    Full HD, really?

    The price is the deal killer with this camera. It’s a good camera, but at this price one can do better, including within Canon’s own product lineup.

    • CW Steve

      Canon sells the M100 with kit lens for around $500, how can they ask $1300 for the g1xmk3?

  • Andrew Martin

    Purely as a photographic tool this is compelling, but not at that price. I like a compact, large sensor, fixed lens camera conceptually, and it seems like they nailed the ergonomics on this one. With all the excellent 1″ sensor cameras, reasonably priced mirrorless, the lx100, the Fuji x100 and x70 cameras out there though this is a tough sell. It’s a shame Canon keeps crippling it’s cameras for video, this would have been a great model to end that trend with.

  • Peter Joy

    Everyone is complaining about the price… the Fuji X100F is the same price as this camera. This Canon is smaller, has a zoom lens, is weather-sealed and has a tilt screen. I think this is excellent value for the money.

    • Wade Marks

      I would argue that the Fuji X100F is also overpriced in this market. One can get better value from Fuji’s other products, not to mention other brands. When the first X100 was released, the pricing didn’t seem so high due to the nature of the competition and the styling of the camera.

      Given the current market, the X100F is not a good value. Your points about the Canon vs the Fuji are interesting; I admit I never thought of that. But my conclusion is that simply both cameras are way over priced. The Fuji X100F in no way justifies the pricing of the Canon G1X mark II.

      In this market, having a crop sensor fixed lens camera for over $1000 is simply not viable.

      • Peter Joy

        Let me tell you how viable it is – the X100F has been one of Fuji’s best selling cameras since it was released in February 2017. Look at the Amazon sales rankings and interviews with Fuji managers. Canon released the G1X mark III to compete in that very market – compact APS-C. And they did an excellent job of it.

        You may think it’s not good value. Market says otherwise.

        • Wade Marks

          Fuji has clearly put priority on their MILC’s over the X100 series; look at the number of new releases in both cameras and lenses. As for Amazon sales rankings; hard to extrapolate that into overall market data. My guess is that for Fuji their MILC systems are now their best sellers and best revenue generators.

          The X100 series will continue for Fuji because it’s part of their legacy now, it has a certain appeal that goes beyond just the camera’s merits, the look, the feel, the retro design. Canon has no such advantage with their G1X line.

          • Peter Joy

            Amazon Digital Camera rankings has X100F at 62 and X-T20 at a distant 99. The X100F is Fuji’s best selling camera. So I think you’re blowing steam my friend.
