G1 X Deal Breakers. Have You Returned Yours? Why Won't You Buy a G1X?

The larger sensor is a beautiful thing! The low light and higher iso with little to no noise is beautiful thing #2. But, from what I'm reading, there are lots of sacrifices, some I don't think I'm willing to give up.

What deal breakers are keeping you from buying this non-dSLR with the huge sensor? If you bought it, have you returned it? Why? What does it not have (or do) that you want in a camera?

Unless someone can convince me it's not a big deal, my deal breaker would be the viewfinder. I like a nice big, bright viewfinder that shows me what my printed picture will include and I like one to give me the choice of vital information about that shot. Now that my grandchildren are starting school, I going to need a decent zoom. I haven't had anything less than 12x in 9+ years.
