Re: Happy G1 X owners excited about G1 X Mark II?

With the published Chinese brochure I am now, but not quite, virtually convinced. Which means I will have egg on my face, and stupidly said I would post a photo of same. (will I ever learn?) But still, lets see what tomorrow brings:

1. Does it have the same size sensor?: 1.5

2. Is the sensor an improvement over the original one in the G1X?

3. Is AF faster? (although I never had a problem with it, but seems to be the chief compalint)

4. It appears to have a "tilt" LCD and not a fully articulated one. (I can live with that)

5. Ergonomics? Will it handle as well as the one I have now? A real plus of the G1X is the way it handles and feels in my hand. I have large hands and it feels perfect, more so than any camera I own except for a DSLR, of which I have two and hardly use anymore.

There will be, of course nay-sayers, trolls and Canon haters from other forums. But if Canon does what it is capable of (and we haven't seen much of that in recent years, except for the EOS M INHO) then the new G1X Mark II will be a success, I sure hope so, if for no other reason than to quiet the whiners & complainers of the current G1X (a great camera IMHO).

We shall see!
