  • Lack of Mic socket undermines video
  • No in-camera Raw conversion
  • No external charger included

Conclusion from DPReview:

The RX100 VI is a very capable camera, combining a flexible zoom range with impressive autofocus. However, the small maximum aperture required to keep the size down limits the image quality in some situations. The relatively high price means you have to really want its unequaled combination of capability and size.
