I like what I see.  They kept most of what I liked (big sensor, flex screen, nice lens) and fixed most of what I didn't like (slow lens, lame, bulky VF (finally AXED!), slow AF). Hopefully the sensor tech has improved.  Price is still steep but I'm in the market and don't see anything better out there, for my needs.

Unlike the G1 X (Mark I), this model seems to give higher design priority to challenging other brands (namely, the Sony RX100), rather than safeguarding Rebel and lens sales.  Credit Sony for that.

The G1 X hit the market well before the RX100.  Sony can be credited with shooting lower than the G1 X did in order to be more squarely aimed at a consumer rather than enthusiast market.

My G1 X will soon be up for sale!
