One moe thing.

I think everyone who loves photography should own a smaller fixed-lens camera no matter what other types of cameras they might own for more "serious" photography and when I was looking to upgrade my small camera I came very close to buying the Canon.

I've always liked Canon compact cameras but parts of the review for the G5X MKII scared me off and I ended up buying a Sony RX100V instead.

  • JPEG noise reduction at high ISO values lags the competition
  • Low ISO JPEGs can have fine detail smeared due to noise reduction

These are mainly the negatives that chased me away from the Canon.

There are a few things I don't like about the Sony but I have to say, the image quality is excellent for a small camera.

By the way, one of the things I have against the little Sony is that after I bought it several people have told me it's not really a pocket camera because of the fragile lens covering.

Seems the same as the Canon

Personally, I think buying a camera that's almost too small (Sony RX100V) makes little sense if it can't be carried in a pocket.
