Wow! There you go. That sums up perfectly my experience with the RX100 since I bought the camera 48 hours ago. I'll add a bit more. Image quality: eye-poppingly good. not just for a small compact, but certainly rivals by Canon 7D and the 15-85mm lens i had attached to it. Honest! Ability to capture detail: quite astounding. At work i have a low level desk partition covered in a plain blue fabric. i took a picture of it from a few feet away, and the detail it captured, along with the sharpness, was quite breathtaking (yes, breath-taking). i expected a degree of moire, but absolutely no sign of it. Ease of use: takes some time, like all cameras, but I'm already finding it easy to navigate. the Superior Auto function is quite superb if youre feeling a little bit lazy. Noise: I'm finding upto 1600 perfectly useable, but do need to do a bit more on this. i have an X100 to compare it to. The only winge i have about it is the lack of MACRO function directly in the menu. but other than that, it is certainly a keeper. AF is fast, MF with focus peaking is excellent. The lens ring works much better than the S90/95/100. no hotshoe mount but i rarely used flash on my DSLRs!. Cant wait for Lightroom to update their firmware cos this little beauty is just outstanding!. glad i started to trim down the weighty equipment, and now left with this baby and the fuji X100. I really ought to post some pics, but i guess you lot already know how good this camera is. It really is like having a pocket-sized DSLR If you dont mind, I'd like to reiterate: THIS ISNT JUST A STUNNING PERFORMER IN COMPARISON TO OTHER COMPACT CAMERAS, THIS IS A STUNNING PERFORMER FOR A CAMERA, PERIOD, FULL-STOP, ETC.
