How good is the G1 X Lens?

Hello all,

My wife just bought the Canon G1 X, and I'm sure it will be a fine camera for it's intended use but I have a question.

How good is the lens compared to the mid priced lenses we use on our DSLR cameras? I understand the focal length and aperture numbers well enough, but I wonder about the image quality? Edge to edge sharpness? Distortion?

Thanks for your time guys.
