It's the Goldilocks Scenario!

m4/3 (Papa Bear): Largest & best IQ; most expensive, heaviest.

Sony RX100 (Mama Bear): Much lighter, smaller. IQ? Thom Hogan uses a Sony RX100 (Goldie's Choice?)

iPhone (Baby Bear): Obviously way different in IQ, size & weight. Most folks on this forum will decidedly poo-poo even comparing to this camera. To that I say look here & judge for yourself:

Isn't m4/3 even better? Of course it is. Your question again -- how good do you need for what you do with your cameras?

I absolutely cringe in horror anytime anyone starts to talk about quality photography and cell phones in the same sentence, no -- paragraph, no -- entire document. no -- entire website!  Yes, thankfully I have the Connect (Shiver) option for DPR News turned mercifully OFF -- as default.  (Ugh, shiver.)

Clayton!  Bad!
