Re: 5 years and 30 cameras later, 80,000 pictures and the Sony RX100

The XZ-1 if Oly would have given it noise control it would have ruled over the Canon S100 and Pana LX5 100%

We are also due for the XZ-2

I got better results sans flash with the Fuji X10, also a delight to operate. But the Fuji is larger, heavier, and results with its flash were wanting.

Focus is better with the XZ-1 than with the X10, but the X10 had a larger sensor

And both were over 10 ounces

Whereas the RX100 is 7.5 ounces

An interesting journey!

Please get back with an update after you get the new Sony and use it for a month or so.

I have an XZ-1, which also meets the shirt-pocket form factor test. Takes great low-light pictures; am curious whether the Sony's larger sensor will deliver significantly better results. Over ISO 800, my XZ-1 images aren't much good -- the Sony should be better, shouldn't it?

On the other hand, the XZ-1 is bright at f/2.5 at full tele, which is wonderful in the dark.

Keep us posted!
