Re: RX100 III - overexposed images?

I only quickly skimmed the first page, but they look fine to me, apart from the ones where you were shooting into the sun (e.g. DSC00038). I wouldn't want to reduce the exposure in that shot. It would have made the building too dark. I think the camera made a good choice.

In that situation, you might want to try the built in HDR feature. The camera takes a bunch of pics and then merges them in camera. You'll find that the sky comes out better, but without darkening other areas.

If you can be bothered, shoot RAW+JPEG. That'll let you recover some of the blown highlights. Don't think it would recover DSC00038 though. Personally, I'd be very happy with most of the shots you got.
