I hit the wrong key, or button. As I was going to say, a lot is written on the forums about cameras and lenses but rarely does anyone talk of their inability to buy new cameras and lenses due to cost. I realize that most here are younger and working, or older and have a good pension and buying on a whim is nothing to them. Some, like me, are old and money is scarce when you have to consider possible expenses later in your life. So, to get to the point, I am in the house daily at this time and by myself. My children help me with nutrition and shopping of course. Time is what I have to consider when it comes to using it in a manner indoors that will keep me sane. I use this PC, a Kindle and watch a little TV and do some domestic chores. But I need a way to keep my mind stimulated and the G1X would be a nice learning tool indoors as well as a short time in the yard. Mainly I wish to learn it and get it set up first then practice indoors a while. By now you are tired of reading so I will ask any thoughts on a matter such as this one. Does it all boil down to " make your own decisions" type of thing? But I am serious and this is one way to spend time for me. Any decent comments are welcome. I am aware of the G1x and all its faults, or the couple I read about. My LX3 will take care of macros for me and a slow AF is no problem. Landscapes are a favorite, along with people on street.

Thanks so much for reading this.

I have the money. But I will pass the Mark II. I don't think the mark II is good enough for the worth of $800 based on the current real world samples from Japan. Will probably acquire the G1X when Mark II comes out and G1X has the fire sale! IN Japan, G1x in new is only selling about $350-400 now:).
