Surely the other OEMs are releasing cameras to answer the great success of the RX100.

Which just or soon to be released models do you think are answers to the RX100?

I think it's more likely that we'll see the other manufacturers drop the prices on their existing products (LX7 seems to be down already) instead of trying to compete directly with the RX100.

Designing a new camera isn't done overnight, I'm not sure we'll see true RX100 competitors until next fall when the new models usually come out. What I do think will happen is that the companies like Panasonic who usually goes for a refresh every other year will push it forward to releasing new models next fall instead of waiting until 2014.

Shooting for fun and memories.
