Re: G1X review in dcresource

I value feedback from folks who have read my reviews, even when they're not complimentary If someone has a better way to measure "bulk" besides volume (which obviously isn't perfect), please do let me know.

The G1X has 50% more volume than the G12, that is true. But when we think bigger, we generally think linear dimension wise, not volume. It is not 50% bigger in linear dimensions, or weight. Only in volume.

Still don't understand why he's saying that G1X is 50% bigger than G12. The lens sticks out about 50% more, that's all. And again, "the lens is slow at the long end". Any other camera with this sensor size that does significantly better with a standard zoom? Could Canon even develop a lens that would go to, say f4,5 at the long end? If they could, what would be the price of the G1X which so many complain about already?

G12: 4.4 x 3.0 x 1.9 in. G1X: 4.6 x 3.2 x 2.6 in.

4.6 x 3.2 x 2.6= 38.27
4.4 x 3.0 x 1.9= 25.08

38.27 / 25.08 =1.53

Therefore the "G1X is 50% bigger than G12". I felt the difference.
