A6000 is an interchangeable lens camera with a much larger sensor. Different class of camera, and not a competitor to the G1X II.

What, are we to compare it only to cameras with 1.5" sensors?

No, but at least compare it to other large-sensor compacts. The RX100 II makes sense.

The A6000 makes as much sense. It has a large sensor (and EVF) and is darn near as compact as the G1X II.

In their review, DPReview compared the G1 X to an APS-C DSLR, an ILC and a "small" sensor compact. Customers did too.

Just as a frame of reference. Someone that truly wants interchangeable lenses isn't going to be happy stuck with one zoom range;

True, that's why DPR compared it to an ILC and entry-level DSLR. Most people who buy those don't truly want interchangeable lenses.

Many times people think they want something and then the realize they want something else. Then the realize they want both and each time they come back to dpreview. Eventually we are stuck here like ghosts dreaming of fantasy cameras.
