Reader Inquiry: Sony RX100 vs RX100 II

Michael C writes:

Any view on the Sony RX100 II?

I'm a happy RX100 user and don't like the extra bulk but a better sensor might be worthwhile.

DIGLLOYD: The sensor appears to be a little better. I own the original and I feel no compunction to upgrade on that basis: we’re talking about maybe 1/3 or 1/2 stop better and just taking the time to expose properly gets you that quite easily and one can also use a better raw converter for nicely clean images.

I’m unclear on the size/weight factor: the RX100 is just about perfect and the RX100 II has a 40g weight gain and slightly thicker profile. I haven’t handled it, and maybe those factors are of no consequence—I don’t know. But for some, the tilt screen might be a usability factor enjoyed.

Bottom line: I’d not spend the money myself.

What I WOULD go for is a version with a fixed lens 21mm or 24mm or 28mm f/1.2 or f/1.4 lens! It’s so small I could carry two focal lengths with two lenses performing at a very high level. I have little use for the modest sharpness (though very pleasing) and slow lens speed when zoomed out, the 28mm focal length being a favorite of mine.
