mikdes26: I just wonder why they haven't stabilized these. I have a slight hand tremor and need IS in all focal lengths. I chose the slower Canon 35mm f/2 IS over the Sigma 35mm in large part due to this (plus it was less money and receives great reviews). I love it. Any chance they'll go this direction with the next generation?

I'd get Pentax, but before I invested in Canon I ordered two Pentax cameras and both were faulty. Now I have a 60d and a 6d and both have been trouble free. I do have the Canon 85mm f1.8 and like it a lot. It's my only non-IS lens right now.

T3: Some people act like this is the first digital compact camera to ever be introduced without a viewfinder! Huh? Where have these people been for the last few years of digital photography? I'm a DSLR shooter, but I take photos all the time with non-VF cameras too. Millions of people take great photos without a VF every day. It's really not that difficult to do. Obviously, there are different camera form factors for different users and different needs. Obviously, this is a compact camera, so the designers obviously wanted to keep it compact. Adding a VF would have made it less compact. So I guess they'll just have to sell this camera to those people out there who have no problem with using an LCD screen to shoot a photo-- which millions of people do every day. Clearly, not everyone *needs* a viewfinder to take a good photo, which has been proven over many years of digital photography.

Another option with and LCD like this, though, is to face the lens at your subject and fold the LCD to a position in which it can be seen. With the flexibility of the LCD, one doesn't necessarily have to face the subject.

The RX100 shots all look slightly out of focus. Who else sees this?
