A6000 is an interchangeable lens camera with a much larger sensor. Different class of camera, and not a competitor to the G1X II.

What, are we to compare it only to cameras with 1.5" sensors?

No, but at least compare it to other large-sensor compacts. The RX100 II makes sense.

The A6000 makes as much sense. It has a large sensor (and EVF) and is darn near as compact as the G1X II.

In their review, DPReview compared the G1 X to an APS-C DSLR, an ILC and a "small" sensor compact. Customers did too.

Just as a frame of reference. Someone that truly wants interchangeable lenses isn't going to be happy stuck with one zoom range;

True, that's why DPR compared it to an ILC and entry-level DSLR. Most people who buy those don't truly want interchangeable lenses.

Many times people think they want something and then the realize they want something else. Then the realize they want both and each time they come back to dpreview. Eventually we are stuck here like ghosts dreaming of fantasy cameras.

Looks like Nikon may take everyone by surprise with the upcoming 1" sensor P8000.

We will see. It would be hard for it to beat a f2 lens on a larger sensor, though, unless they go f1.4 or something.

When it comes to image quality they can beat the Canon f/2 lens by just having a better sensor, which is likely. For DOF control the difference is very small assuming the Nikon is f/3 at tele. If I had to guess which of the two will have the better lens (regarding corner quality etc.) I would give Nikon better chances. But let's wait for the final specs and reliable reviews before judging

Nikon's current 1" sensor, used in the J3 and V2, is below par even for its size class. Nikon will have to make a quantum leap in sensor performance for this rumored P8000 to be able to compete with the G1X MII:

So you can get collapsible lenses for it?  How compact is it with a 24-120mm zoom attached?
