Re: G1 X replacement soon? (Or am I dreaming?)

I bought it for £350, loved it but by a month later hated and sold it. Probably cheap because it is so awkward to use. The lens wipes out the whole bottom left quarter in the screen at wide angle. The final straw was zoomed into a full face photo and could not focus it even at 'macro'. When it is good it is great but not in any way an all round camera. Would have kept it as a specialist tool if I had the money but it is a very eccentric machine.

I think it is cheap because it is such a tricky beast to use. Canon desperately need to develop an effective EVF also.

I've seen it as low as $449.99 earlier this year.
