Size and weight
 
so is there any info out yet and the size of the A1? I guess it is close to what maybe the Z1 or the FX1?

I wonder how soon before people who are testing them can say something,,,and probably some people have them already to review.

Weight is appx. four and a half pounds (2300 grams) with battery; body dimensions are 163mm (width) 189mm (height) 350mm (depth).

FX1 and Z1 are slightly lighter, when I compared them a couple of weeks ago, but very similar sizewize. The weight surprises me a bit because Canon lenses were supposed to run lighter. Perhaps it is frame material that is making the difference.

That is one problem I had with prior Canon offerings is that they seemed less rugged-- something I am concerned about cause I am such a klutz. From appearances so far, these two look a bit tougher built. Mind you that is only appearances... so it will be interesting to see.

Interesting, Chris, as I've always felt the Canons to be pretty ruggedly built compared to say my Panasonic (DVX100B).
My XL2 feels way more sturdy than my DVX, right down to the tightly sealing gasket on the tape door as opposed to no gasket on the tape door of the DVX.
I've never owned a Sony so if they have a better build quality than Canon, Kudos to them.
Hopefully the bar will always continued to be raised.
