Re: Happy G1 X owners excited about G1 X Mark II?
In reply to howardroark, 7 months ago

I'm extremely happy with my G 1X, and won't give it up anytime soon, but it looks as if Canon has addressed the major concerns well with the new Mark II. I could live easily with a tilt screen, although keeping the tilt/swivel would have been better. The camera has greatly improved macro function and a superb lens has been made even better (I trust). It appears the EC dial at the top of the camera has gone. That's a BIG loss for me ( I do a lot of HDR bracketing, and having that dial is extremely quick and useful), but it wouldn't be a deal breaker. I was sort of hoping that Canon would put an Exposure Comp dial on its dSLRs too, I would have loved that.

Ugly? Yes, it's ugly, but so am I and I am still a great guy.

EDIT: I notice the front dial is gone also. Bummer.
