For those concerned about the quality of the G1X II sensor- I totally understand. Canon sensors are lagging behind, and it sounds like a rehash of the old G1X sensor with new processor might be used. If that's the case, it won't stand up to the new m4/3 sensors.

Maybe another alternative will be the rumored Nikon (p8000?), which is said to have a 1" sensor, 24-120 2.0-3.0 lens, and EVF. The IQ may be close from a more advanced Sony 1" sensor compared to an outdated Canon 1.5". The Nikon is said to be smaller, so if it's also cheaper, it might be an interesting option. If it shows up and is priced around, say $600, it would be quite an interesting rx100 alternative as well.
