It SEEMS fairly clear to me I was simply asking IF I should give it more time WHEN I have time to get 'inside' it or break out the RAW editors or was I "expecting too much?" . . . . . I KNEW I was no fan of an screen to take photos but thought I would give it a chance. Of course I got a few swipes about that as well.

Some people got it . . . and gave replies without the swipes or seemingly questioning if I know how to turn a camera on, or if I was lying etc.

Knox, when you've only reeled off a handful of shots from a camera, without giving yourself the chance to get to know it, then I think you know the answer to your first question. Aside from that, nobody else can really say whether or not a particular machine will suit you, there are too many variables at play including your own personal preferences. I think given the camera background you listed its fair to suggest that you need to be realistic about any big departure from that, and allow yourself a period of adjustment. There is so much impatience these days with people buying something and returning it very quickly because they're not immediately getting the results they have in their mind.

Your post above suggested you're a JPEG shooter and I will say that the RX100 JPEGs are very good indeed even at their default, they are certainly not flat - but personal tastes can be accommodated by adjusting the JPEG parameters either in camera or afterwards. Every camera brand has a slightly different response in this regard and you do need to try different settings before you arrive at something you favour.

My suggestion of the x100 was genuine, I own it myself, and the files do have quite a different "look" which given some of your remarks may well appeal to you. It can also to an extent mimic the feel and handling of a rangefinder, which I thought you would also like.

I am not defensive about my Sony compact camera, that suggestion has no merit - but I make a point of never reviewing or commenting on a machine until I have thoroughly tested it. I know from experience that you can feel very differently about something if you give it time - but patience seems to be in very short supply round here!
