I'm itching for a new camera, a smaller one, a 'go anywhere' cam, for when I don't feel like taking the a57 and associated gear.

I've been looking everywhere for fast shutter response, excellent image quality, solid build quality, video with zoom and without zoom motor noise, and an excellent lens. I'm interested in easy adjustments (external controls preferable) but can overlook the lack of this if the auto mode is solid.

I'm waiting for the Fuji x20 to come out. I'm looking at the olympus XZ-2. Even considering the Pentax MX-1.

If you want pocketable, I'd consider the Olympus XZ-10 if its image quality turns out to be worthy. It does not have the sensor size of the other high end compacts, but it is it has wider aperture across the zoom than the RX100, many features, and is bound to be less expensive.  It's brand new, not even available for purchase yet.
