I like the look of these. I have the Canon G12 as a backup for my dSLRs, but if I needed a small travel camera this one would come in as a strong contender.

I suggest that you check the size and weight of the Pentax MX -1 .

MX -1 smaller and lighter than your Canon G12? .

Not at all....

Don't know about the G12, but the G15 and MX-1 are not much different in size and weight. The G15 is taller than the MX-1, but depth and width are slightly smaller.  Nothing dramatic.  The G15 is 3 oz (85 grams) lighter than the MX-1. Not much of a difference at all.

Pentax MX-1

4.8 x 2.4 x 2" / 121.9 x 61.0 x 50.8 mm

13.8 oz / 391 g

Canon G15

4.0 x 2.9 x 1.6" / 101.6 x 73.7 x 40.6 mm

10.9 oz / 0.31 kg
