Re: G1 X Mark II: Not happy with handling
In reply to kitchenbug, 10 months ago

It's good to see criticism based on actual experience - thank you kitchenbug.  I expect I'll be able to sort the control rings out for my own satisfaction so that doesn't worry me too much.  In fact any kind of manual focus has to be better than what was available on the G1X.

After seeing your picture of the LCD and thumb area I agree that seems very poorly designed.  Considering the dead space therein the LCD could have much smaller physically with the same image area.  There should have been much more area for buttons, thumbs, and even an added control wheel.  I would have thought the LCD apparatus could have been thinner also but that is only my conjecture at this point.  Be interesting to see how this all shakes out with other initial users.
