Re: What do m4/3 users think about the Canon G1X II?

I think the Canon a G1X II is a very serious contender to m43 system, lens being the main reason . Hopefully it inspires Olympus and Panasonic to man up and deliver the same kind of glass to their cameras at the same price point. For 800$ this is a really good deal, considering how much equivalent lenses in M43 would cost, right now there even isn't any equivalent zoom lens. G1X II is priced about the same as zuiko 12mm F2.0, i for one would definitely would pick the Canon, you get 12mm F2 that extends to 60mm F3.9.

At this time there is no excuse for Oly and Panny not to release a fast compact zoom. The (often overpriced) primes are nice and all but M43 needs to up their game to survive. Can't see why a casual photographer would choose M43 camera instead of this Canon really.
