G5X II questions

I had a G15 (still have it actually) that I bought used from KEH. Nice little camera.

I upgraded last autumn to the new G5X II.

I have been a little disappointed. I thought that with the much larger sensor that the photos would be dramatically better (clearer, sharper) and have less dynamic range problems. I take a lot of photos on backpacking and climbing trips, and it is very difficult to avoid blown-out highlights and/or shadows that get noisy if you try to lighten them up with software.

I was thinking of trying a G1X III as it has a larger sensor (APS-C compared to the G5X II's "one inch")

Has anyone made the comparison (i.e., used) both of these cameras?

How do they compare in terms of: auto-focus sharpness

dynamic range?

low-light performance ?
