To carry that analogy a little further, reading these forums can sometimes be like watching a NASCAR crash occur at a couple hundred miles an hour.  Or maybe it's more like watching a train wreck, I don't know.

When I bought my 7D I almost never came to these forums.  I wasn't in a rush to find out how awesome it was mainly because it was pretty obvious that if it was even as awesome as the current technology would suggest, I was buying it.  There was a little more anticipation with the G1 X because it was a whole new system, so even if the sensor was just as great as the 18MP APS-C of the day I was still curious about AF and the lens and everything else.

I guess if I was still looking for a new camera I might be more critical of Canon out of shear frustration with not being able to buy a new camera today....I mean right now at this very second so I could start shooting with it immediately.  I can understand that kind of frustration after years of putting up with lousy image quality from every P&S I owned before the G1 X.  Now any improvement over what I have is gravy on an already amazing pile of mashed potatos....or icing on a cake....or a serene translucent lake.  Daaaaaaria! (Anybody get the Cake reference there?) 

Man, four shots of espresso gets the blood pumping.
