Just collected a G1X Mk. II and waiting for the battery to charge.
Bit of a forced purchase really as we are going on a lengthy trip to Australia and New Zealand soon and my wife's/backup to my DSLR a G16 has stopped playing.
Despite little and careful use it has developed a focusing fault which I doubt will be repaired in time and will probably be uneconomic anyway. Pity really as I really like the G16 and was expecting a good few years use out of it.
First impressions (didn't get to see one before purchasing) is that the G1X is a well built and heavy piece of kit which I'm sure will deliver the goods.
