I'm in full agreement that this camera is all that. Just make this thing weather sealed and it's game over.

I am reminded of the "What have the Romans ever done for us?" scene in Monty Python's Life of Brian!

Count me in too. The last time i used a Sony camera was a big fat p&s back in early 2000's.

currently own a pocket company Canon SD800, mirrorless Oly PL-2, and big fat Nikon D700 FX DSLR

Just bought the RX100 online. It pretty much combines the best of my Canon and my Oly - can't really ask for more (except a price discount =p)

Not Sony folks.

Plenty of shooters of other brands of picking this up and as a result posting in this forum now. Case in point:

How many new member to this forum because of RX100? (Myself included)

It is far from free. But there are plenty of people (regardless of brand loyalty) who wants the best camera one can slip in their pockets, and are willing to pay a premium for it.

Just cruising through some of the foums and noticed how you guys are really, REALLY into this RX100. That's almost ALL that's being discussed in this forum.

I'm guessing that this is the GREATEST camera that you Sony folks have seen in a while. Don't recall seeing anything this exciting in any forums for a while. Is this like, free, to boot?
No need to add any comment here. Just thought it interesting, that's all.

Receiving my RX100 via "Big Brown" later today. Excited as all get out to receive it! Gave up my old E-PL1 and the Panny 20mm f/1.7 to afford this venture. Even the E-PL1's smallish size became a hassle for me on my daily walks since it required at least a small bag. I am looking forward to the pocket-sized RX100 to provide comparable and beyond photos. Had a TX20 which I gave away to a relative, so my expectations for the RX100 are high based on the accolades here and the sample photos.
