Indeed it does not blow the G1X out of the water! The G1X blows the Fuji Camera out of the water!
1. The G1X is made by Canon. That alone counts for a whole point.
2. The G1X can change focal lengths without changing lenses.
3. The G1X has a father maximum focal length.
4. The G1X costs 2,000.00 less or so after the three lenses
So, the G1X clearly blows the fuji thing way out of the water.
The real point is that the G1X is a walk around, landscape, people, macro, everything, one size fits all camera. It doesn't need and isn't supposed to have a broad aperture. Much of what I would shoot with this camera would be with a narrower aperture anyway. One doesn't shoot landscapes at f1.4, if one can help it, usually... But, having a compact with a f1.4 would be helpful. If I had the budget, I would buy both instantly, and recommend you do if you can! Instead, I am saving up my dinero for some lighting gear, and maybe a new lens... I would really like a super super telephoto lens (600 F4!!!), but that's not coming soon... Maybe the Sigma 500 4.5? Anyway, this post is really beginning to rant, because I just got done with a really bad night of work, and I'm tired, so it's time to quit while I'm ahead!
