Been looking through all the options for a new camera as an upgrade to my aging Powershot S80 which has given great service and I'm still happy with... Still it would be nice to have improved quality overall. Going up to an S100 doesn't seem like a big enough jump, I'm happy with the S80 as a pocket camera, and the Mrs has a newish Lumix.
I've toyed with getting into DSLRs, looked into bridge, superzoom, compact system/mirrorless/micro 4/3rds etc etc. But I think what I'd love the most is just an uber-compact that doesn't break the bank like a Leica or perhaps an X100 (though the price is coming down on those). Manual controls and image quality are order of the day. All the reviews seem to really rate the G1X, apart from no macro to speak of and slow AF and slow continuous shooting. Those are small downsides for an uber-compact covered in manual controls and with approaching-dslr-quality.
Prices for G1X's and X100s will slowly go south so I might sit it out and bag a bargain one day... so anyone here had any practical experience of either machine, or any others I should consider?
