Both cameras use the latest model sensors. Granted, they use different technology, but I'd be surprised if their noise levels are different by more than 1/2 stop or so.

Ummm... No, both cameras do not use "the latest model sensors". The G1X2 uses a 2 year old, very low efficiency sensor, same as in the G1X. The P8000 will be getting a much more technically advanced senor, like the new 1" Aptina sensor. Now, if you read the specs on that, it puts the G1X2 sensor to shame in every aspect besides size. If this is the new Aptina sensor announced a new 14MP 4k 1" sensor the P8000 will be getting, it may be as good (or better than) the Sony 1" sensor, the video sure is!

It can output full 14MP resolution at 80fps and is capable of shooting 1080p at 120 fps and 4k video at 60 fps. If the still IQ is anything like the video quality, it just may make G1X2 obsolete before it even hits the shelves
