In the end Canon finally presents a 24mm fast wideangle in a compact body besides the S100-120 (which never satisfied my IQ requiremends) with a lens barrel dial.

depends on what you call 'compact': it's about 2.5 x the weight of the S100-120 and probably about twice the size (much thicker most of all).

It is also clear that they will never ever present the 'perfect' camera in a small package.

They offer various models that are alway not perfect in a certain way - screen, dial, OVF, strap,

RAW, zoomrange - there are many ways to play this game.

It's also 2x the weight of its nearest competitor, the RX100 ii. That new lens and the sensor of the G1X ii better be very good! Even if Canon has better ergonomics and a bit better image quality, the difference in size and weight could be a major negative nowadays.
