Has anyone abandoned the X10 for the G1X?

Waiting to see Sony's version of G1X

I was hopeful for the G1X but unfortunately Canon basically took a G12 body and added a larger sensor/lens. They forgot to update the rest of the G1X like the viewfinder, processor, etc. So it is traditionally Canon slow. This was not as big of a problem 2.5 years ago when I purchased the S90, but today this is not acceptable especially in an expensive camera like the G1X.

I hope Sony's version includes what they learned from the NEX.

... I love the larger sensor but the slower lens is hard to swallow. Just curious how many are willing to give up the faster lens (and orbs) of the X10 to get the G1X which appears to have usable results even at ISO6400 (and poss. 12800)?
