PhotographyBlog completed their review and gave it 4 out of 5 stars. They conclude;
Putting all comparisons aside for the moment and looking at the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II on its own though and it’s a very likeable camera. Its small pocket-friendly size, plus the viewfinder and screen combination make it a very pleasant holiday or travel camera. It’s nice to use, with a good array of buttons and dials, plus a good handgrip for making it feel secure in the hand.
If you like to capture the odd video, having uncropped 4K is good - and while some will be disappointed not to have an external mic input, for family videos and the like, the inbuilt mic is perfectly adequate.
Although there’s a lot to like about this camera, there’s also a few negative points which deserve to be mentioned. Battery life is a little limited, especially for a travel camera, while it could do with more customisation options to change how various buttons work. Autofocusing is decent with static subjects, but as soon as you introduce a bit of movement, then the results aren’t quite so good - especially disappointing for a camera that offers such fast burst shooting.
