Some of these pictures, while excellent, seem to be over-saturated. Is this a natural function of the Jpeg processing or a vivid setting?

Did any of you ditch the DSLR in favor of this camera? If so, what are your thoughts?

I love the responsiveness of my DSLR. It's fast as can be, but portable it isn't.


Thank you. bw!

I love the G1X, no doubt, but the responsiveness can not be compared to a good DSLR, not even close. Switching from a G1X to anything from a 40D upwards is like going from a bicycle to a ferrari in terms of speed.

I still have my DSLRs for my pro work. G1X is my carry around camera, I use it for snapshots of the grandkids and landscape. The above lighthouse pic is was edited on my iPad with iPhoto and Snapseed. I downsized and sharpened in PS for the web.

I'm hoping for the day I can dump the DSLRs for a lightweight camera/lenses, but the G1X isn't it. I love it for it's IQ and am disappointed in it's macro capabilities. All things I knew before I bought. I believe it won't be long and we'll have packable cameras that perform as well as our DSLRs.

I hope your right Sally. I have as 60d and a G11. I love the portability of the G11 but find when I use it to photograph my wee grandson who is two often as not I manage to capture the back of his head rather than that fleeting cute expression. But then I find carting thenDSLR and a couple of lenses around a bit tiresome. So roll on a compact that is more responsive than the G1x.

On the way to hound dog trailing this evening took a few pics in the low evening light.

If the AF speed was there + a few other mostly software issues then the G1X could go a long way to replacing a DSLR, but being a fixed-lens camera it's never going to have quite the same flexibility. Purely on an IQ basis my G1X will be taking over from a soon-to-be-departing 500D + 17-55mm f2.8.

For me the camera (and associated system) that WILL supersede all of my remaining DSLR gear is the Olympus E-M5.

Re: saturation. I can't speak for anyone using the jpeg output but for the RAWs you can just make the images as saturated or un-saturated as you want. The G1X does apply the same jpeg colour profiles as any other Powershot or IXUS camera so I suspect that they will be more saturated by default than the picture styles available on an EOS camera.

28-112mm is quite a bit of range and will more than satisfy most people. If Canon were to upgrade the AF to at least m4/3 levels, then this can be the main camera for most casual users. If Canon eliminates the OVF and improve the AF for the G2X, they'll have another winner on their hands.

Yup, faster AF and replace OVF with EVF = win.

A days holiday gave me the opportunity to ride up to Lake Windermere, managed to take a shot early morning when the light and morning rich colours are at there best.
