HeyItsJoel: Yeah, but how much?!

At that price, it's gonna give Olympus EM-1 a run for its money.

HeyItsJoel: Hmmm. Thanks to that comparison chart, I think I'll go with the G1X II. Compared to the G7X, it has a larger sensor, further reach, lower ISO and a hotshoe.

@Richard Butler - Thanks for your input. It does help with my consideration between the two cameras. The hotshoe, however, remains a selling point for me.

nerd2: I've been using 'crop' bodies for almost a decade, but still I hate olympus and its delusional marketing strategy which plagues many people.

To be equivalent to FF counterparts, smaller format body/lens should be:

a) FASTER to achieve the same total light and same DOF.
b) SHARPER to achieve the same sharpness.
c) has the similar MP count.

For example, to compete with A7 plus 24-70 f4 lens, one needs a 24MP m43 body and 12-35 f2 lens that is TWICE sharper than 24-70 f4. Of course most lenses (even $100 kit lenses) are now very good and can be used for professional purpose, but that does not justify Oly to charge the same money for inferior lenses.

Why is this a big deal? Costco can print any of your pictures at any size for less money.

It's like buying a rental car after everyone's had their turn abusing it. No thanks.

HeyItsJoel: G7X > GX7.

And while we're at it, E=MC2.

"By caver3d: You are clearly no physicist, nor a photographer.
The larger sensor GX7 >>> G7X"

And clearly you have no sense of humor. If I met you in person, I'd give you a dollar so you can buy one.

In reply to:

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: When I read the name "G7X" I wondered why canon is messing up their naming with Panasonic (they have GX7)
But then, Canon powershot started using "G" before panasonic Lumix G. So Panasonic must use something else. Otherwise it's confusing!

It's not any different between Nikon D70 vs Canon 70D? D60 vs 60D?

In the midst of all the moaning and complaining in here, I would like to make my contribution.

NIKON, HOW DARE YOU MAKE A CAMERA THAT DOESN'T DO EVERYTHING! IT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE MY CAR THROUGH TRAFFIC VIA BLUETOOTH! I NEED THIS FEATURE AND I DEMAND IT. NOW!

There. I didn't want to feel left out.

Carry on.

dbo: Regarding battery life just respect basic rule number 1.

1) Always, absolutely always keep a spare battery in your camera bag.
2) Always, absolutely always keep a spare memory card in your camera bag.

3) Always, absolutely always remember to bring your battery charger with you in your camera bag.

...or else, it wouldn't matter how many spare batteries you carry with you.

Mark Ma: I'm a Canonite and all my cameras are Canons. However, after comparing this new Canon with Sony RX100 II and RX100 III, I'm leaning toward buying a Sony because of two things: Sony's battery lasts longer (50% longer) (mainly because of the EVF) and Sony's video modes include AVCHD.

Moot points for me. I'd still prefer canon for the image quality.

In reply to:

Iwan33: RX 100 is a gem and has served me almost 2 years now. But honestly I always liked the colors of my Canon cameras, hopefully this is a RX 100 with canon JPEG colors (only shooting JPEG). That it has a brighter lens is the cherry on the pie.

You're not alone. I, too, believe that Sony colors leave much to be desired.

Chris62: In full size we can see strange thing - smaller sesnor cameras Olympus/Panasonic deliver better quailty.

Until you compare it to a full frame camera at full size.
