Sensor sizes equates to IQ
In reply to ajamils1, Feb 14, 2014

Well stated.  As the camera size increases, so does the sensor size resulting in better IQ. its up to each consumer to decide what's best for them.

RX100II if you want a truly small pocket camera with very good IQ. Otherwise, might as well get a good ILC.

Some size comparisons to consider:

http://j.mp/Me0dgy (G1XII vs Canon S120 & RX100II)

http://j.mp/MOk0mO (G1XII vs Sony A6000 & Olympus EM10)

Also note G1XII is 533 grams; over twice the weight of most pocket cameras.

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
