Looks decent. Vari-angle screen is gone! Hope that screen flips 180 degrees. The 1.5" sensor is still there, with fast lens!

Comparing the actual FL and the equivalent FL on G1x and G1x2 shows that the crop factor is a bit higher on G1x2 (1.92x vs 1.85x), so the sensor size is a (tiny) bit smaller, and seems that the MP count is a bit lower too. Hope that the aspect ratio still is 4:3, but the LCD looks more like 3:2.

It shoots both

4:3 gives you 4160 x 3120 pixels

3:2 gives you 4352 x 2904 pixels

Yes, that was a nice surprise.

4:3 = 13.0mp (14.2mp on G1x)

3:2 = 12.6mp

App. 13mp is OK, but would have preferred a bit more (like 16-20mp).

Agree, even 20MP would be desirable on 1.5" sensor. As opposed to Sony RX100/RX10, where I think the pixels are too dense and that hurts the noise levels (comparisons with the original G1X prove it).
