Re: I keep coming back to the G1X.

At least for pure IQ.

I carry my RX100 in my pocket all day for grab shots that I am hoping will be higher quality than my iPhone. But I find I don't much like the colours, I find that even in RAW they are hard to adjust and don't give you much leeway, and I am a lot less crazy about the flesh tones than most of the reviewers seem to be. There is even higher contrast on faces in many situations, which is less flattering. And I know how to set cameras in manual. The greater noise in low light is also an issue.

So, despite its relative slowness and the fact I need to carry a close-up filter, I go back to the G1X every time I need the best IQ I can get for the size.
