Re: Am I getting one? I agree with Marco
In reply to Marco Nero, Feb 12, 2014

My sentiments exactly Marco. Sorry to say I'm glad you were wrong in your prediction and that the line will continue. The mk 2 is an improvement assuming the lens and sensor are up to its predecessor, but not compelling enough yet for me to upgrade. The G1X is already so good in IQ compared to my 5Ds and L lenses that I feel there is little reasonable room for improvement. If this assumption is wrong things might change. But I've invested in several accessories like the underwater housing and RRS mounting bracket and this weighs on a replacement decision.

I particularly agree with Marco on the loss of the fully closing swivel LCD. I use my G backpacking and hiking and it gets banged around a lot - I like the extra protection for the LCD. I often use the tilt/swivel in ways a tilt only won't do. Yup, "a step backwards". Still, it seems a nice upgrade and I welcome it.
