Re: Sensor sizes and f stops

There are compact cameras that have sensors bigger than 1/2.3"; lots of them, in fact. The most conspicuous are the Sony RX100 and RX100 mkII, which have 1" sensors. Then there is a whole crop of 1/1.7" cameras from Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus. If you don't require a zoom lens, there are even compacts that have DSLR-size sensors. How large a sensor you can get depends only on how much money you are willing to pay.

Keep in mind that a wide aperture lens is still desirable, regardless of sensor size.
