The Fall Of All Compacts

The Sony RX100 is an amazing camera. Yes. Small, pocketable, high resolution, decent high ISO performance. I wonder if it is going to eat into Sony's NEX profits?

However for just snap shots--I have my iphone. It does a pretty mean 4x6 image. LOL

You may have meant that is jest but it's a huge problem for EVERY compact camera (like the RX100).  The iPhone sensor (and the Nokias) are now good enough I have zero desire to carry any kind of compact camera that does not equal the level of quality I can get from a real DSLR, because the iPhone is far more flexible and for simple shots does a fantastic job - plus I have really several different cameras with different apps, and can share images far more easily and immediately.
