MisoL: When we can expect Linux version? Canon, please wake up! The only RAW processor choice, Linux users have is Corel AftershotPro and it takes them many months to support new cameras (lost sales for you in Linux users). Free software like Darktable and RawTherapee is faster in supporting new cameras, but it's usability is not as mature yet.
I'm pure Linux user for last 19 years. I tried to use Apple, but it's too limited for my usage. Maybe, Linux does have smaller market share, but linux users are mostly power users, so much more of them process than average windows user do. These people also help less technical users to decide what to buy.
On Linux I have Color calibrated display and use Corel Aftershot Pro. It's suits my use better, then LR (I can't use Catalogs, my images are on home storage accessed from 3 computers). I do 99% of my photo processing in Corel and GIMP is more then capable to do the rest.
Im my office, we are 5/6 linux users, 5 do have Canon camera, and 3 process RAW images and purchased Bibble or Corel Aftershot. 6th is Nikon shooter, and he uses RawTherapee to process his files.

3080mm with AF when mounted on Pentax Q10:-) One will have to build this lens in concrete wall hold this focal length steady. No tripod would do it.
simon65: It looks like a winner!
I think some people are missing the point here, namely that the RX100 is offering a quality build camera with 1 inch sensor and Carl Zeiss zoom lens in a body not really much bigger or heavier than Canon's 1/1.7" sensor S100.
That's some achievement and for me that makes the RX100 a game changer.
Yes like others I would have preferred less MP (14-16 MP is more than enough), and would trade 30 mm at the long end of the zoom range for an extra 5 mm at the wide end (ie 24-75mm), but this camera still gets my vote as the most interesting compact camera of the year, so far!
Oh, sorry. Even I got fooled by the specs. Seems, like every small sensor camera maker is trying to lie about sensor size.
13.2x8.8mm is 1/1.6", that's not that much bigger, than 1/1.7" sensor in Canon S100.
Besides astro-photography, this camera is suitable also for infrared photography and underwater photo/video, where red channel is very weak and correcting white ballance introduce lot of red noise. I'm using CSC camera with removed ir-cut filter for underwater and infrared photography.
ST-E3-RT with no AF-ASSIST - are you serrious?
short f/2.8 primes ? who will buy them? If they would be pancake lenses, they will have market. It's just one stop faster than f/4@24mm in 18-135 kit lens.
When people asked me what affordable underwater camera they should buy, I used to recommend them Canon D10, because of larger sensor and brighter lens than competition. Now, when D10 is old model, I recommend better compact (like S95/S100) with underwater housing. I can't recommend D20 as cheaper alternative:-(
Eye-Fi is crap. It sends all credentials to Eye-Fi servers. You can't setup it with FTP server on private LAN and transfer was unusable slow. Worst spent 130 EUR.
Put wifi/bluetooth remote control from tablet to mirrorless, and I will buy it.Other suggestions, to make it perfect:1) open API, to be able to control/trigger multiple installed cameras. 2) don't forget wired remote trigger connector (for connecting trap trigger)
