So it will probably be a face of between a superior sensor vs a superior lens. I my 40 years experience good glass usually wins.

That is so true!

However there are many other key considerations that make the difference in photography, one of them being Autofocus.

For instance no matter how sharp is the lens if the pics are out of focus, and in this regard the Sony is much superior and for video the difference is even more dramatic since the G1X2 lacks phase detection AF.

Also, it seems that the Canon lens relies heavy in software lens correction, not a sacrilege but it tends to smear detail, and the full samples I've seen, seem to confirm it.
