dpreview: G1X Mark III vs G7X Mark II shootout

DPReview just did a shootout comparison in between the G7X Mark II and the G1X Mark III.

The G1X Mark III proved to be the much superior landscape camera, where it's wider dynamic range simply outclasses it's smaller cousin.

DPReview's takeaway;

This comparison is, of course, purposely limited to the image quality impact of the lenses and sensors on these two cameras. There's a lot of other features that separate the G1 X III and G7 X II, including that the former offers better dynamic range, weather sealing, an electronic viewfinder, a flash hot shoe, a fully articulating screen, and Dual Pixel AF (and, disappointingly, Canon hasn't updated its G5 X model, which would have been a closer match to the G7 X II in the first place).

If all those other aspects of the G1 X III are worth the price premium to you, by all means, pick up a G1 X III. It's a lovely camera, with excellent handling and is capable of great image quality under a wide variety of scenarios.

Here comes the 'but' though... if you're looking for (in our opinion) a better value, or you're looking for an even smaller camera, or you shoot in low or marginal light more often than bright daylight, the G7 X II is almost certain to be a better fit, at a cheaper price. And this is why we just weren't blown away by the G1 X III in our review; you greatly reduce the benefits of such a large and expensive sensor if you restrict its access to light to squeeze it into such a compact body.
