G1X has a viewfinder. P8000 doesn't. G1X wins.

So far, these are the latest reviews of the P8000 Do you have any other links or proof the P8000 will not come with a VF? In order to have any credibility on this forum, when you make claims, you need to have some kind of proof.

The original G1X had a tunnel VF with 78% field of view which was basically useless, for all intensive purposes. The new G1X Mark II comes with only an accessory VF for $299. Add that to the $800 price and you are now up to $1,100.

Even if the P8000 does not come with a built-in EVF, it will probably come with an accessory EVF for less $. It will probably have much better IQ due to its newer technology imaging sensor . I think with the existing features that have been rumored so far (if they are correct) will make it a much better bang for the buck fixed lens camera, IMHO. Nothing is for sure at this point in time, and only time will tell, along with reviews and side by side image comparisons

Growing old is inevitable, Growing up is optional!

If the EVF is optional then it will be the DF-N1000 that was announced with the Nikon V3. In Canada this can be purchased for $329 so that suggests a $299 price for the US.

Edit: I see that B&H is selling the EVF for $328.
