Anyone have this canon gx5 camera yet? Any good?

Looks a bit bulky, view finder is in the center which looks nice, and grip to hold the camera.

Ergonomically, it's not as pocketable as a G7X or RX100III/IV but it has a hotshoe, great for the odd time you want to attach a little flash unit, awkwardly large, effectively better than a popup flash.
G5X has a viewfinder where the G7X does not (longer handheld shutter speeds by virtue of technique?)
G5X has a fully articulating touch screen and longer zoom, RX100 is not touch screen. Sony menu is not as intuitive as Canon's.
Sensors in all 3 same size and very similar, but I've been reading the Zeiss lens on the RX100 is better than the Canon's.

Wait a couple of months for the G7X Mark II to come out because the faster processor fixes the focusing issues. I think I'm gonna hold off for an upgrade of Panasonic's LX100 (something that improves its focus & matches the G7X's IS). 4k FTW.

The G9X is more compact and closer to and newer than the G7X.
