.8-5.8 lens on the original G1 X).

Additionally, the G1 X successor should be equipped with a DIGIC 6 processor and cost around $700 USD.

Canon G1 X

The Canon G1 X was a bit of an odd bird when announced a couple years back at CES 2013 with its larger sensor (still not quite APS-C sized) and slow lens at f/5.8 max aperture on the telephoto end.

Canon Mirrorless

The latest rumblings of Canon’s upcoming mirrorless format suggest that the sensor within will be larger than the Canon G1 X-sized sensor that has been previously rumored. ¬†Instead, it seems that the popular 18MP sensor found in the Canon Rebel T4i will find its into the Canon mirrorless camera.

This seems like it will be a big win for Canon, if true, as it would enable the Canon mirrorless system to more directly compete with the strong offering from Sony’s NEX line of mirrorless cameras – with a standard-sized sensor and an apples-to-apples competition with what I think is the current king of the mirrorless market.

What are your thoughts on Canon using the larger, 1.6x crop APS-C format over the previously-rumored 1.85x crop sensor?
