My God, this is a thousand times uglier than previous G1X.
- Missing compensation dial? Nice!
- Missing swivel screen? Wonderful?
- Still keeping the totally useless optical viewfinder? Excellent!
Well, f2.0, 5x zoom, and 24mm are the main changes. Not minor, but still, personally, don't care too much. I hate ultra-wide shots, high ISO on prev G1X is excellent so 1-stop is not such a big deal.
One welcome change I see are the protection blades in front of the lens. With my G1X, it annoys me a bit to place the cap back again all the time.
Of course, f2.0 means larger lens so I am very curious to see the macro specs.
