CMurdock: If this camera produces blurry pictures like the original G1X, what good is it? It certainly won't be worth $800. For years now, Canon's philosophy has been that it's okay to produce blurry, over-processed images as long as the overall size of the image is large so it looks sharp when it's printed or shrunk, but that doesn't work for me.
canonf1Maybe so. You have to change to macro even when shooting something a few feet away definitely a nuisance and a potential blurred photo.By the way what are your other complaints? For me it would be slow operation and not wide enough lens.The new 24 equiv is perfect. The optical VF is close to useless unless of course you like looking at your lens instead of the scene. It is better than none at all though.
Blurry? You must have a grease smudge on your glasses. The G1x produces very sharp images. If you complained about speed of operation and focus speed I could agree but the image quality is second to none.
mpgxsvcd: I really wish Canon could shrink their lenses instead of shrinking their cameras.
you can take photos with it in your pocket?
