I'm still 1 year on looking at what to buy. Lurking on here has given a lot of insight but im still lost. The Rx100 is seeming great but is not cheap for the fact its macro is not 100 percent.
I do want a semi versatile camera and as im investing I do want to ensure its going to be future proofed.
I do know I want more than 12MP as I have a large set of walls I would like to display a few bits of my work as I get better. A0 on 12MPs is not quite enough!
So The RX ticks 99% of the boxes but its macro is soft. The other option in the PEN Olympus that seems to get a lot of attention. There seems to be some questions on viewfinders and ease of function but not clear on which models to steer away from. I like the idea I could change a lens if my photography type changes or my dive is going to be more in the blue than near coral or rocks.
The total cost is similar and both seem very portable still and that is a key want.
