Wouldn't you know it? I'm getting set to sell my G7X II and I get the "lens error" on my camera. Turned it on and the barrel won't retract. So now, I'm having to spend upward of $150-200 to get it fixed.

I had in mind to replace it with the G5X mark II but this has soured me against the G-line. Such a small camera with small internal parts, I can't have a camera that's so damn delicate.

Now I'm looking towards the M6 mark II.

Why not jump the Canon ship entirely, and switch to a Sony RX100 VI or VII.? Or even a Panasonic LX 100II?

They have similar designs to The G7X ii and would have the same lens weakness. That's not really a solution.

A solution to what exactly?

This is just standard my xyz camera has broken I am never going to buy an xyz camera again which is routine fare on any brand forum.

It gives absolutely no useful information on the overall reliability of the product.

Did you read the OP? Or you just want to keep being hostile to me? Whatever floats your boat.

Yes. I read it.

Do you want to keep being hostile to compacts on the basis of this one failure?

I will drop out now as this is just to and fro banter with a marked downer on compacts and Canon  and nothing much to learn about Powershot really here.
