Re: Which Compact is best For Low Light?
Your best bet here if your budget is really tight is to look at the Panasonic range. The LX7 has an F/1.4 which goes out to F/2.2 at full extension. The LF1 has an F/2.0 lens which goes out to F/5.9 but has more zoom. At 100mm the LF1 is only a couple stops slower than the LX7 but from there it tails off. On the other hand you can mount a teleconverter on the LX7 and have F/2.3 at 200mm.

Nope. As you go tele, you go darker. No way to stay at f/2.3 at 200mm

The Sony RX100 is going to give you the best image quality in your price bracket

Depends on usage... It´s good cam, as other cams are.
