I want to see a comparison between the Canon G1X Mk II and the Sony A6000. Any preliminary thoughts?

Unfortunately it seems Canon has fallon so far behind in the sensor and body wars they no longer are worried about catching back up, let alone becoming the leader. With that being said I would speculate that they are in real danger of losing enough ground to Sony/Nikon/Oympus/Pentax that once lost they'll never be able to make it back up.
I hate to say it but Canon will be my secondary system after I order either the Nikon D800 or D600 this weekend. I'll keep a couple of my Canon lens for general use with a t2i for out on the street photography but the Nikon system will be the bread and butter system from now on. I've played with files from the 5D MIII, D800, D600 and the Sony A7/A7r and the 5D MIII files just don't impress me as to how much you can push or pull from the raw data. In this case more is much better.
I am doing what you are doing. Just sold my 6D, 24-105, 100-400 and ordered the Nikon D610, 16-35, 24-120 for my landscape and walk around usage. But I am still keeping the 5DII and some nice Canon glasses. See my signature.
