Nappe1: OM-D EM-5 Definetely. making weather proof, Image Stabilized, such high quality digital camera in such small size is a big achievment.

Pentax had sensor based IS for ages. So did Sony, but Pentax made smaller than usual DSLRs.

No 808? It is THE camera phone. There hasn't been anything like it before, nor is it likely will there be anything like it in the near future. It is peerless. It's a melding of PnS with a phone. Although there isn't an optical zoom, the lens itself is pretty stellar as well, doing well enough not to hold back a 41mp/38mp in normal mode sensor.

viking79: I would have liked to see a bit about how the ND filter works in the Samsung EX2f. It would be nice to know how well it works, if it is an optical type, etc. I think the feature is unique to all the tested cameras.

Eric

Sometimes you want a ND filter so you can use slower shutter speeds...

Jim in Hudson: Great and informative review. No question they are all very good cameras but what became apparent to me is the LX-7 is the steal of the bunch if you can find it at $300 (which you can).

S100 has a lot of lens issues, hope it's resolved in the S110.

Sdaniella: Extra Mp (due to larger sensor area size) does offer more flexible creative crop options, it's more about the relevance of how well particular pixel sizes perform 'like-size-for-like-size'.

There is nothing about the Sony RX-100 that is a 'engineering marvel' at all, when all they do is resort to using slightly larger yr2012-pixels than all the rest, albeit plastered on a large enuf sensor size to ensure more Mp overall

Based strictly on predicting IQ on pixel density (pixels/mm of sensor), larger pixels should perform better than smaller (sensor size and Mp count notwithstanding):

Best to Worst, similar pixel densities, if same*, are truly pitted 'one-on-one'*:
1) RX100 @ 415 pixels/mm
2) FujiFilm X10/XF1 @ 455 pixels/mm
3) Pany LX7 @ 490 pixels/mm
4) Oly XZ-2 @ 533* pixels/mm
4) Nikon P7700 @ 533* pixels/mm
6) Canon G15/S110 @ 538 pixels/mm

If a sensor with SMALLER pixels happen to demonstrate superior IQ to others that are LARGER, then, it's the better pixel (superior tech).

The SIZE.

Atsel: Nikon P7700 seems to deliver the best per-pixel sharpness in this test.

The operational speed and AF speed is an issue for street/sports/kids shooters etc. RX100 is blisteringly fast in comparison. S110, if it's anything like the S100, hopefully won't be burned by lens issues. The AF is also slower than the RX100's.

Can't say anything about the rest though, haven't tried them.

No Nikon P7700?
