Are those diagonal stripes across the UPC bar codes on the original box?  If added by the camera, it really ruins the image.

What "diagonal stripes across the UPC bar codes" are you talking about? I don't see it ???
All three of the bar codes have stripes on the posted image as viewed on my monitor, which is why I was wondering if they were actually there.  Others are seeing them as well.
 
I downloaded the image and noted that there were no stripes, but there appeared to be a lot of NR.  Cameras do add NR, even if turned off, and if its set to "Normal", they add more with high ISO.  Its pretty typical of all cameras at high ISO using jpeg.
 
Can you process a raw image and clean it up so we can see what the camera can really do at its best?
 
Try resizing the image to 800 pixels on the longest side.  That will prevent the built in resize software in the forum from causing any issues, but it will also prevent viewers from downloading the full size file, so that's unfortunate.  Still, only a few download it for every thousand that view the image as posted.
 


I don't raw files, just JPEG. It's "normal" NR in camera setting.

I took this picture with Sony RX100II, in low light. This is 3200ISO, JPEG straight out from camera, zero PP.

RX1 & RX 100 II always amazed me...body size and IQ.

Just incase anyone interested to see the remaining photos:

1st picture was taken this morning, around 5:30AM California time, indoor,with little light at 3200ISO. The remaining photos were taken this afternoon with decent lighting, next to patio door. All jpeg files. Copied straight from camera - zero PP.

The RX100 II is a great small camera for this type of work. It fits in jean and shirt pocket well. It delivers great IQ, even in JPEG. I carry this camera to work everyday.

Ohhh...almost forgot, please excuse my crappy composition:P

It is certainly great as to the advances made in digital cameras since my first Fujifilm MX700 in 1998.  I recently bought a vintage 6MP Kodak DCS 460C from 1995 ($35,500 originally), and it could do about ISO 80 max.  Now, many shoot at ISO 3200 and higher with impunity.  I also remember the Polaroid ASA 2000 B&W film that would let you shoot by candlelight, but never quite lived up to that for me.  (I think you had to increase the developing time to make it work.)
 
Have fun with it!!
