G1X series has a bigger sensor than 4/3".

... and with a bigger sensor.

I wonder why are you so obsessed with couple % difference in size (if it really exist at all)?

People always forget that m43 sensor size is 18x13.5mm and the smaller dimensions (which are different from camera to camera) come for so called "imaging area" - a crop that's left after distortion correction is done.

Try to find real "imaging area" information about Canon sensor Canon isn't that honest to provide it, right?

So I would take G1x sensor is virtually m43-size and worshiping it's "bigger size" isn't that well rationalized.
