I was interested in the P7700 until I heard they added a lens cap. For my purposes, I have no interest in a view finder or hot shoe; compact size with high IQ is most important for me.
As for the grip on the RX100, just get the aftermarket grip like they have on the Canon S90 and S95 and your set.
The G12 successor interest me alot less than what they might do with the S100, but I am still concerned Canon is not focusing on their performance issues as we have seen in the G1X, S100, and G12. Put that next to the RX100 and it is downright fast.
Very true; we all know a G12 and S100 successor are coming; the question is WHEN? LOL
Saw another raving review on cnet today for the RX100 so my pocket is ready, but I do want to see what Canon does with the G12 and S100 successor. I don't see the price of the RX100 dropping anytime soon, but will to give it another month and if nothing from Canon transpires, the Sony it is. Either way, I am still thinking the RX100 might outperform both of them especially when it comes to focusing and overall performance.
With only weeks to go before Photokina I wonder wether Canon will give anything further away?
In the last few months we have had the two latest Powershots which did not include a G12 successor, the G1X and the EOS M.
Surely they have to keep something up their sleeve for the show. Especially after the Sony RX 100 and now the Nikon P7700 being announced and stealing thunder (looks interesting). As to the latter it looks almost like a G12 rip off apart from the better lens and BL CMOS, sensor even to the size, weight and the articulated screen! I wonder how Canon can top that?
I must admit I was sorely tempted by the RX100 until the Nikon P7700 was announced. It looks so much like what I might have expected a G12 to be that with the lower price than the RX 100, the longer brighter zoom and the articulated screen that for me, if no G12 successor is announced by Photokina, my money will go on the Nikon. I am almost tempted to pre-order one now but I am going to be patient and wait till Photokina. I almost forgot to add, the RX has no hot shoe or grip!
