There's alot of goodness with the G1X Mark III especially when you consider it's size.
ePhotoZine was certainly positive in their review;
The Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III has taken the great usability of a Canon DSLR, and the 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor with phase-detection AF built-in, and squished it into a compact camera, whilst maintaining excellent handling and usability. They've also put a 3x zoom lens (24-72mm equivalent) on the front, with a relatively bright f/2.8 aperture at the wide-angle end of the lens.
What Canon is offering is unique, giving a 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, and a 3x optical zoom lens, in a compact camera not much bigger than other compact cameras. We started this review by asking if Canon had made a true miniature DSLR in the size of a compact camera, and from the results, we would say they've succeeded. Whilst the camera doesn't have the battery life to match a DSLR, this can quickly be solved by the purchase of a spare battery or two.
The camera offers an electronic viewfinder, as well as a 3inch vari-angle touch-screen. You can use the touch-screen to set the focus position as well as change settings in the menus. As a compact camera, the electronic viewfinder is fairly small, but is still useful in bright conditions, when you might not want to use the screen. If you don't need 4K video recording or ultra high-speed continuous shooting, and the 9fps continuous shooting of the G1 X Mark III is enough for you, then the camera should meet your needs. If you're looking for a compact camera, that has Digital SLR image quality, then the Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III is the closest thing you're likely to find.
