20Mp is for Cropping with slow short lenses
In reply to Bluto, Feb 3, 2013

That said, It's rare that you need to use a picture at native resolution, i.e., pixel peeping. Unless you are printing poster size and viewing close up, it is very often not an issue. OP didn't say what size he prints at, so maybe his walls are filled with 24" x 36" prints and it is a bigger issue for him.

the 20Mp of the RX100 is far more use for Cropping than anything else - the lens is horribly slow and not especially sharp at full zoom from the samples (rather like the S90/100) - it`d be better to use less zoom where its faster and sharper and crop than use all the zoom , more stable to hold too .

If you really don`t need 20Mp for cropping or big prints then to be honest the RX100 is wasted , a cheap S90/95/100 is the answer and it`s a lot more compact, smaller files, the S100 is wider too
