Sony RX 100 11

I've been enjoying the little RX 100 for the last few months as was pleased when Sony updated it with a couple of features that it was missing. As well as improving the sensor (better low light performance) they added a flip out screen, remote control (option) and Electronic Viewfinder (option). I haven't got the options yet as my local dealers are not stocking them but I will soon.
First impressions from this last week are that the sensor is about a 5% improvement.
I took it up to The Peak in Hong Kong on Thursday afternoon to shoot some panoramas and timelapse (with the Nikon D800 and Canon G1 X) and was impressed with the detail it picked up.
This is the original large jpeg file http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/9483488788/ of a Photomerge of two frames.
This is a video I shot in Wanchai while having lunch ( I had the salmon and a pear cider)

I have uploaded a large B & W file to Flickr to see the detail that the rx 100 M2 lens picks up.

I used the RX 100 M2 a lot in my recent trip to Botswana and was impressed with some of the photos.

Took the RX 100 M2 out to Lamma Island today for a sunrise breakfast.
Bright but a bit hazy.
The closeup of the pier was at full zoom - 100 mm.
