I have been using my G1X on vacation and have to say I am a little disappointed. Although I did know about the lack of incredible Macro capabilities of earlier G cameras, I never thought I would miss it as much as I have been missing it! Also I feel that the camera is not wide enough as I find myself constantly having to back off to take pictures that on my other G cameras (or S100) would not have to. Also the pictures don't seem to be that much of an advantage over the much smaller sensors on previous cameras and the AF is just plain SLOW and it is hard to get a crisp picture, especially in lower light. Maybe I have been spoiled by the 5DIII (using it a lot prior to this trip), but somehow I expected more from the much larger sensor. At this form factor I am beginning to think that a G15 or a G16 is simply a better bet in a much smaller package to boot.
