I agree with the points made that
- control rings around the lens are uncomfortable
- RX 100 may have good image quality, but handling is no fun

I also regret that the Mk 2 has no front-dial such as many other cameras. It also has a vertically-only articulating monitor, while previous articulating monitors could swing in many more ways.

Both designs (control around lens instead of front-dial, verticallly articulating monitor) seem to be in fashion now, but useful they are not.

I also have compact Olympus XZ-2 with controls around the lens - i'd much prefer a front control-dial that could be used with one-handed handling.
