Good choice for you. I am going to do the reverse. I am alway tagged with my 60D most of the time. Whenever the weather is nice or great situation appeared, I get it out but I feel like not spontaneous as approach. I think the G1X will give me this capability to stop my bicycle and shoot rapidly that I am missing. To conclude, I would say that we want what we not have. Maybe I will do the reverse later. And it is not a photography anymore :)
Inspirations and opportunities ...

Honestly - the G1X is a fantastic camera - I still miss "her".

I got my Canon 40 Pancake as a gift, when I bought my new 6D. I was amazed with the quality of the small lense. It will sure be on my camera while travelling from now on!

I've gone a similar way. I used to have a dSLR and a compact, and always found the compact lacking a bit for stock use. I ended up splitting the difference and moving to the micro four thirds format. With the OM-D and a pancake lens it is truly similar in size to the Canon G1X, but even with 4 or 5 primes it still fits into a small bag... Love having my 'best' camera with me at all times.

I do the extension tube thing too - makes for a handy macro lens in a pinch. Here is a shot with my 14mm pancake lens and 10mm extension tube combo while out skiing:

Here is a look at how truly small the Olympus OM-D is :) Mind you, the sensor is smaller than the one in the G1-X by a little bit: Size comparison

40mm handhold at 1/40 f4 ISO800 with CANON 5DII --- took this shot while strolling through the city - I suddenly can do handhold up to 1/25 with avoiding shaken pics - with the 50mm I couldn't - there it was usually 1/60 -- this was also one of the typical situations where I usually used the G1X -  Australian Handcraft store window display
