I use the inconspicuous LowePro Dash20 mounted on my belt. The M+22 fit just fine, it's reasonably quick to pull it out and put back.

I didn't really care for it to be honest. It just wasn't comfortable to me when shooting and I actually preferred the original grip. Having said that, it did make holding the camera via the grip easier. But the bigger factor for me was comfort while shooting.
I realize I'm in the SMALL minority with that opinion and if you've used one of his grips before and liked it, I can't see why you wouldn't like the grip for the M.
Is there more profit to be made in the high-end market?
Yes. For two reasons. The bodies themselves, we can sell at a higher price but also we sell more lenses with higher-end cameras, so overall it’s more profitable. Our research shows that the attachment rate for a high-end camera like the X-Pro 1 is around 3.8, whereas cameras like the X-A1 it’s more like 1.2. With low-end cameras people often just stick with the kit lens.
Comparing the G1 X Mark II to an
SLR or mirrorless camera
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II is a compact digital camera with a fixed integrated lens. This means that many aspects of performance can be optimised for this lens. Sharpness, distortion, lens zooming position, sensor can all be optimised for the integrated lens. This kind of optimisation is not found in cameras with interchangeable lenses, especially those with lenses of f/2.0 or larger.
