Or, RX100 owners who are the Strong and Silent types
I'm fairly satisfied without an accessory grip, and I have large hands. I did buy two cases to try out, one of which is a retro leather type and with its bottom section attached and top off for using the camera, makes it very easy to hold. With the case top on and carried around my neck I look just like my father and his Kodak Retina! I take this setup to serious cocktail parties. I do have some sticky-backed black (fine grit) sandpaper and might consider putting a bit on, hopefully before I drop the camera.
I don't use filters much, the exception being polarizers, and those not often. Post-processing makes it easy to darken skies and increase saturation if needed.
I did get a ClearView thingie because I seem to need to squint through a monocular when taking pictures. Makes it feel like a real
camera. Actually, one of the benefits is I don't have to use reading glasses to change settings any more. Changing glasses during photography is a pain. With the ClearView I can read the LCD effortlessly.
What the RX-100 has done for me is make it possible to go out with my a580 and a 400mm lens AND have an everything-else camera along, all in one holster-type bag. I'm tired of horsing around two complete sets of DSLRs to do this. The IQ and flexibility of the RX100 is as good as the enthusiastic reviews say it is. I'm a happy guy.
