Big Surprise at Adorama in Person Today - price revision downwards???!!!
Oct 26, 2012

So I finally went ahead and went to Adorama (midtown New York City) in person on Thursday afternoon to purchase the G1-X.  Despite thinking that I would get the camera for $664 (as per the website on Wednesday), I was in for a big surprise at the store.  The salesman told me that the "in-store rate" was only $599! I asked him if it was refurbished or something wrong with it or some other aberration I should know, and he said no.

Boom!  Purchased the camera and a couple other accessories for the camera.  I don't think anyone has brought this new, updated comparison but is it now a no-brainer (if you live in the NYC area) that it is a downright steal that the G1-X is at $599?  That versus the G15 at $499 or XZ-2 at $600, etc, etc.  Read the entire manual tonight and referenced some key threads/posts by some of you on here.  Prepped for a couple of crazy Halloween parties on Friday and Saturday nights, so I plan on shooting (other people) in my first few real attempts with the camera.
