Excerpt: After been a Nikon man for over 40 years. Owning full frames Nikons I took a chance and ordered the Sony RX10. To make a long story short this will be my main camera from now own. Excellent is and understatement.
Excerpt: A good deal. The case is all leather, old school. Great for traveling to protect the camera. Only thing is I wish it was 2 16 gig cards and not 1 32. I don't like to have so many pics on one card just in case something happens.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution
Excerpt: I now own the Sony RX100M3, a6000, A7, and now the RX10. I find myself naturally gravitating to the RX10, not matter whether it is for video, portraits, candids, street photography, travel, kids, or whatever, unless I need the extra resolution and tonal range of the A7, pocketability of the RX100M3, or focus speed of the a6000.The RX10 is just that good and the lens is amazing sharp.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I bought a Panasonic GX1 a year or so ago, for occasions when I might happen upon a grab shot, but did not want to carry my Canon DSLRs. They Panasonic is a nice solid little camera, but has an annoyingly noisy shutter, somewhat clumsy ergonomics, and I've never been very pleased with the picture quality.
Summary: The Sony DSC-RX10 is a great alternative to large DSLRs, and has outstanding low-light performance. I've been shooting on Nikon DSLRs for the past 10 years and I've loved the creative options that all the manual controls give me. Yet, those DSLRs (first the Nikon D70 and then the Nikon D7000) are relatively large cameras (although not full-frame) and a kit with several lenses can take up a lot of space and can be relatively heavy.

Summary: First, I am not a photographer and only use auto mode and scene selections on it. I'd say I'm a pretty average user, not an expert and this camera made for a guy like me. I bought it almost a year ago and I absolutely love it! Switched from Canon after many years. Most of us always have our smartphone handy and therefore no need another compact camera.
Summary: Wow, love this camera. I've had an RX100 the past two years and had spent the past eight months debating next step. I considered several of the new-gen mirrorless DSLRs but really had weight and size on my mind (this camera is mainly for backpacking). Finally settled on the RX10. LOVE it. Ergonomics are great -- it handles very well and one-hands easily. Zoom range is extremely useful. Fast Zeiss lens offers great image quality.
