In a sentence, the best (all-around) pocketable camera on the market for everything except sports where others do better (which I'll cover).


The G5X Mark II ticks the important boxes of being powerful and pocketable but is coupled with an EVF and fast versatile lens while also providing an engaging experience with stellar ergonomics, Canon colors, and a touchscreen. You might ask, what's the catch? The catch, the tracking autofocus aka AI-Servo is only available in single-shot mode with all methods, or, single point if doing continuous burst shooting presumably because it's contrast detection, not phase detection.

More likely because Canon seem not to have spent a single cent over the past few years on improving their dot in the middle or everything Contrast Detect focusing rolled out from basic point and shoot to top end kit. It gets faster but that is probably just the faster processors. The lack of Powershot investment in their own areas of expertise not bought in from Sony is very worrying. If Sony have fixed their menu and touch screen woes as the latest high end stuff indicates Canon could have problems.:-(

Said high-speed continuous shooting
