Marco said the G1 X was a camera disguised as a G series camera.

"This is going to be a fascinating exercise by Canon. Because they need to convince the world that the 'Slow and Bulky camera that had trouble with Closeup Photography and couldn't do Macro shots without an additional lens" is now UGLIER. It might be technically superior to the last publicly unpopular offering they sent out to market disguised as a G-camera."

And for the record, the G1 X was billed as a high-end compact P&S and not the same line as the typical G cameras.  Also, the G camera have gone back and forth between big and bulky and much slimmer.  This iteration of the G1 X is no different.  The guts and the design put it within the G series, maybe a little closer to the S in size, and producing similar image quality its namesake the G1 X.

How can Marco be considered foolish. This camera bears no resemblance to any G series camera let alone the G1X. I am not saying there is anything wrong with the camera but they have just brought out an entirely different camera but using an old name. I do not think you can really say that the concept behind the G1X has been reproduced in any way.

Ah yes, Marco. At least he hasn't claimed to know all along that it was coming. He would have been better off stating his belief once and then claming up about it so as to look slightly less foolish.
