Finally I have "arrived" with my new toy.

Amidst all the hullabaloo re the RX100m3 I feel a little out of place but here goes:

I think I got a good used one. Everything feels good, no scratches or knocks. Probably a bit more used than the write up indicated, but no worries.

It's a hefty piece of kit. No lightweight. It's a delight to use with dedicated shutter control and aperture ring.

Autofocus, no issues whatsoever. Very similar to my nex.

Quiet as a mouse.

Lovely piece of engineering.

Results are great. There's a certain Zing to the images, definitely a result of the lens and sensor combo. Clear and clean, excellent, lovely tones. Really great to PP.

The EVF is a lovely thing. Very clear indeed. Will be useful, I can tell.

I can see it rapidly becoming my only camera, with occasional use of the RX100ii for maybe some zoom use.

I am very happy with it!

Here are a few of todays catches, in pretty weird light, bright overcast:
