It’s been a while since Canon released the G1 X camera, and the company is announcing an update in the form of the G1 X Mk II today for CP+. At the heart of the camera is a new 1.5″ 12.8MP CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 6 processor, ISO range of 100-12,800, a new 9 aperture blade f2-f3.9 lens with an equivalent zoom range of 24-120mm, 31 AF points, and a 3 inch tilting LCD. Canon also has a brand new external EVF that mounts into the hot shoe for the camera.

The new G1 X Mk II also boasts WiFi connectivity, NFC, and a $799.99 price tag when it drops in April. For what it’s worth, the Ricoh GR is still cheaper and has an APS-C sized sensor.

More photos of the camera are after the jump.
