Why is my NEX not as good as RX100 or even LX5?

Re: Why is my NEX not as good as RX100 or even LX5?

Actually, Gary, you brought up a great point regarding the Vivid mode...that's what I was going to say. I am not very good at PP and don't have the desire to spend much time on it either and for me the NEX-6 Standard processing was alway too blend and not sharp enough.

I realized after some time looking at all the postings with sample images that I liked those that have a pop to them even though sometimes they do not represent real life colors - that's what many folks like on a photograph.

I switched to Vivid (without changing anything) and I am a lot happier now. The images look punchy and crisp as Vivid also affects sharpness.

To the OP I strongly recommend switching to Vivid and doing this test again. Also f4 on the NEX will have a shallower DOF then RX100 so go up to say F8 and then compare results. I would be very surprised if you found that RX100 is still better.
