    in many ways the Sony rx100 V will be more practical due to size – yes Canon has larger sensor but then again it has a slower lens – yes EVF will be nicer in Canon – but the G1X m3 is not really pocketable except big overcoats –
    Sony has 4k and lots of video features – and it is $300 less – I really think the G1x m3 will not be a huge seller – especially once Sony will announce their Sony RX100mVI soon –
