Re: Owners - G1X Vs G12

VF aside, I don't see as much value in the G1X compared to M4/3 cameras since it has no macro function and the zoom has been significantly reduced from the older G models with maximum zoom of 210 mm (eg G9). 112mm is getting bit skimpy...you may as well just buy an sx100.

I believe the G12 is about to be replaced so maybe now is not the best time to buy one?

I probably sound negative towards the G's but actually I am a huge fan. I keep a G10, and couldn't be happier- it goes everywhere with me. Incidently, I purchased a macro prime lens for my Olympus DSLR last week, and my macro pictures with the G10 are more detailed and sharper!
