I think this topic was approved for a slight digression by Mike: I remember he was endorsing the Sony RX100. I'm a noob and just looking for a compact camera. There's a deal on Sony NEX-6 + kit lens on Amazon now, I'd love to get a brief on how it compares against the first make of the RX. It looks like the NEX is heavier, bigger, and more advanced overall. If it's correct, I don't know if I need this.
