Can you point out where the G15 is deficient compared to the G16? I mean same sensor and lens, anyway.
The G15 is a great camera. I love mine. However, I shoot more video than anything, but also like shooting stills. I use a combination of several Canon cameras (video, DSLR, and my little G15). While a pocket camera like the G15/16 are not perfect for professional video, they serve a niche for me at times. I've shot some incredible footage on my G15 when I needed something very small that I can move around fast with. I like 24P, but there are times that shooting 60 fps would be very beneficial especially when blending footage to one of my dedicated video cameras on a project. For that reason alone, I'd consider giving up my G15 for a G16 (again after seeing in hand reviews). Just a tool that I would benefit from.
Also the Digic 6 processor sounds nice as well. As does the increased fps for action photographs.
But there is nothing wrong with my G15, it takes excellent photos and shoots great video given the type of camera that it is. But based on those couple things I would be interested in at least entertaining the upgrade to the G16 even if on the surface that seems slight.
Honestly, I'd rather see Canon do an impressive overhaul of the G1X. If the specs were right I'd buy one of those.
