I had not planned on buying a new P&S this weekend, I already have the Panasonic LX5 and Nikon D90......but we are already planning our vacation for this year ( Banff NP ) so I need a good quality P&S, will most likely sell the LX5 on eBay.

I usually spend weeks or months researching camera purchases, so I hope the 2 days I spent reading stellar reviews about the RX100 prove to be correct!

I liked the 1'' sensor, retractable lens with no separate cap.

Sounds like the battery may last long enough and 2nd one may not be needed?

Am assuming the RX100 will produce out of the camera JPG's at least as good as the LX5 and better....

The RX100 will give you clean ISO 1600 pictures.  With IS.  And its flash pivots to the ceiling for red-eye free flash work.

It is very nice.

The LX5 is sharper than the LX7, which is soft until stopped down.

In good light the LX5 is fantastic.  Indoors it kind of needs a flash.
