On Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II real-world gallery article (132 comments in total)

While I'm not particularly fussy, I do appreciate realistic color reproduction, and the G1X Mark II does an admirable job from my POV. Definitely a camera that is officially on my wish list.

Henrikw: So happy to finally see this review. Tamron deserves all the success they can get for launching this lens, and Canon deserves to lose customers/revenue by releasing their overpriced 24-70 II without IS. It was such a kick in the face for loyal Canon wedding photographers like myself.
Selling my Canon 24-70 and buying the Tamron was the best decision ever. Not only was it a financial win situation, the Tamron outperforms the Canon in sharpness (perhaps a lucky copy). Vignetting is more pronounces but I often add it in post production - it can be removed in seconds if unwanted.
As a wedding photographer, stabilisation is the main draw. It's a slow moving type of shoot, often taking place in dimly lit locations (churches particularly). I am not an old school flash shooter, but rather focus on getting the most out of available light sources. For this reason my favorite lens is the 85 1.2, and the Tamron compliments it perfectly for low light situations.
Cracking lens!

Well said! Couldn't agree with you more.

Outstanding effort. Reveals that special blend of obsession and dedication necessary to produce truly lasting impressions.

australopithecus: I have a kid with an N8 (he's had it for about a year). Took it to Europe on a skiing holiday and could hardly believe the video footage that this little "phone" produced. I've worked up some shots in PSE and they are excellent.

Once Nokia sort their operating system out (Now that Microsoft is in on the deal) Apple is dead !

"Apple is dead !"

LOL!
