A bit steep price wise but as a very happy g1x mk11 owner this could be a stonker of a camera if it really is that much better.

I own a G7X MarkII and I am very happy with it. The camera mentioned above is $1299 vs the G7X $699 price tag. Here is a side by side compare of each.

The EVF and articulating LCD screen are a big plus but at twice the price???

I have added the g1x mk11 to the list :)
I think will wait until a few more reports have come out and maybe for the prices to drop.

24 Megapixels with that big sensor is a big plus should be able to get loads of detail and a very high IQ. Once the honeymoon period is over and the price drops could be a good buy compared to the top end Sony's and Fuji's.

I wonder if the extra "cropping " ability because of the higher pixel count will make up for the loss of optical zoom.
I do wish they had put an external mic sound input socket on though,the inbuilt mic is pretty awful outside.

Most probably a 6000 x 4000 image you should be be able do a pretty good crop. Also, although spec wise the lens is slower it sounds pretty good for grabbing a lot of light onto the sensor, so I would imagine the noise is improved, not sure about the depth of field though.

It'll be awesome after it hits the refurb page and gets it's first sale. My guess $749 or so next Christmas on the refurb site. At the end of the day it's still just an 80d/M5 sensor with a slow lens in a pocket frame. I can't see it holding that high of value for all that long.
