Re: Does anyone here have the RX100 to go with your NEX?

I have D800E, Fuji XE1 and RX100. I am about to get a Nex 6 and modify it for IR and Astro.

I find the RX100 is a superb camera. It is the camera I use for video. Its fantastic for video. The steady shot system gives a very stable, non jittery and smooth video base. The sound is great and clear and the zoom works really well to give a smooth zoom in and out. AF works smoothly and in a non distracting way. I haven't used it yet but it also has 60 frame slow motion.

Its a 10 for video and makes the other cameras seem primitive for video.

As far as IQ goes its really surprisingly good. Its low light performance is good but nowhere near the other 2 cameras which are superb (of course the D800E is the best).

The lens is very sharp. I did  a shoot out between D800E , Fuji XE1 and RX100. RX100 was sharper than XE1 wih 18-55 zoom but about the same with the really sharp Fuji 35mm F1.4
