Canon PowerShot G17 with 1" sensor and 24-200mm f/1.4-2.0 lens ?

We’re told that Canon will announce the PowerShot G17 some time in May. That is an extremely fast refresh from the PowerShot G16, which was announced last August. The PowerShot G16 was a very minor refresh from the G15.


24-200mm f/1.4-2.0 lens
New 1″ Sensor
all magnesium body with comfortable grip

The lens looks pretty impressive if this turns out to be true.

The specs look like a Canon version of the Sony RX10.

Rumors have the Fuji X30 with a 1" sensor. Should be good news for all Toy Camera shooters like me! What I see from the Sony looks very nice indeed, so a 1" sensor should be ideal for these little cameras.

Here's to hoping that 1" is the new 1/1.7" or in the case of Fuji the new 2/3".

Canon is also making a G1X Mark 2 with a much larger than 1" sensor, but it won't have the focal length and lacks a view finder (built in, it has a separate wart you can buy.)

I really doubt that a camera with these specs will be named G17. It will be a completely different camera than G16.
If Canon intend to make a highly specified bridge camera they will call it something else, as it will not be a replacement for G16.

With 1" sensor and 24-200/1.4-2.0 equiv lens it will be at least as big as Sony RX10, but heavier as the lens is 1-2 stops faster than on RX10.
And with these specification the price will probably not be far from breaking the $2000 barrier.

Since a F1.4-F2.0 lens is much larger than a F2.8 lens it would have to be larger than the RX10 but I bet it was an early April Fools Joke.
