..well I'm a full time professional photographer shooting mainly commissioned work. I also shoot stock for imagesource in Uk.

 I shoot with 5d2 and 3 . I can answer my own question to an extent;  i.e. submit to library and see what they say (maybe this is a non question!), but I was wondering if any members of this forum had any experience of shooting stock with a mirrorless compact?

Kind Regards T

I shoot a 5D3 and have an RX100 for backup which I used in Patagonia when my 24-105 failed.  I don't shoot stock, but have a good idea what's required.  As long as you're not trying to shoot high ISO I don't see any problem shooting stock.  you may want to test longer focal length where edge resolution gets a bit soft.

Just running through the stops at all focal lengths is fairly instructive. The worst performance I see is when stopped down to f11 where it really looses it's appeal, f5.6 seems to be the optimum at all focal lengths in my tests.

Just saw this thread. Thanks for the info re best aperture.

Two things I would like to see in a long overdue firmware upgrade are a larger histogram that was also made RGB. There's plenty of room for it on the big screen.

Second improvement would be blown highlight warning.

Both vital for proper manual exposure and both available in the RX100's Canon competitors.
