This a comment for this page on the website
"You have a reflex-quality sensor in camera of the same volume as a G11."
No you don't, the GX1 is much bigger than the G-series.

Define 'much bigger'

In these pictures from DPReview, they seem to be very close in size.

From the top view, The G1X even manages to have a thinner body than the G12, except for its slightly potruding lens.

This is amazing don't you think?

If you ignore the depth for comparison purposes, the G1X is 10% larger in width x height.  If you don't count the lens it is thinner. So, not counting the lens it probably is similar in volume.  With the lens it is 35% deeper.

Also, the G1X is 33% heavier than the G12.  On the other hand it does seem like a really nice camera.

Seems as if retractable lens could be a necessity in order to keep the overall size down.
Even if its bigger than rest o g series it must still be very portable compared to dslrs.
Until there's actual field reviews  and I have it in my own hands to try I know its all speculation on my part. Still I have to wonder if slightly faster glass would make a big impact. Perhaps if this model is well received Canon would make the follow up a bit faster.

While the price may or may not be to high it does give me pause. I can get some nice glass with that $$$.

I love what I'm seeing though.

Lol just thought "make bigger, stronger, faster and better" wasn't that like the old six million dollar man theme?

good luck getting a zoom lens faster than f2.8?  Even on their professional lenses, the fastest is 2.8.  The cost to get a zoom lens faster than 2.8 is huge.  It'll never happen on a point & shoot

Sorry, late answer, there seems to be no automatic notification of messages.
OK, GX1 is not "much bigger", but only "bigger" than the G-series, but then again these are only my terms. However saying that they have the same volume is false as well.

I'm not that familiar with the GX1 camera, But the Canon G12 model is very familiar to me actually I have one. By the way I've checked on the link of lightsabre but it's not working.... the page is not found.
