Has anyone abandoned the X10 for the G1X?

Re: Silly way to take a pic

One should take the camera and make the best possible shot with the combination of lens and sensor. It would be silly to take a ISO 3200 shot with a small sensor compact.

I'd have taken the same shot with f/2.2-2.5 and ISO 500-640 or so. The X10 will show a cleaner and more detailed pic than G1x @ ISO 3200.

The fact that G1x has a larger sensor will force you to use smaller aperture to get the same DOF. Smaller aperture forces you to use a higher ISO. Not the most elagant way to take a pic like that.

In most of your pics, you used f/5.6 or above and pushed the camera to use high ISO. On X10, I'd use f/2-2.8 and ISO 400.

Simple question

Why do I get better resolution out of the G1X at ISO 3200 straight out of the camera than you can manage without even hitting ISO800?

I'm not claiming this to be genius photography. It's not even on a tripod.

One of us is doing something wrong.
