Title says it all, can't decide between these nice cameras. At the moment I own a simple Sony point and shoot, but I want to get more involved with my photography and try to be more creative. I've been reading a lot about photography and about the basics: aperture, ISO etc. So now I want buy one of these to test it all out. . I don't want a full fledged DSLR because I'm just starting out and it's just a hobby, I don't want to start spending too much on the body + lens. Sony RX-100 Sony NEX 5R I really like them both and I don't think the 5R will be too big to carry around. I only intend to use it during my vacations and special occasions. But I like how simple the RX-100 is looking and I don't have to worry about other lenses. As I don't intend to buy more of them (maybe a pancake in the future). The 5R does have a bigger sensor, but from the image examples I've seen, the IQ doesn't seem to be big or even noticeable. Maybe even better on the RX 100. At night, the 5R will have the advantage. I've read a lot on these cameras and know probably every bit of into about them, but it doesn't help too much without actually using them for a while and seeing how it feels when comparing. So I'm asking the people who own any of these cameras, are you happy it with and how do you know they compare to each other. Thanks.
