Introduction

The Sony RX100 needs no introduction. This powerful point-and-shoot has already received its fair share of positive press, having been declared the best compact of the year by some, the best compact of all time by others. Featuring a giant 1-inch sensor and an f/1.8 Zeiss lens, the camera certainly looks good on paper. Add to that the rotating manual control ring plus a menu system modeled after Sony SLRs, and we've got one very promising product.
