  • Pros: Small size, great image quality, good video options.
  • Cons: Small size, great image quality, good video options.

  • Conclusion: Hallelujahs and cheers greeted the original RX100, with one critic going so far as to claim it was the best compact ever. (The RX100, by the way, is still available, now for $150 less.) The RX100 II keeps the momentum going, and offers the best image quality you can get out of a compact.
