My new XZ-2: I'm underwhelmed.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not dazzled by the images I'm getting.  With all the rave reviews this little thing is getting regarding OOC jpegs, I guess I was expecting more.  This was meant to be a cheaper replacement for my E-M5.  But I think I'm getting better images out of the OM-D.

The XZ-2 images look soft (is there any way to crank up the sharpness on this thing?).  Dynamic Range is just ok.  And any low light pics taken above 400 iso is just abysmal.  I've been looking at other's images online from this camera and I'm just not impressed.  I guess for $299, I shouldn't complain to much.  But my gut feeling is to return it.

I was also hoping for it to be smaller so as to be pocketable.  At this point, I think I'm a good candidate for the RX100 MkIII.  To bad because my E-M5 made me a fan of Olympus.

Sony RX100
