Re: They lost me at "Blazing fast autofocus"

Describing the AF as slow is not accurate.
I find it reasonably fast to be honest.

OK, let me qualify my impression then - it's reasonably fast in excellent light, less so otherwise. I've also encountered occasions when my RX1 would adamantly refuse to lock focus, where my identically-set RX100 had no troubles doing so (meaning I had them both side by side). Again, this isn't a dealbreaker for me, as I knew what I was getting into prior to purchasing mine. Whatever points it might lose for slow AF, it more MORE than makes up by way of stellar IQ and portability.
