Any comments about the steadyshot?
Can the LCD be turned off manually when using the EVF to save power?
mpgxsvcd: Does anyone hate this camera?
Canon, Nikon, Samsung, Olympus, Panasonic,Pentax, etc.
SushiEater: Is this a first lens ever to come out in Nikon mount first before Canon?
Too bad they couldn't get it out before Nikon's own! Talk about missed opportunity.
BPD7: Why is everyone harping on the price? This is MSRP. That is never the actual price, and prices always drop with technology.
A lot of early adopters here.
I don't know what's this T* thing but they must really love it to put it in 3 places on the camera!
zakka: Many good things about this camera, but the previous was already barely pocketable, and this one is actually thicker. Moreover, the lens is indeed brighter and impressive, but gets "dark" really fast, that's a disappointment.I would personally take the G1X II which seems more versatile to me, in spite of the lower quality sensor; but if you really need an EVF, then that sony seems the obvious choice.
I like that the lens ring sort of sticks out more. It was too close to the body to use comfortably.
Charles Hsu: Now very excited for what Sony can pull off with successor to RX1
That was the RX1R.
cgarrard: " The RX100 III has lost the hot shoe that was found on the RX100 II, though we imagine that most people will think the EVF was worth the trade-off."
Yes, its definitely worth the tradeoff. I've known no one that has ever used a full sized flash on a hotshoe on a compact camera.
The only things I attached to the hot shoe on the Mk2 were1) the EVF2) the hot shoe cover
Retzius: sony is seriously fearless
nikon and canon could learn something here
If they make a QX100Mk2 then they are truly fearless.
This is just sticking to what works.
Jeff Fenske: DPReview, your reviews are very informative, and greatly appreciated, but you've been neglecting one key issue, which hasn't been fair to other cameras which do have good IMAGE STABILIZATION.
Whether it's improved or not, please cover Image Stabilization for still photos in your coming complete review, this time, since IS has been the RX100's achilles heel, as a commenter rightly called it — clearly subpar compared to probably all other compacts in this category.
IS is extremely important for compact cameras, which are almost always handheld, IS being the compact camera's tripod substitution.
I think the credit goes to your wife for that one.
Gonini: its getting bigger and heavier, not nice
Saving the hot shoe for Mk IV.
sean lee: wow…RX100 ii was also good and popular and it is getting better.But I find it's body design is little boring for my taste. Why sony keep same body design?I think only competitor is Lumix GM1. Next GM1 should introduce with hot shoe for EVF.
So they can continue to sell the stick on grip.
Gonini: all this excitement for a pop up evf?better review if the rx100 III can do correct skin tones, rx100 and rx100II couldnt get correct ones or if the IS has gotten better for this model
I thought the excitement was for the new lens and selfie lcd.
I like the Stylus 1 picture, you can appreciate how tight they package the lens in there.
Prognathous: Ugliest camera ever?
Its like we're back to the early 2000s when everyone was still experimenting with different form factors.
I would like to see Olympus tackle this FL & aperture and see what they can come up with w/o OIS.
They haven't try to sell one MFT lens for more than a $1000, unlike Pany.
Dennis: I wish someone would make a fixed lens UW camera with one of the 'premium' digicam sensors (1/1.7" through the Sony 1" sensor) and something like a fixed f/2 lens at 28mm equivalent.
With wireless charging and wireless upload, so no chance of any seals breaking due to user error.
Jogger: Is this a telescoping zoom?? Looks far too compact for a 600mm.
"Ingenious optical design features minimize the movement of lens groups within the lens when zooming. This reduces the amount of barrel extension needed to cover the complete focusing range, making the entire lens more compact."
So in a word - yes.
brownie314: Wait, are we supposed to believe that DPR doesn't already have this body and have been testing it? I know they have to play dumb, just seems kinda weird that they post this like it is a surprise. I know they already have this body. I can't remember a major camera announcement over the past few years that didn't have a DPR "first impressions review" within a few hours of it being announced. I can only conclude that they have special access to these bodies.
Yeah, they have the liberty to only post 'rumors' that they know is true, so they won't look bad later with some wrong info.
Josh SZ: I even don't think you can call it "silver" edition because the body is totally black.
I would suggest Leica just focusing on its lens business…
Ze Germans are terrible with products with color names.
Mercedes AMG Black series aren't all black either, unless they say the tires are black - just like how they're saying the lens is silver here.
