Engadget Summary

Sony takes everything that made the RX100 a success and improves upon it, adding a new sensor, articulating LCD display, and a hot shoe. However, with a price tag increased by $100, it may be hard to justify upgrading to the RX100 II over its predecessor. Though the RX100 already took good pictures Sony wasn't satisfied, putting a new sensor inside the RX100 II that results in "magnificent pictures" according to Gizmodo, and Camera Labs says "it's genuinely better at higher sensitivities." While the RX100 maintains its small build and premium feel, What Digital Camera says it still "lacks any form of handgrip." As for speed, TechRadar says the focus speeds on "the original Sony RX100 were excellent, and continue to be so on the Sony RX100 Mark II." The one issue with the RX100 II is its cost, coming in at $100 more than the RX100. If you feel the new feature set is worth it, then splurge for the RX100 II. Otherwise, you can pick up the RX100 and still get fantastic results.
