I just finished looking at the size of this thing. It is as almost as big as the T3i/T2i. (and weighs just as much 19oz) So much for the "pocket camera" theory.
It looks like a sweet camera. But really, for something THAT size (and price) you might as well carry around a Rebel, and if you do, you can at least change lenses when you need to!!!
I have nothing against the G1X. I have something against the price Canon wants for it considering the fact that a T2i has more megapixels, is almost the same size (within reason as a Rebel), you cannot change lenses (BIG factor) and the fact the T2i is cheaper at this time!
I am sure the market will support it, or at least for Canon's sake I hope so. But hey, even Ford made the Edsel. (j/k)
Personally, I am not interested. However, the weight you state is only for the Rebel body. Try attaching a lens with similar focal length to the G1X to your Rebel, and see if you can find a pocket large enough to fit it in ...
