Should I wait for the Canon G7X mark IV?


I have an internal debate, I want to buy the g7x mark iii but I'm afraid that the second I do it, the second canon launches the IV. My question to you all, do you think Canon will EVER launch a mark IV in 2024? or is the iii the final one of the 7gx serie?



Only Canon would know.  The original G7X was introduced in 2014.  The Mark II in 2016 and the Mark III in 2019.  So if Canon is planning to continue this line, and past history can be used as an average (these are all huge ifs), then the Mark IV is quite overdue.

A better question to ask though if the features of the G7X III will meet your current needs both now and for at least a few years to come.  New electronic gear is always around the corner.  Same for computers, TVs, stereo equipment, etc.

Having said that, it is also wise to see when a particular piece of equipment was introduced to get a better understanding of how long it may still be supported.  Going on 5 years of age, the Mark III should have between 2 to 5 years remaining of support.
