">this page on the website</a></div>You wrote that the Canon G1X is "The best compact camera ever made", but you seem to have forgotten the Fuji X100, which is less high, less deep and only slightly wider. If the G1X is to be considered a compact camera, then the Fuji also has to be.
The Fuji is never positioned as a 'compact' or 'point and shoot' camera for the mass consumer market. The Fuji is much too expensive, lacks zoom and is deemed to complex for this market segment. It is always positioned as a premium enthusiast high end camera. More for the rangefinder market segment. Also, it is not only about size. Otherwise, why would Fuji bother to create the X10 for the compact market.
