Take chance on Canon G1X or keep Sony NEX 5n?
Jan 9, 2012

This is not a hypothetical situation for me. I recently bought the Sony nex 5n with the 18-55 Kit lens. I also have canon 5dii which i hardly use due to size. The sony is still within return period. And i hear g1x being introduced...

So, what do i do? Return the sony and buy the g1x? I don't care about interchangeability of lenses since i don't plan on buying lenses for sony.

The camera would be used for my kids and video quality is important to me. One of the main reasons for the Nex was for its video capabilities. 5dii can't AF in video mode...

But i didnt like the idea of a dedicated video camera either since i do not want to carry two devices when we go out.

I do have canon flashes that will fit the g1x...

Canon or sony???

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
