  1. I have now had my RX100 for six months so I now have an informed opinion of it to share: It is a very small and inconspicuous camera easy to carry everywhere all the time. In the six months I have uploaded 696 images to Alamy of which 454 or 65% were taken using the RX100. They say the best camera is the one you have with you. I took some time to decide to buy the camera as I had never before had one without any kind of eye level VF and found rear screens unusable in any kind of bright light. In fact the RX100 screen has been clearly visible in all weather conditions. I was initially very unhappy with the IQ with edge and corner softness all round but much more so at the right hand side of the image. This was corrected by Sony under warranty repair and is now much better. The sensor is evidently much more capable than the lens. Sony warranty repair service was excellent fast and courteous. I shoot aperture priority usually at f5.6 with RAW+J with Jpeg set to “Vivid”. In the good weather we have had recently the jpegs are usable for Alamy, with good colour, and sharper than I can get from RAW. The biggest cause of failed images is camera shake so I use Auto ISO set at 200-1600 to keep shutter speed up. The power zoom is too fast for accurate framing and I have the front ring set as zoom control, or often shoot wider than needed and crop. Experience so far is very good. I will have to learn how to deal with the darker weather to come..
