On Sony DSC-RX100 preview (544 comments in total)

After using the camera for a few weeks, a few comments:
1. I'm getting great images with remarkable contrast and resolution albeit large files. I wonder how long I will have to wait for a RAW translator in PS?
2. This thing has the ergonomics of a brick...a small brick. The top plate is smooth and gives very little feedback to the user trying to sort out the shutter from the on-off switch. Without Richard Franiec's custom grip aftermarket, the camera is very tough to hold (thanks Richard).
3. Macro mode is barely usable: wide zoom only and fixed f-stop
4. Very fast write times for such a large file. Great work here.
5. There is only 1 or 2 mm of clearance between the outer lens control ring and the base of the body. A tripod with a cushioned top will cause the ring to bind and that ain't good for the ring. A grievous oversight by Sony. Gotta use a very small tripod head.....so there is a workaround.
6. Menus are tough and circuitous; go pretty deep to erase the card!
