I find it amusing that everyone is so upset about the size and weight of the G1X. My first digital camera was a G3 which was wider and deeper though not as tall. It also weighed in at 481gms only slightly less than the G1X. An old range finder like the very popular Yashica Electro 35 was 140mm x 86mm x 74mm and weighed a whopping 750gms.
And the first laptop computers weighed 20lbs or so
