I am tempted. If it is faster than than G1X, I may just go for it. I was really hoping that Canon would be going in this direction.

Kidraver: I am weighing up buying one for street use, maybe some camera designer will come up with the ultimate street shooter, something discreet, the flippy screen is handy, the tuff body is a boon, the slow focusing is a no,no. the big sensor makes the effort rewarding, but yea a small fast to use street shooter, thats what i would like.

Look no further, AF speed is just fine for street photography

JacobGreen: How much is it. I want to buy a camera, one of the most important thing is that the price must within my price range.

Go to Google, type G1X, or check with a dealer close to you

Joe11: Simply add same sensor type of the X-Pro1 in a little bit smaller size to the X10, increase the price of this new X10 by maybe 200-300 Euros. Then all will be happy! This is what most are dreaming about! Hopefully Fujifilm also reads this post and proceeds accordingly. Thank you very much in advance.

4x zoom extreme?

mcslsk: It all comes down for me to IQ/size/price. IQ is very good, size without a good pancake zoom bigger than what I would be looking for, price way higher than any difference in IQ there may be between this and the G1X.

It's good to go for IQ. Still wonder who the target customer group is at this price. It is not a bird (compact), it's not a plane ( fast DSLR), it is Supercamera (IQ and price).

If Fuji manages to make it a 2.0 zoom at the same size, range and IQ (which I doubt) you will hear my praise.

That's what Canon has done with the G1X. The trick for Fuji will be to develop a decent zoom lens for that size of sensor in a small camera.

Seahster: Hi everyone,

I've been a happy owner of the X-Pro1 for a few weeks now, and have been shooting and documenting my thoughts on this camera on http://handcarryonly.com/tagged/fuji in case anyone is interested.

I would say it is not a camera for everyone and every situation but for street and travel photography, it is where it truly excels, with the high IQ and low weight package.

Adrian

I have some images of mine on the Canon forum. I do like the look and feel of the images that you have taken a lot.

The zoom lens of the G1X is excellent. Let's see what Fuji will offer.

boho: dpreview: "... and comfortable rubber grips"
sorry mates! I don't buy it.
it looks to me almost as impossible to hold the G1X with one hand by the grip as it is to hold the G12, which, by the way, is impossible. and this is a big set-back for me, because a camera with tilting screen can't hang on your neck, because the strap hangs in between the screen and your eyes. and if you can't hold in one hand by the grip, so how do you hold it?
this is just a lousy ergonomy.

It may look impossible to you - but did you try it? I can hold the camera with my right hand just fine. Thumb on the back, pointer finger on shutter release, rest of fingers (3 in my case) on front around grip.

Great images, and the low light, high ISO is performance of the cam is great. I've been looking at the NEX7, the G1X and the X-pro1 and decided for the G1X because of size/IQ combination (and, I must admit, price).

Just Ed: It's tempting as I get very tired of carrying my D90 and backpack full of equipment. However, the lens is just too slow for me. Never could deal with the slow kit 3.5-5.6 lenses...this is of that ilk. A shorter zoom range and faster glass might well get my attention.

Forgot to add that I looked at this camera when my local dealer first got them in and it just reinforced my opinion of the slow lens. The demo camera had difficulty focusing on items within the shop which were at normal room lighting levels. Eventually it would get them in focus, but it took too long to be useful for my kind of photography.

Can't confirm the focus issue indoors under normal indoor lighting conditions. May be you experienced the close focus limitations of the lens and did not switch to close up mode? Happened to me in the beginning all the time because I was so used to the G11.

High ISO images are very impressive!

Guthega: OK folks! Time to lighten up. The pros and cons of the G1 X have been covered ad nauseam and some of the posters here are just being trolls. That might have been intentional or it might not. If the following page doesn't make you smile please be advised that you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Mr AB: according to http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/G1X/G1XA.HTM seems that G1X has some light leaks problems that Canon also knows... maybe are not so heavy but could annoying someone.

In any case I think that this camera is well featured with some rather small drawbacks.

Look a little further down, it's been discussed, it is not an issue.

Steven Rounds: In regards to the "Silver Award" given to the Canon G1 X by DP Review in its test review...check out this link:

Note that if you search DP Review for "Canon PowerShot G1 X light leak", you'll come up with NO links or discussions of the problem...what the hell is going on at DP Review? Is it run by Canon fanboyz?

Let's talk from lawyer to lawyer :-)
It is a non issue. Period.
