I guess you didn't like the part about:

Canonitis
Noun/Latin Origin
- To never go the full step you really need to innovate and take over the market.


Take over the market from whom?   Who is the market leader for digital still cameras and dSLRs?

Some never let data get in the way of their beliefs.  They much prefer there own anecdotal acquisitions.

It seems that neuroanatomist asked a legitimate question, one which should have had a verifiable answer backed by data but you chose to brush it off.  Doesn't speak well for your position.

I hope you're wrong . . . but I read it as backing up neruo's point.  It's easy enough to search for a simple answer to the question:

+1...In addition to AF speed, I like the idea of having EVF for afternoon shooting.

I still like my 5D III + 40pancake. Still, it's nice to have a pocketable camera for an afternoon walk sometimes.

Agreed, even a evf is better than none at all, and the built-in evf of the RXIII is very appealing.  I really miss one on my G1X MK II, but have no plans to buy the evf as of yet.

You are probably right.  I probably misread it.  Thanks for the link, it says exactly what I thought all along.  Canon may have some faults but they are still an industry leader.  Apologies for my lack of understanding.

The board has gotten weird and unfriendly lately.  It's understandable.

I'm still curious to see how this stacks up against the S1xx cameras and other "G" class cameras.  I literally only have an iPhone and a 5Dmk3 now for cameras, having sold the other stuff or given the P&S stuff to my ex.

I haven't commented on this forum for a while (even though I read it regularly) because the attitude of most people here. The notion that you have to be a total Canon fanboy to have legitimacy to post here, is absurd at best and does nothing to help the end user nor Canon.


I am not the casual photographer like many here, I make my living from photography and my work is published in magazines like Vogue so it might be possible that I know a few things.


That being said, NO I don't own a G7X, but I do agree with the Camera Store's assessment of Canon as a company lately. They seem to put just enough features on their cameras to stay above water, but never go that extra mile to make a ground-breakingly outstanding product. When compared to other products on the market, Canon always seems to be following not leading, which is a shame. I absolutely loath their "play it safe" attitude toward product development.


I own and shoot with all Canon gear (except for my recently purchased Phase One) and I'm generally happy with it, but it does not mean it's all perfect. For example, the rubber zoom ring on my new 24-70 MkII dislodged itself from the lens barrel and is now warped and in need of repair. Are you kidding me?!!! Unacceptable for a lens I paid over $2,000 for.


It should also be noted that I am regularly an early adopter of all Canon gear and usually own one while most people are still sitting on forums discussing specs. I was one of the first people in the world to own the original 7D, the 5D Mark III and the 1DX as well as various lenses. Again, I am happy with most of my Canon gear and the 1DX's low light performance continues to astonish me, but in no way do I think all Canon gear is perfect and I think the people on this forum should have a more open minded attitude toward possible flaws and imperfections and not just write anyone who brings them up as unknowledgeable and just a trolling. You are not helping Canon make better products by defending their flaws and/or shortcomings.

Thank you very much for sharing your practical and experience-based opinion!
The best I've read on this forum for a long time! :D

Just wanted to post a few more shots of the G7X today. They were pretty good but for me the AF just is too slow when I am used to a dslr. Wanted to post a few anyway.

Looks like it's sensor is doing pretty well in DxOmark's testing

too bad about the other little foibles

Yeah the sensor seems great except the af performance of the camera. Really its a nice camera but it just is not for me. I need pictures that are consistantly in focus.

That's just weird.  Never saw any issue like that with the S100.

You can't fool me.  That is not a picture of the G7X.  That's a dog.  ;D
