You're wrong and here's why...

The sweet spots for a back up TO a DSLR are small size and great pictures. A serious DSLR user who wants a backup camera wants THOSE TWO THINGS. Period. Price has a lot less to to with it than you think. I'm not making a judgment on whether or not THIS camera meets those criteria but that's what serious DSLR users are looking for.

And trust me, if a smartphone came out that took pictures as good as a DSLR in all conditions and it cost even as much as $1500, I'm pretty sure we'd see the beginning of the end of the DSLR. Small size and quality go a long way.

My issue with the G1x and ILC's is that they really aren't compact. Especially when you put an actual zoom on an ILC. The G12 was already too big to fit in all but the biggest pockets and the G1x is considerably bigger.
