Nikon Coolpix A -vs- Canon Powershot G1X

They're very similar...

  • Both cameras feature an APS-C sensor
  • Both cameras have 28mm @ f2.8
  • Both cameras have 3.0" screen with 920k pixels.
  • Both cameras are too big to fit in a jeans pocket

But not really...

  • Nikon A is fixed at 28mm f2.8. Canon G1X zooms from 28mm f2.8 to 112mm f5.8.
  • Nikon A has a fixed LCD screen. Canon G1X has an articulating LCD screen.
  • Nikon A has no built-in viewfinder. Canon G1X has a built-in optical viewfinder.
  • Nikon A has no image stabilization.  Canon G1X has optical image stabilization.
  • Nikon A costs $1100. Canon G1X costs $600.

Explain what's going on in Nikon marketing's head. The Powershot G1X has been around for over a year. Why are they creating an inferior product at nearly twice the price.... more than one year later?
