Re: What’s happening to the G5X II?

Be a long wait, if ever. Probably be quicker/ better off saving up for a RX100 VA, or RX100 VII.

you could buy a mint used Mk5 for what you can sell a G5X Mk2 for - Prob is that they have the same annoying viewfinder and you`re trading optical compromises , the G5X-II lens gets better and better as you zoom so is fantastic from 35mm onwards even wideopen whereas the Sony Mk5 lens is superb at 24mm and gets worse as you zoom . the AF on the Mk5a is indeed good but probably not got the reach to make use of it ...... the Mk7`s lens is too slow IMO , you`ll need to crank the ISO to get the shutter speed up ..

I don`t know why Canon couldn`t do fast AF in the G5X-II sensor - its the same BSI-Stacked device as the Mk5A but without the PDAF pixels being mapped in , guess by that stage they didn`t take the powershot series seriously enough to be bothered .
