Has anyone abandoned the X10 for the G1X?

Re: Photofreak

I don't have the G1X but I had one pre-ordered, looked like the all in one I'd been waiting for until I found out there was no real macro capability available on the camera.

Sure I could buy the lens adapter & add on lenses of my choice, then carry a tripod to offset the slow lens at the telephoto end where the close up lens would be most useful but why?

If I'm paying this kind of money, need to carry a tripod, have to deal with lens adapters & add on lenses...might as well bring a dslr.

Not that I'm a serous macro shooter either, but I at least want the capability to shoot a true close up if I see an opportunity, especially if I'm carrying an all in one camera.

Anyway I bought an X10 instead & it has exceeded my expectations.
In fact it has retired my F200 & EP2.

I'm actually relieved that I didn't get the G1X. Aside from the non macro capability the DR & color depth are really poor from what I've seen.

Dan.
