I received mine on Thursday June 30, 2016. This camera is quite incredible for it's size. The only two shortcomings I have found are that the macro is no closer than 2" from subject (Not that big a deal with the resolution this shoots in) and not the camera's fault but Canon's is that the charger has an extension cord rather than the flip out plug of past chargers. But there are two chargers being produced by Canon, the one I received with the cord CB-2LHT and the traditional flip out plugin of CB-2LH. Why they didn't put the latter in with the camera just astounds me, I don't want to carry an extension cord with any charger.

But on the flip side the camera has a USB Micro OTG port that if say you have a Samsung phone cord will charge the battery in the camera. The manual excludes this.

UPDATE The macro on this camera is well mediocre. The range is 2" to 1.5'. At 2" the peripherals of the picture are out of focus and what is in focus is mediocre at best. My G12, G16, SX280 and SX700 all have superior (Actually have macro) macro to what this camera has. I couldn't get a clear pic of the tip of a fountain pen with this camera. With any of the previous cameras mentioned it would have not only been excellent, but would have provided detail not visible to the human eye. IT is hard to believe for this money that Canon released this camera and didn't tell anyone about this. I posted a review of this camera on Canon's website and they never published it. Likely because of the intermittent release of this item they don't want anything to interfere with that.

For myself, I have no interest in macro. But your Concours d' Elegance shots are excellent. Looks like they were taken with a dslr.

I like the camera but I'm concerned about no view finder. Not sure what the shooting experience will be without one.
How do you like composing with the LCD? Does it work well in bright sunlight?

I have been using the G series cameras for sometime and do not miss the view finder at all. This has an exceptional LCD that works well in all light and it tilts in about any direction to further assist in minimizing glare. The LCD's also are what you see to the outside perimeter of the screen is what you shoot, very accurate. I agree also on the quality of the photo being close to DSLR and it fits nicely in my front cargo pocket.

Well that's good news. Hopefully I can have the G7XII by end of summer.

You might want to consider the G5X before you make your decision. The G5X has the same optics and sensor as does the G7X MKII and it has an Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). To me the G5X is like a miniature DSLR. I highly recommend it. One caution it does have a short battery life (~210 shots) so a second battery is a must. Here is a review/comparsion of the G5X v. the G7X MKII:

Ok, more food for thought. I'll look into it. Thanks!

The G7X Mark II has the new Digic 7 processor, which virtually provides another step in the controls.
