I don't think that DPR's overall rating can be compared across different camera categories, i.e. P&S vs. DSLR, etc. Having said that, the lens is very good overall with the excellent T* coatings. My particular sample does exhibit some softening at the corners at the wide and telephoto ends. I consider this normal and am fine with it since it is evenly distributed, i.e. no de-centering.

I noticed that in DPreview's review of the RX100, when you go to the CONCLUSION category and look at the ratings meter, it has the RX100 jpeg's image quality superior to most APS-C DSLR's, and even it's High ISO performance rates better than some DSLR's.

How is this possible given that this camera has a much smaller sensor?
