    Great Little Camera, Fantastic Picture Quality. This is my second RX100 and I still love the line. I sold my RX-IV for 80% of what I paid for it. These things hold their value. Here is my thought, if it is too large to pocket then I don’t care how good the camera is, it will probably sit at home or at the hotel. I don’t want to be bogged down with lenses and so on. Fortunately, this is also a great camera, and high quality all in a tiny package. For this version (VA) you sacrifice a longer zoom lens for a faster lens in low light (compared to the VI or VII). Add to it the fact you can take 1080P or 4K videos and you have a fantastic all around shooter. I was recently on a cruise with a professional photographer. He had a giant camera, but he (and his wife) also had an RX-III and RX V. Guess what, 90% of the time we were together they were using the RX instead of the giant SLR camera. I added to this a 52mm lens adapter and lenses for UV and a Variable ND filter. I have some very minor nits that may or may not bug you. 4K video is limited to 5 minutes. 1080P video is limited to 30 minutes. No external microphone jack. Otherwise I 100% love it. At a recent concert in Vienna, I had to record in 1080P and had to constantly check when the 30 minutes ran out, wait for the camera to cool down, then restart the recording. Again, not the end of the world. I highly recommend this. If you don’t care about ultra low light, then look at the VI or VII. They are both very capable, just not as sensitive.
