Our view about Canon G16 update / Canon G17
Canon G16 update is due and after the announcement of Canon G7X and G3X camera it’s really a big question does we really need a 1/1.7inch sensor based camera when we already have premium compacts with 1″ sensor from Canon. The other most important factor is price, the (1st gen) Sony RX100 camera is available at $448 @ B&H that features a 1″sensor with 20.2 Megapixels resolution and ISO upto 6400 on the other hand the Canon G16 with a small 1/1.7 inch sensor will cost you $399 (only $49 less compared to Sony RX100).

So if someone ask me to buy a compact camera with large sensor under $500, I will pick Sony RX100 without a doubt.
Canon should consider all these facts, they must announce a camera that must be affordable and feature rich.
