utomo99: This is bigger sensor compared to Sony RX100 and Canon G7x. but look like not much people discuss about this. anybody know why ? because of the price or Brand ?
Please read: ropping it to allow for multi-aspect shooting (just as its predecessor did). Thus, the effective sensor area on the LX100 is really 1.5X larger than 1"1.5 x larger, it is very significant. I hope the pitucre quality is good. so the competition more hot. between Sony RX 1000 series, Canon G7x and also this panasonic LX100

I hope Fuji preparing big sensor camera on small body. 1 inch on the size of RX 100.
Panasonic please prepare new version: 1. Look at the cons list2. use New sensor which work better on low light. 3. Body redesign so it is better
George Veltchev: Surprisingly similar in every way to the Kodak Pixpro AZ522 released last year ... the same pea bean like size sensor, the same optical zoom, features and shape ... extraordinary way to bring some life into a failed project ... Bravo Ricoh ... Bravo Pentax !
They must use bigger sensor. they must use better sensor which work better on low light.
Sony need to prepare for the next model which is much better. lonegr zoom, better image. including on low light using new sensor. and many other things.
Tweak again the image quality so when it is launch to market the image quality will be good
when Olympus will release XZ-3 ?Olympus XZ-1 Announced Jan 6, 2011 • 10 megapixels | 3″ screen | 28 – 112 mm (4×)
Olympus XZ-2 iHSAnnounced Sep 17, 2012 • 12 megapixels | 3″ screen | 28 – 112 mm (4×)
I hope Olympus releasing the XZ-3 Soon. I hope they start with 24mm and also slimmer body
Canon must improve the products by releasing new firmware and apps. It is possible and not difficult. Easier WiFi also a must now. Keep improving the product
I hope Sony can solve / reduce some problems by firmware update. or on Newer production batch. and keep improving on the next version. Write what user want/ review complain and try to improve on next model.
any picture sample taken using this ? I think the price is too high.
1. Mega Pixel War, and it is Over. 2. Longer Zoom war, almost over. 3. Bigger Sensor War, Still running. 4. Better Sensitivity. So we can take Good picture on Low light. I hope it will start Next year.
Julio Sánchez: FZ50 true sucesor.I like my FZ50 why not this?The zoom ring in mechanical or motorized?
I guess it is motorized. But I hope it is mechanical
Canon need to work really hard to deliver new S series model. If they did not give something really great (with price lower than 500), they will not sell many cameras.
Sony need to add smart zoom by reducing the Mega pixel (cropping it). Example 120mm on 6Mp. I think it is good for many people. Release this function on next firmware release
Too expensive. And why no hdmi port? Why not using ssd for bigger storage?
Make a plugins so we can upload and view the video on our own website
obayedh: "we're a little worried that it might be another great camera that we just can't love"
We all know dp can't love Sony cameras! It's an open secret, isn't it!!?
Why Sony did not just add small grip? Just 2-3mm is okIt will be better.
Alphoid: This may seem like a highly unusual request, but please do compare digital zoom in the review. The RX100 is a bit short on the telephoto end. It has a 1" sensor, high megapixels, and a fast lens. A 2x digital zoom would still place it at, hypothetically, identical performance to a 5 megapixel image 1/2.3" camera with f/2.8 lens at 140mm equivalent, or a 1/1.7" 7MP sensor camera with an f/2.8 120mm-equivalent lens.
That's plenty for portraits in most settings if it works well.
"If it works well" is the key question. How does the autofocus system hold up? Do issues with lens sharpness kick in? Is it usable in that mode? Etc.
I hope Sony can add something like Panasonic do. Add the zoom by reducing the pixel. So we can get 140mm or more on 5Mpixel
Zoran K: "The lens is the big selling point of the RX100 III. With a maximum aperture of F1.8-2.8 and a focal range of 24-70mm equiv, you won't find anything as impressive on a compact camera."
Samsung EX2 has 24-80mm/f1.4-2.7 equivalent Lens
If samsung combine that fast lens with 1 inch or bigger sensor, it will be interesting compact camera
