We wuz robbed $650!!!!!

$650 is a handsome purse to Sony for each RX100 sold. But buyers should not count the total price as theft. The camera's IQ probably really is worth more than what you'd get with a 1/2.3" sensor P&S or even a "compact" with a 1/1.7" sensor. Perhaps it's worth a tad over $500. The added $150 premium buyers pay can be viewed, alternatively, as pay dirt for Sony shareholders (whose EPS has not been rosy for years); or it can be seen as the one-year membership fee of a club that will celebrate its mascot for the next 12 months, until the RX200 appears, or until the heavily ported and used RX100s all succumb to wear, sensor dust, falls, or assorted disfunctions and error messages.

Mere paupers like myself, on the other hand, settle upon $365 or so as the price ceiling for a pocket camera which, if heavily used, is apt to last about a year, or become obsolete, so that the per diem costs stays in the realm of modest vice.
