from sony to panasonic there's a full EVfrom sony to canon there's a full EV and 1/3..
WHY? WHY? WHY?
I am also not happy with Panasonic. I own a G3 and the IQ from G1X is much better. However, you can change lens on M43. If the new OM-D turns out to be great. I might get the new OM. I had the 9-18 lens from Olympus and it is really good. Actually, I think it is better then my EF17-40.
dark goob: G1X looks terribly soft. $800 and stuck with only a kit lens? Thanks but no thanks. This is obviously Canon trying to do mirrorless without cutting into Rebel sales (not that I blame 'em). But look at the comments below, Canon is stuck viewing 135-format (a dying dinosaur) as if it were the only full-frame format. It's not. All these mirrorless and consumer DSLR cameras are full-frame between the lenses and sensors. 135 is the new medium format. Micro Four Thirds looks better than film scans, and looks great at any sane ISO levels. Who honestly cares which camera has the best "worst quality" mode? I don't care what 6400 looks like. They all look better at 800 or 1600. Put a Panny 20 1.7 and then you don't need as high ISO anyway!
I got it last week for 5980HKD (with one extra battery and 8G SD card) I think it is doing much better then my Panasonic G3.
Bought G1X last week. I think the IQ is very good. Much better then my Panasonic G3. It would be nice if my Panasonic G3 has the same sensor and control as the G1X.
