Is the IQ in the newer RX100s really any better?
7 months ago

Hi all,

I am always on the quest for smaller, lighter, less conspicuous gear. The rx100 series really interests me as the most flexible and capable camera that I could fit in a pocket. My question is- is the rx100iii worth it, strictly IQ wise?

From looking at side by side image comparisons, the IQ looks very close between the two (the iii may have slightly sharper corners to my eye from samples I've seen).

I would like the tilt screen and EVF, but if the IQ really is as close as it seems, the slimmer profile and much lower price will sway me toward the mk i.

Thanks for your feedback!
