Havent hardly fired up my G15. Been using the G12 and G1x more. Cant keep up with the changes. Id rather see an improved G1X. Dont need competition for a cell phone.

Granted, I don't take as many shots as a lot of folks, but my G3 was my only camera from 2003 to 2007. It has seen limited use since then but my wife and daughters have used it ocassionally and the articulated screen still works just as good as ever. I wouldn't worry about a flip screen failing but the lack of one would not be a deal breaker for me. I used the screen a lot but as bad as it was I used the viewfinder a lot. Given the choice of a flip screen or a viewfinder I would choose a viewfinder every time. That is a personal preference and one many wouldn't agree with.

The problem with the G series viewfinders is that they don't show any information, not even the point of focus, so almost a complete waste of time. Personally I would prefer a quality EVF.

I have a G3 & G12.
The G3 lens is F2.0 - F3.0
The G12 is F2.8 - F4.5
The G16 is F1.8 - 2.8
The 12 & 16 have the same focal length: 28-140mm (5x). The 3 is 35-140mm (4x)

I loved the bokeh of the G3 and miss it on the G12. What am I losing if I go to the G16 lens?

Thanks for your help.

Because the G16 has a different lens from the G3, the bokeh may be different.

But no great loss going from: F2.8 - F4.5 to F1.8 - 2.8?

Am I the only one who doesn't like flip screens? Makes the camera more bulky and is one more thing to break.

Nope, there are at least two of us! :)

Having larger apertures, the G16 would be expected to have reduced depth of field as compared to the G12 - probably more like the G3.

Probably more like the G15, since they (G15 & G16) have the same aperture range...

The Digic 6 processor it is *supposed* to improve IQ by a huge factor...

f/2.8 at 140mm is nice.
Not able to control with WIFI...
No Flip screen...

I hope hope 1 G1x replacement has the f1.8 lens WIFI, flip screen and able to use WIFI to control it.

The IQ difference between the SX260 with Digic5 and the SX280 with Digic6 is barely noticeable. Digic6 DOES focus a lot faster, though.

I'd be worried that the G16 will inherit the SX280's awful and apparently unfixable battery discharge problem when shooting 60 fps video.

I don't see anything here that would make me trade in my G15 for a G16.

Should have been called the G15 MkII or G15B. Less improvement than any other G series model change has provided in the past. Unfortunately, they didn't fix the primary problem: no flip screen.

Canon seems to be sticking to keeping the size down by not offering a flip screen. From what I am seeing here I would say they are losing quite a bit market sales by not offering the flip out screen, when the flip out screen could not add more than 25 mm to the thickness of the camera. I would think they would offer both fixed & flip out screen versions on their release. Just a thought.

Adding 25mm to the thickness is adding basically one inch (25.4mm) to the thickness. Surely that isn't correct.
