Photography Blog posted their full review of the brand new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III (specifications, and price in your country), Canon’s first PowerShot with an APS-C sensor and Dual Pixel AF.

From their conclusion:

Canon must have read our review of the G1 X Mark II, because all of the things that we felt were missing – the exposure compensation dial, vari-angle LCD screen and optical viewfinder – have all made a welcome return in the Mark III. We also like the fact that the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is weather-proof and can be powered via a USB compatible battery pack, instantly making it more appealing for frequent travellers, while the combination of front and rear control dials and the single lens control ring make it a snip to quickly set the main camera parameters. We’ve always been fans of Canon’s user interface on its DSLRs, and also now on the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.

In summary, the new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III can be summed up in one word – premium. It’s a premium compact camera that offers premium image quality and handling, albeit with a premium price tag to match. Read the review…

I agree, asking $1,299 is a bit too much for what otherwise is a very cool and powerful compact camera. Let’s hope the price gets down in the next months (after the holidays?).
