Pogue pogues the Sony RX100!

As he previously teased, David Pogue of the New York Times has published his review of the Sony RX100, with real-world sample pictures at Smugmug. Thanks to one of our readers for the alert.

If you are familiar with Gaelic, the blog-post title reveals the review outcome. Or if you remember Pogue's previous comment on what gear he purchased. To cut a long story short, he is not shy about superlatives, he calls it, "... best pocket camera ever made".

Canon, Panasonic, Nikon and others have been making compacts with RAW the last few years, but a common complaint among photographers who love the compact-with-RAW cameras is that the manufacturers had been sitting on the ball for the most part, trying to milk as much as they could out their existing designs, while avoiding to take any risks or go deeper in their playbooks. Perhaps the RX100 will force their hand?
