When I want to take decent pictures I've been taking my 12 oz Canon G5. The time has come to replace it and I've heard many wonderful things about the 8 oz Sony RX100. The price is slowly dropping ($569 last I looked), and I probably will replace it this Fall.
Do you think the RX100 is the current best choice to replace my old G5? I'm not a serious photographer by any means, but I'm willing to carry a heavier camera if it takes better pictures, and I understand how to use some advanced camera features.
Also, anyone have experience with the underwater case for the RX100 (Ikelite and maybe others)? It's still pretty expensive, $350 last I looked, more than I'm willing to spend, maybe the cost will come down or another manufacturer will make a less expensive case for it.
