Great sensor and small - otherwise not so much..

Lens is OK but very slow as you move through the zoom range. I personally couldn't stand the UI and various controls. No reasonable  way to zone focus. But the AF is pretty good. And the sensor is a bit of a game changer. I personally would choose the X10 or LX7 over the RX100 after trying all three pretty extensively. i have other nice cameras to do the low light heavy lifting and picked the LX7 for a decent light walk around cam (although its lens is so fast it's actually pretty OK in low light). If I was looking for a compact as an only camera I'd go for the X10 (or coming X20). I'd only go for the RX100 if the smallest size is your highest priority.

Or if you shoot auto a lot and don't care about interacting with the camera. I gave mine to my wife who shoots in iAuto all the time and couldn't be happier with it.
