Re: G1 X Mark II: Not happy with handling..And A Possible Answer...

1) Doesn't the touch screen (I have never used one, except on my phone where it doesn't behave very dependably, specially in cold weather) compensate for lack of physical buttons?

Touch screen allows you to change focus point, and open the shutter, which are nice. It does not, however, replace controls for the settings I discussed.

2) What are your impressions about IQ, and low light noise performance?

I have been so taken with the baffling controls. I have yet to examine the image quality.

3) Can you compare to another camera?

I posted the images of Nikon P7700, which has my favorite controls.

Now the question follows..Will the P8000 have the control layout of the P7700?

G1X2 does have MUCH better autofocus, and lens/sensor specs. I'm not about to write off the benefit of G1X2 entirely. I just wish the controls were better.
