Every serious reviewer out there mentions that the G1X AF performance is slow. Some argue that it's not a deal breaker, but everybody mentions it.

To sum up this argument, the G1X is no slower than the AF on the OTHER G-Series cameras . On AF alone, it's not unique. And there are faster cameras out there with better AF but they have other problems or perhaps they can't match on other features.

I don't hear anyone complaining about the other G-Series cameras being too slow, though I'm sure someone has, somewhere.

They don't. But clearly reviewers, who can't ALL be biased against Canon, DO mention AF performance for the G1X being slow in their reviews. Why? Because its a mirrorless CDAF camera with large sensor, well north of 500 quid, so it's compare to other CDAF mirrorless cameras with large sensors north of 500 quid.
