You can easily carry the G1X on your belt.  I was using my G9 before and was also worried about the size and weight. However, haveing used the G1X now for a couple of months, I do not feel the size diffrence anymore.  I am using an old neoprene binocular casing since I could not find anything small and light (still looking...).  Since I am carrying it a lot in the mountains it has to be small in case I have to do some climbing...  I am as well carring a 1.8x Teleconverter on my belt, which works very well.  Keep in mind that the lens cap is quite bulky, so if you decide not to use it - like I am doing - then your casing can be much smaller.  I only put the lens cap on for storage and carry always a microfiber cloth for cleaning the lens and my sun glases... 

Have fun with your new G1X!!!
