Re: Who plans to order the G1X Mark II?

Hi,

I own a G1X Mark 1.   As I commented in Howard's thread, I really like some of the refinements, but the Mark II is probably not for me.  Canon have taken the design direction away from external control to touch screen, and for me, that and an external EVF are enough to shift me toward a MILC.  For the $799 asking price and perhaps $150 for the EVF, it places the Mark II squarely in competition with several MILCs.   I'd happily pay more to get a built-in EVF and external controls.

Heck if there's a fire sale of Mark 1s, I might even buy a spare!!

Cheers, Rod
