Does anyone here have the RX100 to go with your NEX?

Isn't the RX100 sharing its 1" sensor with the Nikon V/J1?

I remember lots of complaints about the V1, poor low light performance, largish DOF, but very fast AF.

I don't see the RX100 as any different. If you want a sharp, large DOF, shot, the smaller sensor wins. But when lights drop, or when you want a creative shot, or try to isolate your subject, better bring your Nex, and a fast lens, that is.

The RX100 is very good as a P&S, but not as a Nex replacement, nor as a backup camera. Plus I am not fond of large DOF when not needed.

Still, the RX100 is amazingly compact, just hold it next to a S100, with a much smaller sensor.

I used to keep an S95 handy, but realized that, most of the time, the cellphone is good enough. For those other times I bring the Nex.

Maybe if the RX100 wasn't quite as expensive ...
