If you have read my previous post, you'll know that I'm quite the fan of smaller cameras. Although I have a DSLR (a Nikon D7000 to be precise), I find that I don't use it as much as I would like simply because it's too large to have on me all of the time. I suspect I'm not alone in this.
This preference for a smaller camera is made even more important for me because I spend much of my photography time on a motorcycle.
For the last few years, I've been using a Canon G11 for my compact camera. This is a great little camera, and I have produced some of my best work with it. I was, however, aware that the image quality was not quite up to that possible with the DSLR. Given the advantages of size, and the ever-present knowledge that it's not about the camera, I was quite happy with the little Canon though.
That was until I saw the Sony DSC-RX100M III.
I had seen the previous version—still a very capable camera—before, but had rejected it
