I love my 80D with 15-85 and 70-200 combo and the image quality is fantastic I'm just tired of carrying it around. Normally the best photo opportunities I have are out hiking but find myself leaving it home and taking my G15 which comes nowhere near the image quality. So with the G1X1 I'm getting a little closer at least and will be able to get some decent quality pics when I'm out hiking.

Getting a G1X3 would essentially give me similar quality to the 80D. Plus I'd have the benefit of having it with me more often and not be burdened by the weight.

I agree completely.
Here is a test shot outside the camera store... It's not quite as crisp as the original image but it gives you an idea.

Okay this is confirmation of why I bought the Powershot G1X III. It's simple really... considering both cameras share the same APS-C sensor and produce loverly 24 MP images, both cameras have a zoom lens (albeit the G1X is slightly less on the long side), The 80D with 15-85mm zoom weighs 1375 grams while the G1X3 weighs less than 400 grams and both cameras offer full control over the picture taking experience etc.

JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE SIZE DIFFERENCE... WHICH CAMERA WOULD YOU PREFER TO LUG AROUND ALL DAY?

Because of lens geometry, one feature that the G-series has is that all of them do exceptionally well when taking close-ups. But my old G12 and my new G5 X do not do so well when focusedon infinity.

As you have the G1X and the 80D, how do you erate them when shooting landscapes?

Too early to say. I've only had the G1X3 for a few days but what I can say is the noise is pretty much identical in both cameras and so it should be with the same sensor.
I see no reason the G1X3 won't take very good landscapes although personally, that's not what I bought it for.
The fact is with a zoom range of (full frame equivalent) 24mm to 72mm it will cover 90% or more of my travel needs.

After two Sony RX100s failed with the same issue at the same age, I purchased a G1X III as my travel camera.
What a great piece of kit this DSLR nearly-in-a-pocket, is.

Two examples from completely different genres of photography.
