Re: S5 IS replacement
In reply to Rob Bernhard, Apr 9, 2014

Thanks for the website! That is a huge help with visualizing the size--which is actually a bit smaller than I originally thought.

After a bit more thinking, I ordered the G1X mk2 and it should be here this Friday. The true test will be how it feels in the hands and whether my pockets can accommodate it. I'm really looking for good low-light performance, so it seemed silly not to get the camera with the much larger sensor even though the body is more than twice the size. My S5 IS is limited to around ISO400 before the noise in the pictures get too distracting.

Thanks for all the help, and I'll be sure to share my opinion of the G1X mk2 after I've messed around with it a bit!
