I am still loving my RX100. I carry it every day except when I have specific shooting plans, in which case I carry my OM-D E-M5. The IQ of this camera is absolutely mind-blowing for something that fits in a front jeans pocket.
The biggest downside is really just how small all the controls are, but there is really no way to make them bigger on a camera that fits in your pocket. So that is something you just have to know and accept going in. If you can't accept that kind of thing then, quite frankly, pocketable cameras are really not for you. It took me a bit to get used to, but once I got it configured the way I like I found the camera very easy to use, even in manual mode. Not as convenient as a DSLR, but surprisingly simple and fast to adjust none the less.

I have it since august and still love it. I've taken it on my travels to Turkey and Italy, and didn't miss my bigger camera (Oly E-PL2).

Need? Oh, that's another thing entirely. I figure any camera that I'll use is one I need. I don't need a Leica X1, but -- call it red dot syndrome, a kind of virtual rash -- I'll get one when I can. Then justify it by pointing out my gear is weak in the focal length included. As my doctor pointed out when I politely refused surgery and opted to deal with a problem through the wonders of pharmaceuticals, "need is relative".

I've had it since this Summer and I'm very happy with the combination of IQ and size. I used to have the LX5 and S90 of which I prefered the IQ of the former and size othe latter. The RX100 is all this and a lot more. It even put my J1 to rest.
I have one minor/major complain regarding blurry shots due to long shutter speeds. I normally use Aperture Priority (around f/2-2.8) and Auto ISO up to 800. Most of my shots end up in the 1/30-1/80 range and I can't hold the camera steady with such a long shuttertime. Now, I should probably use it wide open, but that doesn't always help. Searching the web I've found that Sony uses the 1/focal length rule. Wish it was possible to change the slowest shutterspeed when in Auto ISO. Maybe I should use more flash too..

Just bought this on november 2012 and very satisfied with the image quality and great details.
Here example of my photo (resize 20 percents straight from camera)
What i dislike of this camera are the AWB sometimes not reliable and for yellow's color is tend to greenish. But anyway we can fix it on lightroom.

Do you have the Franiec grip? If not, you'll be surprised how it eases inserting the camera into your pocket and pulling it out, as well as securely holding it for one-hand shots. Just MHO.
