The Fuji is 25% more expensive than the Canon, how are these cameras comparable? What's next, a comparison between a Canon SX130 and a Nikon D7000? Totally different beasts. I've got a preorder placed for the G1X to add to my bag as a portable, travel camera when I don't want to use my 7D. I wanted something with some type of zoom, large, high quality sensor, manual controls, hotshoe, IS, and moderately fast glass... the G1X fits the bill perfectly. Something I can stick in my jacket pocket while I travel and still get great photos. The Fuji might be great if you're fine taking shots at one focal length.. I don't think that will work well for travel.
