Are you sure these are real? You mean there really is a MarkII? I seem to recall someone once saying:

"Canon have no intention of producing a sequel to the G1X. I've been pointing this out for over a year now but for some strange reason people here keep expecting to see a successor.
In the meanwhile... forum members keep posting the same "where's the G2X?" threads asking for a sequel. There's not going to be one."

G1X Mk2 is NOT a G2X. It's not even considered a successor. Same as Canon lenses with a Mk2 designation are not a new type of lens but a re-marketing of the original lens using technical advancements. This new camera is simply a re-modelled G1X. In fact it's still called a G1X. It is not a G2X.

The Canon announcement begins:
"Canon has announced the long-awaited follow-up to its PowerShot G1 X large-sensor compact: the G1 X Mark II."
Where I come from, "follow-up", "sequel" and "successor" mean pretty much the same.
Anyway, I'm glad they did a follow-up.
