    All shot at ISO 400 at the widest available aperture and at the widest lens, at the closest distance that the camera would do autofocus lock-on.

    Camera A: (f/2.8)

    Camera B: (f/2)

    Camera C: (f/2.8)

    Camera A: (f/4)

    Camera B: (f/4)

    Camera C: (f/4)

    Now, here's the kicker:

    Camera A: Canon G12
    Camera B: Canon G1x MkII
    Camera C: Panasonic FZ200

    BTW, the A and B cameras are the same as from this post: https://www.photographerslounge.org/showthread.php?t=27803

    Cheers, Jock

    I'm quite shocked at those results.

    How did you get hold of a copy of the G1X2?

    Wow the G1Xii does far better than I would have thought. Thanks for posting!

    They are in Kentucky, USA. I pre-ordered with them, and they surprised me with early shipment.

    Cheers, Jock

    Ahhh thanks. I was not aware that shipping had started.

    I have had a play with this camera when Canon bought it into our shop to show us. It looks very impressive and I can't wait to have a good play with one.

    First pre-orders were fulfilled last week in Australia - so we have a few on the streets (though not my street) here now.

    The lack of center frame sharpness of B looks concerning to me.
