No lag with my RX100. How fast are you turning the ring? I notice if you turn the ring very slowly sometimes it responds slowly. That said is a focus by wire system and will never be as responsive as DMF.

When in MF mode on my camera, a slight turn of the control ring will activate the magnified view to assist in focusing, but unless you give the control ring a deliberate quick twist after that, simply turning the ring at a reasonable rate (say a 90 degree turn over 1.5 to 2 seconds) will result in no change in focus at all. Once a quick twist is made (say a 90 degree turn in under a second), the camera will then respond appropriately to slow turns of the control ring with no noticeable lag.
