Your comparing the 1" sensor on the RX10 to the APS-C sensor on the XT1 - what do you expect? The issue is not the 20MP on a 1" sensor, it's that the APS-C sensor is over 3x the size of the 1" sensor.

If you want better high ISO performance the RX10 is probably not the camera for you. I'm not sure why you would want someone to convince you otherwise.

You're a bit late in the discussion, but thanks for the comment.

Thread is dead! Long live the thread!

Darn... too late!

Seriously though, the RX10 is a fine all-round camera. As an RX100M2 owner it appeals to me in many ways - wider, longer, faster at the tele end, better IS. What holds me back is that I use the f/1.8 at 28mm on my RX100M2 all the time (about 50% of my photos), so I would be losing 1.3 stops compared to the RX10.

As you live in the US, you enjoy generous return policies so you don't really have anything to lose giving it a try. Don't let the thread die here - I look forward to some feedback after you've had a chance to shoot with the RX10.
