At Canon USA (external link)
Now has 12.1 MP
Zoom range unchanged from G12.
3" screen, up from 2.8" on the G12.
LCD has about 2x the pixels of the G12 (922000 vs. 461000 in the G12)
f/1.8 at widest, f/2.8 at max. telephoto
Slightly smaller than the G12, although the weight is the same.

Not that much talk about this camera. Is anyone interested? They say new sensor but it appears to be the same size but I am guessing the G1X has taken away from this type of camera a bit?

60% of the reason I got the G12 is for the flippity screen which I love love love on my 60D.

I like how the G15 is smaller but bad news about a fixed screen. With the new Digic5 it of course has faster AF and the new faster lens is also nice...
If the G16 does not get the flippity screen back, I'll be looking to the G1x replacement or something else.

for me the 6D & G15 are disappointing but then I'm not looking to go FF in the near future anyways.

PS.... I was excited about a 60D replacement but not even a peep from Canon...

I do like the flip screen on the 60D but its not something that makes or breaks it for me. To me this is the most interesting announcement.

Can see absolutely nothing about this camera that would move me to buy one. Fixed screen, only 5x zoom - what's the point?

Hope the SX50 is more exciting but they'll have a job matching the features on the Panasonic FZ200.

I think I'd prefer the constant f/2.8 of the Pano with 24x zoom over the 50x zoom and f/3.3-6.5 of the SX50, but it will be interesting to see the full Dpreview review of all these cameras.

Well there is a second knob behind, and sort of nestled under the mode dial. Who knows what it it?.

Gone is the flip out screen, I didn't see any mention of touch screen menu items, but I'm not counting that out yet. Looks much like from the back the controls of my SX150 is, and probably is generally alike.

There is nothing there, I would trade my G-12 for. There is not much evidence for CMOS sensors, in smaller sizes for a great deal of reduced noise. From most of the samples I have seen they are inconsistent, and noise suddenly appears where it really should not be. The only for sure thing I can say, is CMOS sensors are cheaper to manufacture.

On the one hand that lens is a big improvement, 1.8 at the wide end and still 2.8 fully zoomed? Yes please, what a boon for shooting indoors.

On the other hand, I don't get the justification of removing the articulated screen for size concerns at all. Like, congratulations, you took useful but chunky camera, removed a huge feature in order to save a few millimeters, and what did you end up with? A less useful camera that's still too big to be pocketable. What the hell was the point?

Is the viewfinder improved? I can see removing the swivel for that.

I have owned my last LCD only camera, because you cannot see these screens in bright daylight. Canon much improved on that problem, with the articulating LCD. That now leaves you with a make do viewfinder, I have a little cheap A1200 that also has a make do viewfinder. Smaller but just as beneficial, as the one on the G-12.
Which is like the wording on an old fire box, break in case of emergency, but in this case it’s use in case of emergency. By the removal of the articulating LCD, Canon has blown their big toe off.

Well truth be told the G1X, was the replacement for the G-12, this G camera is stripped down so as not to compete with the G1X. One or the other of these cameras, is destined for extension. Or like Kodak, maybe it's Canon.

I am just trying to figure why people would buy this, vs a s110, they both seem to be very close in performance, and the s110 will fit in your pocket?

G15 is f/1.8-f/2.8, the S110 is f/2-f/5.9. That right there is reason enough, but you can add on an external flash, have more intuitive button layout, and more. I'd easily spend the extra $50 for a G15 over a S110.
