Re: my .02 about 24mm

  • 24 mm wide angle

this is one thing that i disagree with. as much as i like the idea of a 24mm wide angle (i LOVE my canon 24-105mm for its range), there are so many compromises required that i hope sony doesn't go that route.

namely:

a) the distortion in compact lenses, while correctable in camera and in the raw converter later, really messes with the final image quality. you can tell when you pull the images off the camera that distortion has been corrected. they have a processed look that you can never get around.

The lens of the RX100 is already heavily distorted and corrected in camera. Look here for an analysis:

24 mm wide angle would be a great improvement for image composition.
