A great deal is made about the slow auto-focus of the G1X, but based on my, albeit limited, experience with P&S cameras, it's about average, and I see it as a non-issue. Likewise the lack of macro focusing, for which I'll use my 7D and 100mm f/2.8. The most annoying feature of the G1X to me is the shutter delay and the slow shot-to-shot time which apparently don't seem to bother others nearly as much as the auto-focus speed. I find this a little puzzling, but then I guess different strokes for different folks.

I have a 96mb/s Sandisk Extreme Pro card in mine with review switched off. There is a bit of lag but nothing that bothers me but I understand where you're coming from on that one. I have a little Sigma DP2X, superb IQ but you don't know slow lag times until you've used one of these quirky little gems, take a shot and put the kettle on :

Haha! Sounds like my X100 shooting Raw - nearly 4 sec to write but you can continue to shoot pretty much immediately but just not review images or alter menus. Pretty much the same as my old Sigma SD14.
