Nice, 1/1.7" BSI sensor should perform about the same as the larger 1" sensor in the RX100 and Nikon 1 in terms of noise, and the large aperture lens should mean depth of field isn't much deeper.

I also like the built in ND filter, that should be nice for keeping some shallow depth of field in bright light.

Price looks pretty good too. My thought is the RX100 is overpriced, I would rather buy an m4/3 camera, might not be as small, but would rather have interchangeable lenses. The one thing the RX100 has going for it is that it is truly pocketable.

if the pricing here in North America will be priced around $430, then that should be an easy sell. the ND filter did caught my attention. and I agree that the selling point of the RX100 is a pocket camera with great IQ (not much so with sensor size but has sensor quality). the price of the RX100 imo is also a bit on the steep end, and I agree that the slimmest m4/3 camera would make a better deal. however, the RX100 would be great on those everyday candid and unexpected moments where you want to reach your pocket for it rather than use your smartphone for taking pictures. anyway, I have to see these in person first.
