Excerpt: I use this for personal/vacation. Nice feel to the G1X but very slow. Not good for any quick point and shoot things like a baby or moving animal. Great quality and nice feel to the camera. Probable going to sell/return it after testing for 2 weeks.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD

Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, well built
Cons: Difficult to use, Short battery life, Complicated controls/menu, viewfinder worthless, shutter lag, slow autofocus

Pros: Nice features/settings, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Summary: My macro will not focus on close-ups, even after manually setting it to macro. The video did not work, and would only take still photos while in the video setting. Other than that, great wide high quality photographs, but it is a little too large for my side pocket in comparison with my past G3, G9...
