As for a smaller camera for landscapes, I know you cannot accept the RX100's soft corners but I would really recommend it nonetheless. Amazing detail and good DR. And unless you print 20X30 or larger (which would fall below 200 ppi), I don't think one's eye would ever be drawn to corner softness at any other viewing size (it would barely be visible, or at least not enough to be distracting I think).

from what I see it is very visible even at 11x14 inch, for WA images when the lens is used at f/4 or larger aperture or tele images at f/8 or larger aperture. I agree that RX100 has some good sides like better DR, but it is difficult to balance the pros and cons. If the new XZ2 was smaller I would probably chose that one ...

But you can always wait for the improved model of course. I will certainly be itching to buy it, but I don't regret buying the RX100 as it has really given me a thrill with its quality.

I never itch to buy, I want to chose a camera that I can stick to for many years so I get the best images out of it.  RX100 shows lots of promise, just like the Sony NEX cameras. But there are a few important issues that need improvement for me. I guess landscape style photographers are simply not the target audience for this camera (just like NEX, btw ...).
