David Pogue is deeply, wildly in love with Sony's new high-end "pro's second camera", the RX100.
So I was thinking of trying to find an excuse to buy it to replace my S95. But then I realized that other than interchangeable lenses, and sensor size, it seems to have better specs in almost every way than my E-PL2, which I use for my "real" (amateur) pictures.
- It's a lot smaller, and can fit in my pants pockets
- It's got a bigger aperture than the kit lens and a comparable one to the Pany pancake I usually have on it
- It has much faster focus
- It has a faster burst rate
- It has more megapixels, which I don't generally care about, but they don't hurt, either.
- It has much higher max ISO for low light shooting
I know it's not widely available yet, and that there are a lot of intangibles. And I get that the ability to put on better glass is a big tradeoff, but lets assume I don't care about that. How much advantage, if any, will that sensor difference give to the Olympus? Based on the specs, which is likely to take better overall shots?
