Re: Metal cameras vs. Plastic cameras

You want a system camera which the RX100 is not. IMO the Nikon 1 cameras are too small and limiting for use as a system camera but for you it sounds like a good choice. I already have a Sony SLT system with an A55, A65, external flash, 90mm macro, 70-300 tele zoom, a 35mm f1.8 and a 50mm f1.7. System cameras though won't fit in your pocket so the RX100 is an addition to my system. When I want to cover a wide range I can take the A65 with 70-300 and stick the RX100 in my pocket so it's like carrying one camera and I don't have to change lenses to cover 28-450 35mm equivalent range.
