On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (351 comments in total)

I actually think the G16 might compete well with my RX100II.

In favor of the G16:

1) Built in viewfinder
2) No buffer at 9 fps!
3) IQ will be pretty close at the tele focal lengths because the lens is almost 2 stops faster at the tele end.
4)Better ergonomics ( I always prefer a smaller lens to body ratio)
5)A second custom setting on the dial
6)longer telephoto reach
7)A remote cable switch

In favor of the RX100II:

1) Better IQ at wide focal lengths and lower light
2) Pocketable
3) 20MP
4) tilting LCD

mmcfine: Honestly, I find most cameras this days produce more or less the same image quality. The glass makes the art not the chip or sensor.
It's amazing how much money and time we spend on comparing nonsense.

For most people, cameras today with a similar number of megapixels do produce more or less the same image quality in good light

But the images from a full frame sensor will always blow away images from an APS-C or smaller sensor at 1600,3200,6400 ISO.

Also, newer cameras tend to have improved electronics that provide faster and more accurate autofocus, faster frames per second and larger buffers.

This can mean getting or losing the "shot" with active subjects.

Oh, and don't forget that newer cameras with similar or improved specs to older ones are getting smaller/lighter, which is always appreciated when walking around all day with camera around your neck.

After shooting the RX-100, I believe the RX-1 will live up to the hype!

I guess I am guilty, I am always looking for" biggest in the smallest."

Not for bragging rights , but getting the shot in a street environment.
Smaller always means not getting noticed as often when taking a shot, and bigger always means better image quality in challenging light !

Wow!
Sounds like a street photographers dream:

Quiet
Relatively small, unobtrusive
5 FPS at 24Mpix
FF for improved low light performance and shadow detail.
3 custom modes.

I hope the autofocus is fast and accurate.
I hope it has a large buffer.
I hope its battery can give 300+ shots.
