If the speed Af is better, i will buy the Mark II. See some reviews before.

The question really is how much better, which the early previews hopefully will answer. Is it Olympus E-M5 competitive? Or closer to, say, Fuji X100? I'm looking forward to finding out.

It no way is it close to challenging the Oly E-M5. The E-M5 is a stellar mirrorless ILC, with very fast AF, excellent IQ, class-leading and exclusive 5-axis IBIS, a weather-resistant body, and on and on. The G1X II is targeting the Sony RX100 II.


Sorry - I should have been more clear - I meant whether the AF is competitive with the E-M5's autofocus, in reference to peter's post. As for whether it competes in the market with the E-M5, I agree - no it doesn't.

Looking at videos of the original GX1's autofocus speed just now, it seems to be about the same as the E-P1+kit lens. If it's ~40-50% faster as Canon is claiming, it won't be E-M5 fast (I have both the E-P1 & the E-M5). It could approach X100S, but that's likely the ceiling, based on what Canon is saying, and the fact that Canon isn't claiming 'world's fastest AF' like everyone else is claiming.
