Plus rubbish menu system, plus nasty skin tones, plus poor zoom lenses, where do you want to go with this? My 5D2 has an optical viewfinder, 1/8000th shutter speed, much bigger sensor etc etc, see how that works?

The 5D2 is in a total different league man, cman lol.

The point still stands, every camera is a compromise and if you want a high IQ fixed lens camera with decent range and a fast lens then the G1X is a no-brainer.

But the A6000 seems like a reasonable alternative to the G1X for those seeking great IQ in a small package under $800.

Sure but you need to buy several lenses to match the G1X, then it's not such a bargain.

Is not a coincidence that Sony announced it right after the G1X.

Lots of manufacturers are announcing new cameras at the moment, it's that time of year, I wouldn't read too much into that. They are different types of cameras that will suit different requirements. For the range of 24-120mm Sony can't touch it, for interchangeable lenses the G1X loses, most will make their choice based on those criteria.
