Have to agree Macro Nero. The camera is neither fish nor fowl. I always thought that the G1X was an uber-compact, pushing DSLRs on IQ yet retaining the compact space. The G1X II has a mixed personality, good lens, shape and an EVF (though expensive) dual rings yet it still has powered zoom, a compromised flash ability and looses the flip screen. Price for the body will fluctuate with a street price taking over eventually, but I don't see that happening with the EVF as it is obviously going to fit the M series eventually.

As written before, I was looking for a DSLR replacement. In ridding myself of said system I would loose much money, and some useability if I opt for the G1X II. If I keep said DSLR system and add a G!X (original) I would gain flexibility. As you I will have to fence sit untill a few reviews happen. There is one more thing I have thoughts on, namely, will the IQ threaten a DSLR. Canon and others make a lot of revenue on aftersales kit, this will be limited on the G1X II, and maybe this explains some of the omiission in the product. We shall see no doubt.
