Re: Got my RX-100 today

My first post but have been reading here for awhile! Great forum! I have the RX100, RX1, a99, NEX-3N and Nikon D5200. And yeah I've done a lot of comparos. Here's my take on the RX100's IQ.

Resolution at low ISO is significantly better than the NEX-3N with 16-50 kit, better than the D5200 with 16-85 as well as with 35 1.8G! The APS-C cameras do better with color saturation and dynamic range. So a trade off in my book. But for a camera with a zoom that you can pocket, the RX100 makes me shake my head with disbelief every time I download its files. A sharp prime (Sigma's 30 2.8) on the NEX-3N is sharper as are the full-frame 24MP Sonys.

In terms of noise, the APS-C cameras have ~1.5 stop noise advantage at high ISO. 1600 on RX100 is comparable to 4000 on D5200.

Finally, all 3 of my other Sonys have more reliable metering.
