RX100II vs. the new Panasonic GM1 m43
Oct 16, 2013

Hi,

I am looking for a small but powerful camera, and until now the only real option was the Sony RX100II. But today I learned the size specs of the new Panasonic GM1, and I am a bit shocked to say the least. It is much smaller than the RX100II, *even* with the new 12-32mm (24mm wide angle) lens, and of course has interchangeable mount too:

What to you say about this ? It it worth waiting for the GM1 ? From the rumors, it is also cheaper than the Sony by about $50. The Sony does have the F1.8 but the GM1 has a significantly larger sensor in a smaller size which probably compensates in terms of low-light (and you can always mount a faster lens).
