Re: Friend wants P&S for shooting young kids

Thanks, Paul. I had missed the fact that that the RX100 had very fast autofocus.

Nothing by Canon, really. Canon's compacts don't have great autofocus times - some say it's to protect their dslr market. It looks to me like they'll be improving that in the next year, as pretty much all competitors have beat them at autofocus times.

The best compact I know of right now for what you're asking for is the Sony rx100. Super fast autofocus, much larger sensor in a size just a little thicker than the s100, and an f1.8 lens. Imaging resource said it had better autofocus times than most entry level dslr's.

I don't think anything faster exists that's compact, low light lens, and no interchangeable lenses - than the Sony rx100.
