I think I have the math correct? Having a 12.5mm- 62.5mm with a 1.5" sensor would mean the following in terms of Depth of Field:

CROP - 16-80MM f/2.4-4.7 (compared to RX100: 18-65mm f/3.2-8.8)
FF - 24-120mm f/3.6-7.0 (compared to RX100: 28-100mm f/4.9-13.2)

This is a groundbreaking development if the sensor is indeed 1.5" and the specs are real, which they appear to be.

As a RX100, I *love* having f/1.8 at 28mm for video and for low light shots, but having f/4.9 at 100mm equivalent was not great for portraits (FF DOF Equivalent = f/13.2).

This G1X II has f/3.9 at 120mm... meaning a f/7 FF DOF Equivalent!. Pretty amazing DOF capability from a compact built-in-lens camera. If you put a 70-300mm lens on a 1.5x crop DSLR, you are getting about f/6 or f/7 at 120mm equiv. Pretty darned good!

plus good closeup capability is seems ...

Let's hope the lens designers are using some magic to still get sharp corners with such a design.

If the initial reviews are good and the Video is not crazy with moire, I might switch from the RX100 II. I know the G1x is larger, but I really don't put the RX100 II on my pocket anyway... I usually have a small belt case.

It's twice the size of the RX100 ii, that seems a huge difference to me. It's even heavier than a SL1 DSLR with kit zoom (I know, apples and oranges ...).

Are there any size specs? Trying to see where it is twice the size of RX100.

To me it looks like it's about the size of a Canon M with the pancake lens. With a large sensor and 24-120 and pretty fast lens, this would make a great vacation camera. I almost find the lens specs too good to be true. If you can get sharpish corners at 24mm when you stop down, this is going to be a great camera.

116.3 x 74.0 x 66.2 550g
102 x 58 x 38 mm 281g

however, the RX100 is 1" sensor with a 28-100mm lens 1.8 to 4.9 , versus a 1.5" sensor 24-120mm lens 2.0 to 3.9

Weight and depth are where is is larger (if your quoted dimensions are correct).  24mm vs 28mm is a huge selling feature over an RX100
