I maintain that the RX100 II is the best pocket camera ever made, and so far, nobody who’s tried it has disagreed.
Knew it. Thing's great. Phenomenal.
I got into Sony pocket cameras 6 years ago after getting annoyed with my Lumix. It was slow. I couldn't believe we'd gone digital, but sacrificed actual picture taking on time for the supposed ease of managing pictures.
I read and read, found an indie excellent site (which I can't remember) going over cameras, and the author simply pointed out that the Sony took the picture when you pressed the button.
It was revolutionary.
I bought another one every couple of years, as the kids dinged them up, and got the RX100 Mk 2 in August.
Pic on right slightly lower export quality due to BB 2mb filter, but both pics demo just how well it handles difficult lighting conditions, and the flipping detail in the image. Camera was set to "clever" mode i.e. no manual adjustments. It does ordinary just as well.
For a long time I'd wanted a pocket point and shoot that could pick up those special little moments. This camera is the dog's proverbials.
I loves it.
