PowerShot / Re: Canon G1x or Sony RX100 for vacation and light duty

If you are going to carry all that stuff than get the RX100.

In my case I sold all "that stuff" and took a G1X, 320EX, and an S95 on my last trip.  Different strokes ...

In my old age (66) and with a terrible back, I haven't carried more than one body and one lens at the same time for several years.  I might travel with multiple lenses, but I only carry one at a time around my neck.   Even that got to be to heavy, so I switched to the G1X.

It just doesn't seem to make sense to use a larger sensor and compete with their DSLRs.  Plus it would be large.

I also don't think Canon wants to "conceed" to 4/3s.  The G1X sensor size seems more logical to me.  Physics means the camera would be a little larger than 4/3s and the lenses would be also, but if Canon could keep everything close to 4/3s size ... they would hit a home run.   

I've had my G1X since the first came out and have since sold my 60D 15-85 ++.  For my needs, I have found the the IQ to as good (or better) than the 60D with 15-85.  These were shot as JPEGs ...
