Re: Heated debate about 17mm/1.8

From what I've seen, the Sony is overhyped. It has a very impressive sensor but a quite disappointing lens. Almost any other high end compact camera has better lens sharpness (in the corners and edge of the image).

Actually I think my RX100 has a pretty good lens and isn't overrated. I'm still planning on getting rid of my Canon SLR gear and getting a GX7 though. The RX100's limitations aren't corner sharpness or lens quality, but flexibility. No kit zoom lens for me with the GX7 then, because it would be no better than the Sony I already have, which will act as my 'kit lens' until I can afford the 12–35!
