I hear this alot, and i doubt canon cares as long as they sell you a camera.

I doubt they sold as many G1 Xs as they had hoped.

This isn't a RX100 competitor. how could it be? with the much larger sensor, there is no way they could size match an RX series camera. Impossible.

You better believe Canon sees the RX as a competitor. It would be foolish of them to consider the G16 and S120 as their only alternatives to the RX, and they are not foolish. It's not just about camera size. Both G1X and RX can give near-DSLR results in many situations.

There are 10 canon P&S cameras selling better on amazon than the RX100, yes canon is scared.

Those P&Ss are a shrinking market. Profit margins are far smaller.
Canon would have to sell about 10 cheap little A1400s to match the profit of one RX100. That, or enter the cell phone business
