Some changes
In reply to tkpatric, Dec 6, 2012

I love my RX100, but there are some small areas they could improve on, without a total redesign.  I love the form-factor and the body size/shape works great for me.  It's also nice that they left the grip side clean and unmolested, making it easier for 3rd-party providers to make custom grip assists.  They can feel free to massage the sensor if they want, but as far as I'm concerned, its pretty close to perfect as-is.

Changes I'd like to see in the next model:

*Software improvements to allow wider exposure bracketing (5 frames, max 2EV stepping)

*Either a 1/4000 max shutter speed or an integrated ND filter (with a dedicated activation button/switch, please!)

*An improvement in lens coatings to reduce some of the flare issues

*Some improvement in SteadyShot effectiveness would be welcome

Long-term changes I'd like to see:

*Possibly an f/2.0-f/2.8 35-70 model, since those are FLs I'm most likely to use (don't need the extras at the wide or long end for 90% of shooting, IMO)

*Write the raw files to DNG for better compatability
