I spent yesterday shooting landscape and flower pictures with my Nex 6 and Rx100. I noticed something about shooting with each camera that is not mentioned in this discussion. Using my Nex6, I had to stop down to f/16 or even f/22 to attain the depth of field that I had at f/4 or f/ 5.6 with my RX100. In landscape photography I prefer a very wide depth of field keeping every thing sharp from closeup to infinity.  This required that I use a slower shutter speed with the Nex6, resulting at times with an unsharp photo. I had no unsharp photos with the higher shutter speeds of the RX100.

The day was slightly windy. Because I could use a faster shutter speed with the RX100, I could only use that camera for the flower pictures.
