Re: Your decision will be correct. If already have DSLR, go for G16; otherwise, G1X

The G1X is appearently sharper than G16. Plus, the G1X price has dropped to about $50 more than the G16.

I have a 70D so for critical work (or when I can be bothered to take a bulky camera with me), I'll use that.  The G15 has very few disadvantages compared with the G16 (and some say it's sharper) so I'll probably go for that as the price difference vs the G1X is substantial.

My preference (unless I yet change my mind) is still for a pocketable camera that must have a view finder (otherwise I have to fumble around for my specs), and the G15/G16 wins hands down (for me) over the G1X, or any other compact I've looked at so far.

Always open to suggestions though!
