All excellent images and I don't think it gets much better than this. Sony certainly hit the jackpot with the HX100. The new 16 Mp sensor is excellent. I recently bought the HX20 and took it to Hawaii on our family trip. I was very pleased with the results I obtained from it. In fact, I hardly used my two m4/3 cameras (G3 and EPL1 with various lenses) I also brought along. Three of my fav cameras to date were Sony (R1, H1 and A300). If I hadn't invested so much $$$ on m4/3, I'd certainly buy the HX100.
