What might a G1X II offer that an EOS M w/ Pancake Zoom might not?

That is, supposing that an EOS M pancake zoom eventually comes along?

I haven't really used my G1X since getting an EOS M, due to its smaller size, better optics, larger sensor for 3:2 shooting, and my preference for EOS over Powershot jpeg processing.

The 5cm macro is perhaps the most enticing thing about the G1X II, as I'm guessing an EOS M pancake zoom wouldn't be able to achieve that. The flip screen is another selling point. I would guess lens sharpness would be about the same, and the G1X II would likely pack a wider zoom range. Camera size, sensor size, and jpeg processing would still be to the advantage of the EOS M.

Maybe the better question is, why sit around waiting on the possibility of an EOS pancake zoom when I can have a G1X II in a couple months? lol

I suppose that depends on your needs.  For me, the painstakingly slow AF on the the EOS M makes it a non-contender.
