audiobomber: I expect the RX100 would have easily earned a Gold award if it had fewer pixels, a hot shoe and a faster lens at the long end.
Actually, with the resolution power with such a small Zeiss lens in a small package. I can't find any opps against a Gold Award for RX100. In fact, most of the small DCs are having significant aperature drops at tele end given to their "folding lens" design to avoid distortions. Man! Take a look at the bulky XZ-1 even with 1/1.7" sensor!
