Is the G1X dead?

The G1X doesn't register in the top 200 (or so) Canons at Flickr:

Don’t take that as the last truth, though it’s still a serious indicator.

Other indicators additionally show it’s public interest to be waning:

We all know, all they have to really do is toss in the Digic VI.

The questions are, would a giant corporation put any funding at all into a product that, by the numbers, is drastically losing consumer favor?


Are they going to follow the very (marketing wise) success of the RX100:


“The Sony RX100 offers a slightly smaller 1-inch sensor, but provides image quality that outpaces this Canon's in almost every way. That the RX100 is also small enough to fit into your pocket and offers a similar level of control for $150 less is another nail in the G1 X's coffin.”


My call is... it’s dead.
