I figure Canon is on drawing board right now to match Sony's RX100. Canon will trump the RX100, with the same spec's and...cheaper!

Chasing the RX100? When I saw that the RX100 battery has to be charged in the camera via USB my first thought was: What R-tard came up with that idea. Personally, I think Sony is the one playing catch up. And at $650 a pop they face an uphill battle. Some will rush in and tell us the RX100 has a fast f1.8 lens and conveniently omit the fact it drops to f4.9 at the 100mm limit.

Doesn't the S100/110 drop to about f5.0 also?

The S100 drops to f5.9 at the long end, is wider at the short end (24mm vs 28mm), and currently available on Amazon for $250 new. The S110 sells for $400, still a deal compared to the RX100 at $650.

In Australia the EX100 is only about an extra $AU100 more than the S110 especially the white one. Apparently white paint costs a lot more than black paint here !!!
