Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Digital Camera Review$649.99
Chromatic aberration is one way in which the RX100 does lag behind the Canon S100 and G1 X, albeit very slightly. Shoot at close and medium focal lengths and you'll find your shots are largely free of fringing. However we did finally catch some blue fringes in our fully zoomed test shots. Bear in mind, the RX100 is still an excellent performer in this metric, just not quite as good as Canon's best fixed-lens models.
Barrel distortion is corrected in real time, even before the image is output to the LCD for framing. The most distortion we detected was 0.53% at the widest focal length, and numbers this low essentially make distortion a complete non-issue. We're awarding full points here.
