Whilst I've no doubt the G1X II is capable of producing nice images (in the right hands...), it does find itself in an unusual place... with size and weight certainly similar (or more..!) to most mirrorless camera's (NEX,G,EPL etc...)- many of which are less expensive and have obvious advantages...
Whilst it may perform well in a studio (where speed is not so much of an issue..), I very much doubt anyone would buy one for that specific purpose,probably going with a DSLR and fast prime..!
Hard to see where it's strength lies relative to the obvious alternatives....
Is the AF good enough (fast and accurate) for street photography....? Maybe that's its forte.... though without a viewfinder....
