Sorry for the out of topic, but since you are into macro and have the G5x2, can you tell the longest focal length where the closest focus distance is 5cm ?

On the G7x lens it is around 16.5mm (~45mm in full frame equivalence) and it is where the camera achieves the greater magnification.

A tip : on G7x2 you can register this focal length into the C mode for quick macro. It is likely still possible with the new camera.

Canon Korea has it...

The G5X II has twice the macro over the G7X I-III / G5X I lens.

Best viewed translated.

Thank you for your answer, but it is not the data I was looking for. I want to know the focal length where you have the highest magnification.

On G7x, it is at 16,5mm, where the camera is still able to focus as close as 5cm, and with the help of digital magnification, the results can be quite interesting : https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4409591

I am just wondering if the new lens retain this capability.

Interesting.

I'll add to my test list. Although I'm going to have to figure out a way to benchmark it...

Thinking stabilized (on a table) with preset focals and manual focus.

If it is like the G7x2, using the zoom lever, the minimum focus distance is displayed below the zoom bar indicator.

If not displayed, may be on manual focus, set at the minimum focus distance, you zoom and see when the focus jump.
