RX100 low light and wide angle

Just wondered how any new RX100 users are finding this camera?

In what way is the RX100 not so good in low light situations? I thought that with the bigger sensor it should be better but this websites review of the camera lists that as one of its weak points.

I have also read somewhere I don't know whether it was a user on here or over a Serious Compacts but they said when it is wide open they have noticed softness in corners? Have you noticed this too are you not getting good results at 28mm and F1.8 or does the lens only start producing its best results as different focal length/aperture?

How are you finding the custom functions you can use on the function button? What function are you assigning to the control ring? Manual Focusing? Aperture?

Finally how is the video and in particular sound quality?
