Main annoyance for me is that in P-mode it goes to pretty slow shutter speeds and wide-open aperture before it will raise ISO. With moving children it tends to produce blurry and mis-focused shots. Too bad it's not possible to use auto-ISO in M mode!

Wide open, lens has quite a bit of spherical aberration (loss of contrast on small details). It's the same story with my 50/1.8 and 35/1.8 Nikkors, though. In typical low light shots it's invisible.

No true macro mode like most other compacts. The closest focus distance is too large.

Setting custom white balance is ridiculously complicated.

Other than these, no complaints! I've been shooting a D300 (RAW only) for 4 years and RX100 replaced it for 90% of situations.
