    Hmm I will check the AF settings, good point.

    I am now in the UK for 2 weeks so away from my PC so won't be able to post some photos... however will do some more testing with the settings (I have my camera with me) and let you know if it helps. :)

    Yes MKIII here, it feels quite a natural way of shooting after coming from a DSLR. Also good in bright conditions.

    I don't have much experience with DSLRs, so maybe that's why I'm struggling to justify using the viewfinder. Is it supposed to be sharp and in focus?, because I can't bloody make anything out, stating to think I need glasses. :rolleyes:


    On a side note, there was a firmware update for the MKIV. Might be worth checking if there's possibly one for the other MKs.

    Also on the mk3 don't you have to pull it back a few mm? Could be wrong just remember reading about it (I have a mk2)

    Yes it pops up then you need to pull it back (revealing the diopter adjustment on the top of it).

    Ah, seems I'm not half blind then, all nice and sharp in focus. Never realised you had to pull the EVF back. Cheers for that.

    :)

    Now you pulled it back, also check the diopter adjustment lever on the top of the viewfinder, adjust it to match your prescription :)

    I see you sold your LX100 {SAS}TB, a good choice ;). Nothing against the LX100 but in the compact stakes, it loses out to the RX100.

    Here's a shot I took last year in a warmer place.

    Yes mate, there is absolutely no comparison when it comes to portability - you need a small bag / case or a large pocket for the LX100, the RX100 quite easily (and quite often does) fits into jeans pockets and takes awesome pictures.

    No regrets at all :D

    Am certainly very pleased with mine. Still keeping my DSLR but nice to have something significantly more pocketable!

    On a different note, has anybody found any lens profiles for Lightroom for this series? Or specifically the Mk4? Every other camera under the sun there but not this.

    Just picked up a RX100m4, love it so far. Compared to my 5DMKIII its a breeze to carry all day long.
    So far the images are of a comparable quality, at least to me, and of what I have taken so far.

    Need some reccomendations on cases though, what is best? Also, is there a way to turn off the information screen every time i change a mode? I just want to take a picture.

    I use a Tarion £7 case from Amazon - can't fault it so far tbh, well worth the low price!

    re: mode info: It's called "Mode Dial Guide" in settings - switch it off. (on my mk2, anywho)
