Some of my favorite photos with the new Sony RX10. Its lens is 24-200mm equivalent with f2.8 aperture throughout. All have been edited in Lightroom 5.3. Some were shot as extra fine jpegs, those taken in Raw are indicated in the file name.
Gallery still under development.

It is somewhat stunning how many people have that FF bug in their head. The fact is that FF has a specific kind of picture that you get, and it's only advantage/disadvantage is shallower DOF. I do not now why this FF tick has infected so many people, but, as Tom C says, the limited focal range is an issue to many people and those who seek in depth sharpness look for a performing sensor like this on or any 4/3. 4/3 interchangeable lens system has the advantage, same as APSC to catch shallower DOF as well with fast lenses. On the opposite, a FF will never be able to catch full sharpness over the whole field in close range. In some way we all need 3 sensor formats all time to do all. Myself stick to APSC, despite that a camera in this format, or any APSC P&S could fit me as well. This RX10 is stunning in picture quality, even at 1250 ISO. If Sony could now make the price a bit more appealing, it would sell much better.
Tom Leroy -- I'm sure your right but then I'd have a much more limited focal range (and no autofocus). In any case I already have the Olympus E-M5 with some good/very good quality lenses. I think the value of the RX-10 is that it provides good (not great)quality under most circumstances while covering a wide focal range in a single convenient package. It's especially flexible and convenient for travel. In more challenging or more important circumstances I use my other gear.
Concerning over-exposure I don't think the Sony RX10 has a serious or consistent problem. What you see here may be mostly due to my personal preferences and/or perhaps my monitor is not calibrated quite right?
The RX10 looks pretty close to the Oly with kit lens. Seems to over expose though. For a few $$ more you could buy the Sony a7 with an old manual focus lens and blow them both away.
