My expectations are not met

I was a happy user of the G12 but it broke and the only replacement camera with a swivel LCD was the G1x. I knew that the main limitation of the G1x was a lack of true macro (closest distance about 20cm) so I bought a second hand G1x in the hope that the next camera (the G2x) would have a better Macro (and some betters specs) and so I would buy a new G2x.

To my disapointment, the Swivel LCD is no more an option on the G2x, and my question is if there is any improvement to the macro mode. If not, I really have to take care of the G1x since it is likely the last canon semi-pro camera with a swivel LCD. I also think the price is getting too expensive.

The G1x already had great image quality so I don't understand Canon - the more users complain that they miss the swivel LCD in the G15-G16 upgrade, the less this option is constructed in canon cameras. ???
