Re: Reviewer says RX100 kills the PEN

"The RX100 kills the GF, Nikon 1 and PEN series for me. In fact I was always uneasy with mirrorless being a ‘step-up’ from a point & shoot any way. Those models are now a thing of the past."


"The number of rival cameras the RX100 completely destroys is quite astonishing. Say goodbye to your Canon S100, Fuji X10, Canon G1X, Nikon 1, Olympus PEN, Lumix GF3 with X power zoom. The RX100 is a better all-rounder than all of these cameras and significantly smaller (with lens) than any current mirrorless offering."

I'm sure the RX100 is a very good camera but after your comments (on the NEX forum) about NEX 5n skin tones, it surprises me that you're considering another Sony camera.

I always (secretly) agreed with you about Sony's rendering of skin tones, especially under incandescent lights. I think most of the problem is caused by white balance issues.

Anyway, do you think the RX100 will do a better job with indoor pictures of people?
