That's your perception.

Buying a secondary camera more expensive than your primary (a dslr) is HARDLY ECONOMICAL.

My primary camera cost $2400.00. That's without a lens. You would have known that if you had bothered to check my gear listings before you shot yourself in the foot.

The secondary camera that is slower, limited, and inferior picture quality (compared to a dslr).

Is it signficantly inferior IQ?? It has almost as much detail as my 5D with an L lens on it. It has much better noise characteristics than my 5D. It has IS which none of my L lenses enjoys. It looks to me - and I do not know this for sure yet - that it will produce high-quality large prints under most lighting conditions. That means its IQ is plenty adequate.

Limited??? Man, you are really quite dense, aren't you? How many times do we have to keep telling you that for our purposes, it is NOT limited!?! It can do exactly what we want it to do.

Buying for portability? Nonsense. It's too bulky to stay in any pocket including a coat pocket. Very obvious.

Like my topic strictly dictates: G1X is a bad deal.

For you - yes. It's a bad deal!! We get that! hey everybody. listen up! This is very important to all of you!! For pixelmess, the G1 X is a bad deal!! It doesn't meet his needs as well as as a dslr system!!! He wants you all to know that!!! And to realize that what makes a bad deal for him means it must be a bad deal for you!! Remember, kids, its all about pixelmess!!!!. All the time. Everywhere. For ever and ever til the end of time.
