As a very happy owner of the Sony A77 and a wide assortment of lenses and accessories, I finally decided to augment my system with an easy to cary, point and shoot back up camera.

After extensive research, I pulled the trigger on a Sony RX100. After all, the best camera you own is the one you have with you, and I intend to have this fine camera with me most of the time. The small size makes it practical to cary it in a shirt pocket.

Did not really want to spend that much money, but the ultimate selling point was the fact that the RX100 had an interesting mode that my A77 does not have, namely, the "illustration" mode. I can see myself using this mode quite a lot, specially since it can be applied to any normally captured image, in camera, while retaining the original image!

You will love it. I got an RX100 in Sept to augment my A700. Other than serious telephoto, it pretty much meets my modest needs. I pretty much take it wherever I go (pocket-ability -- the real advantage). It gives me a 5MP crop at 200mm (35mm Eq). I have moved my Raynox macro lens to it and added an old Vivitar 283 flash for 20 foot shots at ISO 125. I am so happy with the RX100 that I am in the process of selling the DSLR stuff.

Enjoy your new toy,
