Best Small Camera in the World?
7

I've owned a lot of gear over the past decade or so. See my previously owned gear list if you don't believe me. I'm always looking for a big punch in a small package because I'm a mountain adventurer which includes hiking, scrambling, climbing and skiing.

The RX100 is the best compact camera with a sensor size under APS-C that I've ever owned. In my mind, it even beats the m43 line up (which I've used extensively) because it's so darn small and takes such amazing photos! When processing the RAW files I can't tell a difference between the RX100 and most of the m43 cameras I've used over the years.

Of course nothing's perfect. DOF is going to be large with this small sensor. This works perfectly for my main usage (landscapes) but may not work for yours.
