Thought I'd best post here instead of hijacking someone else's thread. I love my Powershot G12. I've had it since it's release in 2011. I loved the vari-angle screen, the level of control, the hotshoe and ability to add a flash. It was jacket-pocketable (definitely not trouser pocketable). I've got a 270EXII flash and a filter adapter + ND filters to use with it. I use it more than my 70D. But the lens coating is scratched so I get flares in sunlight, and it's only 12MP. There's also an appreciable lag between pressing the shutter and getting the photo. It's low light performance, whilst good for the time, is poor now. I had hoped the G5X was the successor but it looks like it has some issues, especially with shutter lag and focussing (according to dpreview). I've looked at the RX100 series (probably III or maybe the IV at a stretch) but there's no hotshoe for external flash and it doesn't have as much reach. I'm open to suggestions or recommendations. I've abandoned thoughts of brand loyalty. I use my G12 wherever I don't take my 70D - holidays, parties, family gatherings, days out etc. I use it preference to my iPhone 6S.
