Image Quality Comparisons with Canon G1 X and Competitors


The folks at have published an excellent image comparison test with the Canon G1 Xand a batch of its competitors, including the Canon G12, Canon T3i, Nikon J1, Olympus E-P3, and Sony NEX-5N.

The lab shots were captured at base ISO and then at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200. You can read the report and see all of the photos here: Canon PowerShot G1 X Preview.

Bottom line: The Canon G1 X definitely held its own, or surpassed, all of these cameras in this test.

I think if Canon used that sensor in a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, they would make a killing, particularly with their reputation.

It just seems a shame to waste it with that lens.
