    Yes in that time frame between the G11 and G15, Fuji released its X series Smile

    The G15 viewing screen is fixed. It has a faster lens and a slightly bigger sensor.
    The G11 and G12 both had very useful vari viewing screens plus a view finder. They give surprisingly good results, my wife has a G12 and get fab results.
    I think what Paul is saying is the Fuji X series are better cameras although costing three times as much.
    I bought a Fuji X-E1 to replace a Canon G1X which is in same series, its a vastly superior camera.

    If I lost all my cameras and lenses I'd be gutted, but the one I'd miss most is my little G11.

    Last time I checked the x10 was cheaper with the x20 costing a bit more.

    I believe the x20 is the only compact with both a real viewfinder and also that shows the camera`s settings, shutter speed, aperture etc, etc.

    I'm very tempted by the X20 but my G11 has a longer reach, which I like. Sad

    Its has slightly more reach but the lens is pretty slow, f2.8 - f4.5 opposed to f2 - f2.8.

    Sorry Paul, I was thinking of the X-E1, X100s and X Pro when I said three times as much. Have a good look at the X10 and X20. You really need to handle before buying, what swung the X-E1 for me was the feel, the controls and info displayed in the view find which, whilst electronic, is very good. The Canon GX1 and G12 have (for me) fiddly controls and a poor excuse for a viewfinder with no info displayed, which if you are used to a DSLR may be something you would miss.

    The original x100`s can still be picked up and quite cheaply now, as compacts go there is still not a lot that can reach it, unless you throw in the x100s.
