“No market for point & shoot (G1x MKII)”
Apr 22, 2014

“No market for point & shoot (G1x MKII)”, sales person tells me in a reputable store.

"G1x MKII is not an upgrade from MKI" told me the same seller leaving me a bit puzzled.

Personally, I still see market for bigger sensor point & shoot.

I used to have Oly E-PL5 with oly 12mm (black) and panasonic 25mm primes. Great image quality up to 2000 ISO and good focusing engine but way too expensive for that setup ($2300+(13%)tax in Canada) and not as portable as G1x type cameras.

Right now I see G1X MKII as a good and light traveling camera and cheaper than a good m4/3 setup.

Is he right? Thank you,


Olympus PEN E-PL5
