Re: Canon G1X is 1 year old! Post your Favourite PICS.

I bought my G1X in September 2012 and must admit that I am still not 100% sure about it. While you can take some nice pictures with it, the shortcomings regarding speed (AF and general operation) as well as the non-macro ability are a strong downside for a "compact camera". I ended up buying the filter adapter, the 250D close-up lens, a 1.8x teleconverter, WP-DC-44 underwater casing & M67 lens adapter & Inon underwater close-up lens.  This is a lot of gear and it easily compares with a Sony NEX 6 with an extra tele-lens, which would give me more flexibility and a much faster AF.  My main reason in favor for the G1X was the availability of an affordable underwater casing (about €225 in comparison to around €2000 for a Nex 6), since this still holds true, I guess I have somehow achieved what I wanted. However, for anybody not going underwater I don't see the point in the G1X - buy a NEX 6 or another system camera (Oly?), or G15 if you want something small - sorry, for being so blunt...
