I always find the "mediocre lens" comments interesting. If you only judge a lens by a single factor then I guess you're using the lens's maximum aperture at telephoto as justification? By any other measure the lens on the G1 X is not mediocre. In fact, in detail resolution, flare, color, and chromatic aberation it is an exceptionally good lens. Considering its size, it is a truly remarkable lens.

From what I've seen you are correct. And had Canon put a faster lens on the G1X then I'd guess it would have been bigger ... no doubt the lens is good but still limited in brightness and I wouldn't doubt if Dpr mentions that in their review conclusion page. Great camera and effort by Canon though - if it were $599 then I'd seriously consider it but $799 is too much IMO.
