Re: Leaning towards S100...

Having looked at this further I am strongly considering, for a combined high end compact and camcorder the Canon Powershot S100.

My main reasons for this are:

1. The S100 is tried and tested with many excellent photo and video samples available.
2. I know Canon and my way around them as my main camera is a 60D.
3. The S100 has built in GPS.

4. The S100 does not require you to have the battery in the camera when charging it. I think this is a bad design from Sony.
5. Last but not least, cost. The S100 is $300/£200 less than the RX100.

I suppose it could be time to move my comments over to the Canon forum

The Canon has a much smaller sensor so the IQ is sure to be worse than the RX100. If the IQ of the S100 is satisfactory for your uses than the Canon may be better for you. Personally I own 2 APS-C cameras and find the IQ of small sensor cameras like the S100 unacceptable. Since you own a 60D you may find the S100 IQ unacceptable as well.
