The good thing about the G1X is that iit's an aluminium body and aluminium LCD cover over a steel chassis so it's probable that a lightly used model will be just fine. If there's no G2X then I would expect its resale value to be quite high in future as it's a unique offering and there's nothing run of the mill about its results.

We all crow on about the IQ of the G1X but it beats my DSLR with Pro Glass. In fact I find the lens very Leica-esque with similar colouring.

BTW when looking at DPReview tests it took me a while to realise that I had to check at what focal length and what lens had been used in the studio. It's clearly not a good idea to rely on an uninformed comparison.
