IMO if you're looking something as big, heavy and costly as G1XII, you might as well look at CSC's like Sony NEX/A6000, Olympus EM(5 or 10) and Fuji X which will give you much more versatility and options, as well as bigger sensors (except for M43).

All these options are great but as soon as you add a lens to these ILCs, they become larger than G1x II and most likely with worst lens. The only comparison that you can do is on price, other than that its like comparing apples to oranges or horses to donkeys

yes, the most obvious comparison is NEX/A6000 with 16-50 kitzoom against G1X MkII. The Sony combo is 1.5-2 stops slower, a bit lighter, but also more bulky. And I'm betting that there is a HUGE difference in image quality (lens quality) between these two, probably bigger than the price difference

if canon can't match the distortion / optics of that 16-50 .. then someone shoot the engineers that worked on the Mark II.

is there a lens in production that has more distortion in that lens that isn't a fisheye?

i doubt you get more than 12Mp out of that lens even on a 24Mp sensor.
