I definitely will.

I wrote my thougths as comment to the article Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summarybut I reapeat it here because this is the right place and I don't see how to delete my comment there

I'm very happy that Canon announced this camera - I wanted something like the G1X without its shortcomings - waited a long time and because of the rumors that there will be no G2X I decided ~yesterday~ (really - no joke) to buy a second hand G1X. Now I'm again back to waiting mode ...

This is my whish list :

** Must **
- Mirrorless
- Fixed lens with bright aperture
- Zoom between 25mm and 85mm - 24mm to 120mm
- BIG sensor (bigger than 4/3)
- Fast AF with Focus Peaking - No!
- RAW mode
- Exposure bracketing
- Full customizable controls including lens dial
- Tilt screen

** Nice to have but not must **
- Full closing swivel screen - No!
- Built in ND filter
- More than one custom mode
- More than 3 exposure brackets
- Zoom above 85mm - Yes, 120mm
- Weather sealing - No
- Long battery life - Eh!, so-s0
- GPS - No
- Automatic lens cap

** Really not needed **
- Zoom lower than 25mm and higher than 120mm - 24mm
- Wifi
- Touchscreen
- Viewfinder - $300 for EVF
- Flash
- Movie mode
- Macro mode
- Thousands of ISOs

On balance, most of what you wanted.
