Canon Mirrorless - Panasonic G5 - Mobile Phone Picture nonsense

If this is the Canon mirrorless system, then it looks pretty uninspiring. Compact camera styling, no viewfinder, the usual standard zoom plus pancake. Another case of doing it because they think they should?

On the other hand, the Panasonic G5, which seemed like a fairly ordinary update to the G3, actually looks very good. Must admit I like the new body shape.

Two articles on apps for mobile phone photography. Am I alone in finding the fact that people take this stuff seriously profoundly depressing? This years tobacco filter?
