Seems like a great camera, maybe not for everyone.
I love the idea of the evf bundled. I prefer a slim camera with an optional evf, than a chuncky one with a evf built in.
I will wait for the reviews and for the price to drop, everyone knows they will eventually, I dont understand why always this whinning.
bzanchet: Canon g1xII, fuji xm1 or olympus em10? Hard to decide! I have a sony rx100 and I am considering to replace it.
Judging by your picture, your flowers and birds pictures must be very exciting!
topstuff: Image Quality is not fantastic. Seems on a par with my RX100.
I do not think it really matters here.
I think I will buy one, if only because of G.A.S.
Shame about the 30p video though.
B1ackhat I agree with you! IMO Canon has the best colors output, thats why I am interested on the G1xii. The Oly colors of the EM10 does not seem a big upgrade from the RX100.
IQ is the same as RX100 (I also have both), I prefer the portability of the Sony. Imagine going to a party with a Olympus on your neck.
I need an all around lens (bright, wide angle, 3x zoom). Portability is essential. I think I will stick with my RX100, the images looks better tahn EM10. The studio test of the RX100 was not done right. I use my camera for travel, skiing, karting, partying. I dont need all kind of lenses (and I think unless you are a pro you dont need too).

bzanchet: Dear DPReview, could you tell me if it shoots at 16:9 aspect ratio? If it does, what would the resolution be?
Dear Samuel thank you very much!! I only shoot at 16:9 to view on my monitor! The resolution will be perfect for my 4K 3840 x 2160 16:9 TV. 12MP is just enough for me!
bzanchet: Very nice... A little late to the party...Canon will probably have the 4K video up to 2025.
I have a wonderful 4k Sony TV that I use as monitor, I have a Denon AVR-X2000 with 4K, Netflix is just about to start streaming in 4K... it is just that I am hoping for a compact 4K for the near future! Late to the party the RX100 created 2 years ago, small, fast portable, big sensor câmera IMHO.Canon lately has taken a lot of time to upgrade their line with major diferences or inovation as Sony.
Very nice... A little late to the party...Canon will probably have the 4K video up to 2025.
Naveed Akhtar: finally one good camera .. from canon as well!!
I totally agree with you!! I think that the 180 tiltable lcd is much more useful than the ovf.I am not sure if I will trade my RX100, which is much smaller...
Dear DPReview, could you tell me if it shoots at 16:9 aspect ratio? If it does, what would the resolution be?
Very nice camera indeed, although RX100 seems to be a bit sharper and less noise, even with the smaller sensor. The article does not mention, but the GM1 probably has a lens cap. I prefer the RX100 as a real pockatable camera.
Very nice camera! Looks very promissing, too bad it misses all the gorgeous retro looking...
Very very impressed!! My first impressions:1. A side by side with the Sony Nex 3N would have been nice2. Looks like a copy from Fuji XF13. I wonder if Leica will make a version of this camera?4. My RX100 hardly fits in my pocket, looking at both cameras from the top, the GM1 wont fit... I am quite satisfied with the 1"sensor, I dont think there will be a dramatic improvement from the GM1 to the RX100 to justify a change for me. Also, the f1.8 lens with zoom makes up to the smaller sensor, IMO.5. The camera is gorgeous, what a feat of engeneering! I think the price is up with the competition (RX 100II), still not cheap.
100% crop images are too noisy, too close to the new gen of smartphones cameras...
I wish Sony RX100 have the colors of this Canon! Would be great to combine the sharpness and low light ability of the RX100 with the color on the Canon S series!
Excelent work DPReview!I am very happy to see the RX-100 II slightly better than the m4/3s up to ISO 400! The best pocketable camera ever!
No-RAW Sony cameras have much better jpegs colours than RX-100 IMO. I am amazed that I need to "fix" the images on a $650 camera...Hope for a firmware update soon, or for the next gen of Canon and Olympus cameras with a sensor equivalent to the RX100.
Boky: something's seriously wrong with the colour.... does't look right, especially warm spectrum.
I own a RX100 and I have to tell you, the colors look the same... and that is a bad thing.The IQ on the camera is awsome, but it is biggest problem are the colours... specially skin tones... If you are looking to buy this camera for its jpegs you are in for a bad surprise.
Very nice! This is probably the best 1/1.7"camera available.
Too bad that everytime, the same gang enters the comment section to complaint about sensor size, the specs and so on... there are a lot of cameras to diferent tastes, for me this is perfect, if it is not for you, go nag in somewhere else...
