disappointed with SONY RX-10.
6 months ago

the autofocus on sony rx10 in evening indoors in low to mod light at anything beyond 75mm is slow as compared to any dslr. i have rx100ii and bought rx10 to replace my d7000 but there is no way it can compete with the focusing speed of any dslr. it is even slower than the rx100ii.
the video is fine but my d5200 is excellent as compared to rx10 video.
today i am returning my rx10 and the main reasons are:

  1. autofocus is very slow indoors in low to moderate light at 75mm and beyond even wide open. have to wait 1-2 secs and my kids dont stay still for that long.
  2. detail smudging is much worse than rx100ii at iso 3200 and 6400. i did direct 1-1 comparison under identical conditions.
  3. bokeh is horrible if the iso is at 2000+. so if you plan to take pics indoors and iso is at 3200 the bokeh will be very bad.
  4. video is fine but rx100ii is better due to brighter lens and when you jack up the iso to 6400 or more video gets very noisy. so for indoors rx100ii video is much better beacuse you can stick with lower iso at f1.8.
    also d5200 video is ages better.
    just to let you know that i have done a direct comparison b/w rx100ii and rx10 side by side same settings and they very similar, rx100ii looks a bit sharper but rx100ii wins coz at f1.8 3200 iso the rx10 is at 6400+ iso due to f2.8 lens and due to that it looks worse.
