The difference though and downside with the fuji is that while it is capable of producing superb images it isn't an all rounder, there will be a lot of occasions when the flexibility of a DSLR like the 7D will get shots that the Fuji will miss.
Thanks for reminding that this thread is not about comparing DSLR and the Fuji-X- or CSC. I didn't mean to.
And I agree with you the Fuji is not all arounder especially for shooting speed. Totally Agree!! I keep a 60D, 35L and 70-200L MkII for fast actions and short/mid/tele. With the L's, the AF of 60D is nothing short of satisfying. It locks INSTANT ( not only quick) and ALL outer AF points are ACCURATE (better than 7D and sure eat the 5D/5DII). But if one falls back to the old technique, zone focus , you should be able to get many good action shots with the FUji while still miss many (lol).
Given the OP had extensive experience in Canon DSLR, DSLR's IQ, DR, Hi ISO, etc are used as reference points for the two cameras in question so the OP will understand (easier) how good or bad the Fuji-X- is(in my opinion) comparing to the DSLR in those fronts. Of course, someone who own and have long experience with the G1X can also compared it to DSLR in those areas and share their opinons.
And dont forget OP is considerings swtiching from DSLR to one of these two cameras. So comparing the fuji and CSC to DSLR is quite relevant as the intention is to help the OP to see the options.
I do not mean to offense any one who own G1X or who dont like Xpro1. G1X's IQ is very good as a point and shoot with large sensor. It is a very very nice addition to the G-series. A good casual companion for the DSLR. It goes everywhere and produce IQ comparable to 7D. But I wont drop the DSLR for the G1X. It is just too limited.
The Fuji to me is just a different class, it is a system (with some very decent pro glasses), it is as light and portable, and it is superior to the G altough it still cannot replace the DSLR totally. But if action is not your main focus, you are looking at the right camera.
