No EVF?
In reply to Jennyhappy2, 7 months ago

There is a manual for download at that site. Look like RX100MIII does not have an EVF?

That manual appears to be for the M2.

Note that the link is not to an official Sony site. Instead it is to a Sony Centre web site. I don't know about the rest of the world but in the UK Sony Centres are not part of Sony. They are simply electrical retailers with Sony franchises.

The official Sony Luxmburg site has no mention of the RX100 M3.

must admit I am very happy with the present version so certainly am not interested in a shorter focal length but wider would be nice. Really feel no need to upgrade thank goodness.

I have the original RX100, and passed on the Mk.II, but 24 mm, faster (albeit shorter) telephoto range, and EVF might just tip the balance for me.  I'm willing to give up sone tele reach for a wider angle.  Hope the new lens is otherwise as good as or better than the original.

Price is about right. Sony's business model here is bring out a new and improved model at a higher price while still selling the older version. In this case, the two models are sufficiently different I think.

In a few months, the m2 will be at end of life, the price of the m3 will be down, and rumours of the m4 will surface. And so on.

Having said that, im just gonna stick with my m1.. most of my shots are at the wide end, piont and forget type shots. Im not using this for portraits or similar.

I'm certainly interested in this camera... I already own a few others (A7r, Fujis, Ricoh GR), so I don't need to compare the value of this vs. some other mirrorless... I can just see the advantages of having this on me at all times.

Probably one of the biggest selling points is the size in relation to sensor size.  Then with the significant faster lens on the M3 vs M2, the price seems about right.

I could almost see spending $800, but at over $1000, I would be out of the market on principle.

From store.sony.ca, the list price in CAD is $899. most likely, the us list price will be $849, which is 100$ more expensive than MII but with EVF.

Good chance there will be sale from some retailer to knock it below $800, maybe even $700, within 5 months from launch. Just need to pay attention.

Like the $935 sale of the RX10 from Adorama a while back.

$899 CAD.. will is translate directly into USD?

That is the max USD price. More likely it will be $850 USD.

Oh, I agree, I always said for the original I would prefer/accept 24-80 to get a 24 start. I guess to keep lens pants pocketable, and get good corners without diffraction at f2.8 they had to stop at 70mm.

Thickness: only 3/16" thicker than original (thickness of control ring), 20% heavier though. Tighten your belt. With pop up EVF? How the hell have they done that?

With my beloved CIZ, that's 140mm at 20mp, and I will drop down to 10mp to get even more effortless upscaled 'in-camera' zoom.

As someone pointed out, when you zoom a bit, the aperture closes, so this brighter lens starting at 24mm is terrific.

LCD now goes 180 degrees. Still wish it would swivel and a touch lcd to set focus point would be a terrific improvement.

Many other subtle improvements when you read the full specs here (in the thread's text, the web page is not working for me now)
