Thanks for your sediments and thoughts on the topic whiteheat,
Interesting points you raise here, but how exactly is the Nex not as good as a DSLR for most photography?? It has the same size senor and an incredible short (18cm) sensor to lens distance which allows for the flexibility to use any lens with an adapter? This does not turn the camera into a dslr. It becomes and incredible light form factor camera with a the option to use regular lenses that are large. Big difference as far as overall weight etc..
The rx100 has a much smaller senor and does not produce the image quality of the Nex cameras, although it is excellent considering the sensor size and incredible mega-pixel count. You can't change the fact of the sensor size. Sensor size means a lot when it comes to actual real world image quality!!
