Canon SX30 IS with crazy 35X lens (24-840mm eq) leaked by Canon Russia (Canon G12 is as expected)

UPDATE (Wedn September 14): The two leaked cameras have now been officially announced. Here are our usual announcement round-ups for the two: Canon SX30 IS superzoom and Canon G12 rawsumer.


ORIGINAL POST
This dpreview forum thread notes that the new and un-announced Canon G12 and SX30 IS superzoom have been leaked by Canon Russia - here are the computer-translated announcements for the Canon G12 and the Canon SX30 IS.

The big shocker is the Canon SX30 IS which features a 35X (thirty-five) optical zoom lens, going from 24-840mm (equivalent). This is insane considering it appears they are using a standard 14mp 1/2.3" sensor. This would heat up the "zoom ratio" wars!

We checked the page, it appears these are the only two new Powershots coming out in this round...

Based on the leak, here are the summary specs of each camera...


Canon SX30 IS
+ 35X optical zoom lens with IS (24-840mm equivalent)
+ lens has UD and one Hi-UD elements (someone must be "Hi" to do a 35X lens!)
+ USM, VCM
+ hot-shoe
+ 14mp CCD sensor
+ 2.7" (230K) vari-angle LCD
+ EVF
+ manual modes
+ 720p video
+ optional accessories
+ SDHC, SDXC support
+ HDMI


Canon G12
Canon G-series fans are channeling Dennis Green by calmly saying "the G12 cameras are who we thought they were"!

+ 10mp 1/1.7" CCD (C-C-D)
+ RAW
+ DiGiC 4 and "System HS"
+ 28-140mm f2.8-4.5 (eq) lens, with new Hybrid IS
+ 11 elements in 9 groups
+ 2.8" LCD (460K) vari-angle
+ OVF
+ hot-shoe
+ 2fps "burst" mode, 0.8 fps with Live View
+ 720p video
+ etc
