Trying to evaluate alternatives for replacing my current compact camera.

Below I have collected few comparison-topics which are important from my point of view.
Additions and other thoughts are appreciated.

o) Advantage Sony => Sensor size
1' Sony vs 1/1.7' Samsung

o) Advantage Sony => Tele side of a lens
28-100 Sony vs 24-80 Samsung

o) Advantage Sony => Focus speed (may be)
Positive reports for Sony vs no reports for Samsung

o) Advantage Sony => Size/Weight
Sony smaller/lighter


o) Advantage Samsung => Very bright lens
1.4-2.7 Samsung vs 1.8-4.9 Sony

o) Advantage Samsung => Wide angle lens
24-80 => Samsung vs 28-100 Sony

o) Advantage Samsung => Pixel count
12.4 mpx Samsung vs 20.2 mpx Sony

not clear fewer pixels = advantage

o) Advantage Samsung => Body
Magnesium alloy Samsung vs Aliuminium Sony


o) Advantage Samsung => LCD
Articulated LCD Samsung vs fix Sony

o) Advantage Samsung => External Flash
Hot Shoe Samsung vs none Sony

depends if only camera or intended use. I would never use add on flash for it

o) Advantage Samsung => ND Filter
Available Samsung vs none Sony

o) Advantage Samsung => List Price
$549 Samsung vs $650 Sony

o) Advantage Samsung => Comfortable grip
Pronounced grip Samsung vs none Sony

left off wifi on Samsung

It seems EX2F has some interesting advantages against RX100, at least on a spec. level.

At the moment may be the best strategy is to wait for detailed test reports af both cameras.
