An improved RX100M. Perfect size and the OLED screen really does the job. Worth every penny.

Purchased the RX100M3 as a secondary camera to my Canon 7D. I'm really happy with my 7D but sometimes I don't want to carry around all that gear. The RX100M3 is a great little camera with all the controls I want. I can feel confident that I can take this camera with me and not regret leaving my 7D at home. Image quality is very good, although I feel that Lightroom's support for this camera's RAW files is not 100% there just yet. I've been very impressed by the video quality from this little camera. Shooting with the XAVC S codec provides some great results. My 7D can shoot great video but having pretty good auto focus and image stabilization makes it much more useful (and easy) with this camera.Great little camera, very happy with it.
