| p.1 #5 · RX100 or Something Else |
Replaced my EM-5, my X100 and my NEX7
Its not as good as any of those of course, as they have larger sensors, amazing IBIS, great viewfinders, interchangable lenses etc, but frankly the RX100 simply wins out by having quite acceptable IQ and being so much more portable
I've got a few DSLR's for my serious work, so all the mirrorless CSC's where simply by "fun" cameras for casual shooting. Really though I found I wasn't carrying them enough because I often didn't want to carry a shoulder bag etc when I was out having "fun".
RX100 fits easily into my pocket so it actually goes with me more places, and that means more photos I can take.
Icing on the cake is that its IQ in some ways is better than some CSC's I've owned such as the older m4/3 bodies with 12meg sensors and kit zooms.
I've got a magnetic filter holder for it so I can use my r72, ND's, polarizer etc,and also a little L bracket so its my typical landscape camera now too.
I sometimes might bracket and blend a scene for more DR, or do a stitched pano for more resolution, but the results are darn impressve for its size
D800e totally trumps it of course, but its just so much easier to carry the little RX100 instead of a heavy backpack of camera gear that I'm taking the RX way more often unless its a paid job.
All and all fantastic little camera that does everything I need/want and that saved me carrying my "man bag" around when out on the town not to mention put thousands of dollars back into my bank account from selling the NEX and EM-5 and all the glass
Heck, the fact I'm not tempted to buy more lenses for the RX100 like I surely would of been doing with the latest round of releases if I still shot m4/3 alone is a bit of a plus right ? lol
