Re: Sony RX10. Pixel size and noise are holding me back from buying

Well I finally put my hand in my pocket and bought one a few weeks back. Mainly looking for a lighter outfit to carry around than my A77 + CZ + 55-200 Tamron and so far I'm astonished. In good light, the images are VERY close to the A77 + CZ combination. I used it taking some pictures for work in a dim hall, where I've used the A77 in the past - the f/2.8 all the way meant I could get away with lower ISO but at 800 - 1600 the results are surprisingly good. (Can't display them as they're for work).

I also tried searching "RX10" on flickr. Well worth looking at what some other people have posted - the shots show off the camera's capabilities very well.
