In reply to Andrew Butterfield, Dec 10, 2012

I came from an S90.  Obviously we all liked the convenience convenience and form factor of that Canon series.  We also seem to all have DSLRs (D7000 and D40 here) and also some mirrorless boxes too (GF1 here).

I was looking at getting an RX100 and an NEX 6 but do feel that the RX100 is probably all I need.

The cost of quality glass for the NEX seems a bit steep but so far, in the last week, I have been impressed with this little beauty.

I bought this camera for a trip to the Heidelberg Christmas Market soon (flying Ryan Air) so I was wanting to make my travel kit small and light.  I think I have been sensible not getting the X100, X10, X Pro1 etc and feel that the six and performance of the RX100 to be very rewarding.

The MR function is also liked here as I am used to teh U1/U2 on the D7000 and teh C1/C2 of teh GF1.

I haven't made the decision yet but I can see this replacing the GF1 soon.

I'll place a few pictures after the trip.

Regards
