No pictures of the Nikon Coolpix A yet, though.

The Coolpix A is here:


It's pretty amazing that the Coolpix A is about the same size as the RX100.  Bit if low-light shooting is a priority, I'd definitely favor the Nikon over the RX100.

On DxOMark the Low-light score for each:

Sports (Low-Light ISO) score

Coolpix A         1164  ISO

OM-D                826  ISO

RX100               390  ISO

So if I were you, I'd either get a small PEN or the A.  The f4.9 max aperture on the RX100 is a kind of a deal breaker, at least for low-light shooting.  That said, at the wide end the RX100 does open up to f1.8 vs f2.8 for the Coolpix A.

Best of luck, Markus
