Same here, I am selling my G1X Mark II.

Besides the the sparse handling issues, what else prompted you to sell you G1X Mark II? Did it have anything to do with its IQ, and if so, what were you not satisfied with, please expound a bit more?

IQ wise it is a great camera! I played a little bit with the jpeg and was quite happy with its capability. So there will be even more room in raw!

What prompted me to sell is 1/ the handling 2/ the way the controls work is confusing (to me at least) 3/ the evf, while the image displayed is good, the evf is not large enough to be comfortable to use regularly (not to mention that finally I do find that adding it on top of the camera a bit unaesthetic and bulky).

I have not as much pleasure to shoot with the G1X Mark II as I have with my m/43 camera, Sony A7, Fuji X-T1 and even my 300$ Canon EOS M or G15.

You were doing fine until you mentioned the EOS-M, which has less controls and is less flexible, slower to shoot, less range, etc etc.

What about the EOS-M is better than the G1X M2 other than the obvious, like aps-c sensor, lighter weight, and slightly smaller size?
