My nickel, since the penny is being discontinued...

Don't laugh!

Sony's 1" sensor often comes amazingly close to M43 in overall output. And if indeed EM series suffers from the infamous shutter shock issue, then I can believe he experienced sharper shots from the RX sometimes.

I'm not going to claim the RX sensor is magic or anything, but it is often really surprisingly good and the lens is also often surprisingly sharp. In my own experience I recall finding shots taken with an RX100 to be sharper and cleaner than those taken with an EM5 +12-60.

There's a reason the RX series is so highly regarded. They really are pretty special cameras for what they offer.
