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!

Let's face it: Canon do what they please, whenever they feel they have to do it.

Sony's RX100 was a ripoff of Canon's all-but -supernatural PowerShot s100. There's no mystery about it. Sony actually took to the Canon design and ran away with it. It's not like they pretended to come up with the design by themselves... and a LOT of websites pointed this out so don't blame me for biatching about Sony. Canon's s100 was already a super-camera in its own right. It is great in lowlight and has a good zoom range and focal length plus it's a little black camera that fits in your pocket and has a command dial plus a function ring around the lens base. All in all, Sony should really be ashamed at themselves. It's like copying someone else's homework and claiming it as your own. That said, the Canon image processor is still superior, as is the ergonomics of the menu. And the Sony image processor does a fine job of smearing all the fine details when the scene becomes too confusing for the sensor.

Sorry, but I have yet to hear a widespread "Lens Error" on the RX100.

Just that puts it in a different league.
