What I first noticed is the IQ seems to me to be better than the 80D (with the pretty good 18-135 kit lens). That is strange because the G1X M3 and the 80D share the exact same sensor. How that can be possible? I imagine the embeded lens of the G1X is of very good quality (faster - though shorter - than the 80D 18-135 kit lens, but certainly with a better sharpness). Can it also be that the Digic 7 processor (vs Digic 6 processor of the 80D) has something to do with it???

Please excuse my limited English which is not my mother tongue.

yes it does help a lot, probably half stop in still and video in my experiences using both versions.
