How many of you own RX1 and/or RX100 plus other cameras. Is RX1 or RX100 your "go to" camera now?

RX100 seems to do the trick

Hello,

Are you a hobby snapper or a Pro?

For owners that have either a RX1 and RX100 or both, how many still have other cameras in your stable that you still pick up and shoot with?

Either instead of, or side by side, with your RX1/ RX100 or both in the same bag?

So, how many cameras do you currently own and shoot with, and is your RX1 or RX100 your "go to" camera now?

I noticed one Sony Talk member here has a total of ten high end digital cameras at his/her disposal.

And, if you do shoot with multiple cameras for a family, vacation holidays, or paid assignment, how many cameras do you usually carry, what kind are they, and how do you decide which one to pull out of the camera bag to shot with?

When you are carrying more than one camera how do you navigate the different menus and not miss the "decisive moment" or image you envision?

The reason I ask is I'm thinking of getting a RX1 (already have RX100). Not a pro, just a family, vacation type snapper here. Have a bad back, so DSLR's currently a PIA to carry for long vacations.

Thank you and wishing you continued good shooting.

On my last trip (Thailand) I left my a900 and NEX7 at home and just took along my RX100. I was curious to see whether I'd experience any frustration during the trip or any disappointment looking at my shots when I got home. I experienced neither. It was actually freeing to be able to carry the RX100 in my pocket and yet end up with images that look great. I just bought the RX1 today and will see how well that works as a solo-camera on my next trip (though I suspect I'll miss the zoom on my RX100)
