I really think that Canon crippled this by calling it a "G" series camera.
It's an awful lot more ; there's a gem of a camera trying to come out.
I've always loved my Canon G's, right up through the G10. Didn't care for the build quality of the G11/12, and then along came μ43. Looks like I might have to give the G1x a more careful consideration. Great work displayed here!
