Canon to Sony convert

Lifelong Canon user.  Bought and loved the Canon S95.  "Upgraded" to the S100, returned it after a week, deeply disappointed.

Then I came across the RX-100, which I bought using my returned store credit plus a top-up, and never looked back.  It was a gamechanging product in terms of image quality in a comparable size to the S95.

I upgraded to the Mark II as soon as it came out and bought myself a hotshoe Mic to go with it -- the sound quality in an arena concert setting is astounding.

The macro on this camera (bees, insects etc) still has me shaking my head in disbelief at what a compact camera can do, handheld.

Eagerly looking forward to the Mark III and beyond.

-0.5 stars for some UI issues (awkwardly placed movie button and tendency for the camera to default to shaky 1/30 speed instead of leaning on its excellent high ISO performance, without a minimum speed setting)
