Well gee John, you don't suppose the 'Canon' brand has anything to do with it?
Well golly Lenny, you don't suppose the quality
might have something to do with that 'brand name' carrying weight, do you?
Rave reviews aside....the image quality is the same or negligable..so why spend more for the Canon?
Rave reviews aside
? Why would I push the rave reviews aside? That's like saying, "Let's push all of the facts aside, because facts don't matter to me; I'd still like to continue arguing." (LOL)
Why spend more for the Canon? Because the build quality is better, the reviews have been better, and it is more versatile.
It has LESS of some features the LX2 has.
What does that mean, "it has less of some features?" The G9 has MORE features, period. What you're trying to say is that the LX2 has features the G9 doesn't, and while those features may be more important to your individual needs, they are not to mine.
The LX2 also shoots 16:9 aspect ratio. It shoots 28mm wide. The LX2 is small/pocketable. THey are two different cameras.
No kidding? The LX2 and the G9 are "two different cameras?" Wow, the logic of my universe just crumbled. All along I was thinking they were the same camera
Um, anyway, the features you just mentioned might very well be important to you, and they may well justify your
gravitating toward the LX2, but this does not make the LX2 the "better" overall camera, or the leader of anything; it just makes the LX2 better for you
The only point of yours I agree on is that it is used more by more people.I think your other points are nonsense.
The G9 is used my more people, because it appeals to more people, and has more features than the LX2 ... which means your
points are what pan-out to nonsense. I mean, wasn't it you
who originally said, "The LX2 is SO clearly the leader
," and yet you just conceded right here the fact that the G9 is used by more people and gets more rave reviews? So who, really, is full of (nonsense) in this discussion?
My point is that it is the better camera by sheer virtue that it is cheaper to buy...
So "cheapness to buy" is now the bottom line of determining camera quality, eh? So I guess, by your logic, disposable cameras are the best to be had
I'm sorry, who
is full of (nonsense) again?
As far as it being a follower...ahem..it was released over a year ago.
Ahem, but the Canon G9 succeeded the G7, which in turn succeeded the G6, which itself was the first P&S to offer RAW capability ...
So again I ask you WHO is the leader here ... and who is the follower?
