The camera Panasonic should have offered!

This is the fixed MFT I'm waiting from Oly and Panny. Though the orginal G1X is, it included an OVF that I'd probably use 1% of the time. I believe the price of $800 is pretty competitive to the Sony RX100/MK II but a bit pricey compared to other cameras I am eyeing.

Personally, I now have multiple ideal pocket cameras to choose from for purchase in the future which includes the Ricoh GR, recently announced Sigma dp2 Quattro, or this G1X II.

1. With a very flexible and relatively fast lens with close up to 5cm ( I have been hoping for a compact MFT 12-60mm for a long time).

2. With a sensor of about MFT size and high ISO IQ comparable to the M5:

3. compact size, but not too small.

4. Efficient IS

I only miss a built in EVF...
