I used my new G1 X yesterday, It is a reasonable size for a walk-around camera, and the tilt out lcd works well. The big issue is composing a image on a sunny day. I'm not going to pay $240 for a $50 electronic viewfinder.
For example, I could not tell if the rock in the background was in focus using the rear LCD in the bright sun, and did not want to fool with figuring out how to set the aperture manually. So, Willie Willey's rock is OOF.
Then, I cut off the legs of the sax player.
Having 24mm equivalent is nice, I was quite close to the clock tower and could not get a clear view at other locations, people were everywhere. With the 24mm setting, I could get it in.
