Does anybody else have the same opinion.

Lack of contrast, saturation that lead to unispiring colors.

Does this have a solution? (not considering post production)

I sure see the same and I don't think there's a solution. You can adjust your curves in PS all you want, but if there's no color in the first place, the only way to get it back is to paint it in. Some people do that and like to do that, but I'm not one of them. My dream camera should help me to take a photo, not stay in the way. This Canon doesn't seem like my dream camera. That's why I didn't buy it. The last best G was the G12. The line ends right here, right now. Too bad...

Have you tried to print them. The pictures.

Sometimes what you see on the screen is not the same what you get on the photopaper.

And you can see that green, yellow and red are actually more accurate than is P&Ss like RX100 and G12.

I see what I see. No charts will ever convince me that I don't see right (charts are not me). I don't like the pale colors and the boring flat look of the G 1X pictures. I do have something to compare them to and I don't like them even a single bit.

Color rendering is very different with different brands.

Canon, Fuji and Nikon have their distinct colors.

Sony and Panasonic are trying to find the ballance too.

It is like in the old filmdays when some bought Agfa, some bought Fuji, some bought Canon film rolls.

You mean "Kodak film rolls", right ?
