IMO the combination of largish sensor and fast moderate zoom makes this an ideal camera for when I need stealthy quality. My only question is its responsiveness. All the features in the world mean nothing to me if it is a slug at focusing and shot to shot times.
+1. The most sensible response from a real and serious user.
The 70D live view focusing is very fast. But its shot to shot time is ridiculously long compared to many mirrorless cameras out there. Hopefully the G1X II is sensible in this department.
If the G1X II performs well, it's like packaging the 6D + 24-105 lens into a much smaller and lighter load. Ideal for traveling. Much better than RX100 (faster lens + bigger sensor = better high ISO and DOF control). Like what another poster said, I will wait for price to drop... just a matter of time
