When the G1 X was released, I noted that the sensor had exactly the same properties as the GH1 sensor:

The only difference being that the G1 X used the whole sensor, slightly larger than the Four Thirds size, due to the multi aspect sensor of the GH1.

Looking at the specs, it appears that the G1 X II uses a sensor of a similar size, so it is probably again from Panasonic. Why else would they use exactly this size? It's not like a lot of sensors are being made in these sizes.

I dunno, from what I recall the GX1 had exactly the same pixel characteristics as the larger canon sensors, meaning people thought it was just a cut down version of those.
