The RX100 does not have a sensor size even close to APS-C, it is a 2.7 crop.  However, it is the best compact camera on the market bar none, yes.

Speaking of cameras, I have both a Fujifilm X-10 and X-100 and both are excellent. I prefer the viewfinder and general performance of the X-10 but having the zoom on the X-100, as well as the smaller size, is certainly convenient.

Few things arrived in the mail in the last week:

Looking forward to changing out the crappy stock strap on my Timex Easy Reader for one of these. Now if only the Germans would hurry up with their postage and get the Junghans Max Bill to me... the suspense is killin' me!

 

The Aspinal Cardholder also arrived - so much nicer in the pocket than a full wallet I must say:

Might post a picture of the Thomas Lyte briefcase when I get the chance as well.

Both the straps and the credit card wallet look very nice. I look forward to hearing more about the briefcase.

Are Aspinal made in England/U.K?

 

Prices are a bit to cheap to give me confidence of their quality and construction.

 

thanks.

Don't have any experience of apartment hotels in Sydney I'm afraid. Not sure what your budget / length of stay is however, but you might like to check out https://www.airbnb.com.au/; Seems to be great for that sort of thing, I've used them to book a hotel apartment in KL.

I stand corrected - confused with the new RX1 sensor .. but it is a LARGE sensor for a compact

From the cardholder's product-page:

 

Quote:
Handmade from the finest London Tan Italian calf Leather with each hidden pocket luxuriously finished with our signature "knight's helmet" monogrammed silk lining hand embroidered in England. This gorgeous Aspinal Slim Credit Card Case will elegantly and securely hold up to six cards.

 

They are a steal for the price in my opinion - you're right they're cheaper than their competitors, but Aspinal has a fairly good reputation from what I can gather. Then again, I don't know if they're particularly 'cheap' either - their briefcases start at 495 GBP (see also: http://www.aspinaloflondon.com/eshop-catalogue/mens-collection/business-cases/slim-attache-case/6351-35-slim-attache-case-in-smooth-dark-tan-and-espresso-suede). Their best deals tend to be in the wallet arena.

Thanks Smudge. Some nice places on there.

Ate at Chin Chin on Saturday night. Many thanks for the tip off. It was a big success all round and thanks for the warning about neck issues. Managed to score a table in the corner bar overlooking the kitchen with great view of restaurant and enabled us to talk to the very talented Exec Chef (Benjamin Cooper), lovely bloke. Very, very highly recommend their Baramundi (spell check wants to change that last word to "Barmaid" biggrin.gif). Awesome service and food was sensational.

Ended up having brunch at Hardware Street Societé (?), highly recommend their baked eggs... Thinking about canning the idea of moving back to UK and moving to Melbourne instead but we reckon we'd be enormous if I lived in a city with such great food, everywhere!

What are all these gizmos you mob are talking about? RX1, APS-C?.. Sounds like alphabet soup to me...

Here's a photo of my soul stealer:



All hail Ned Ludd!
