Strange that an model that starts with the a does not take a mount lens. Just sayin.......
"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."
The Pentax MX-1 comes with the same focal range with an aperture of 1.8-2.5.That is even more impressing than the RXIII. IMHO the image quality of the MX-1 beats that of the RXI and II due to the superior lens. Don't know about the RXIII though. The RXIII is the first of the RX series that makes me curious...
70mm? I gladly tolerate f4 at 110mm but 70 is just too short.The EVF is a huge step forward. Canon seems to have fallen asleep in this category/class of camera.
Amazingly enough. V 2 still works with win7. Not perfectly but still a great viewer.
J D Tranquil: I would love to see a change in IQ rather than the added wi-fi capability. I just want the RX100 so badly.
Ditto. Although I love the Canon menu system, I kinda think they missed the boat on this one.
Sorry but If I want a camera that has interchangeable lens, I want a better selection of more than 2,3,4 lenses and a real viewfinder. Or if it's small then something with a 1" sensor I can put in my pants pocket and forget about it. But I guess they really are not targeting me as a customer.
PC and macs definitely an article for religious times weekly. I have seen the ipad 3 and the retina display is to die for. I think this innovation is great. I can hardly wait til it comes to the pc, which it will and cost half as much. I had last weeks generation of mac air and sold it. I have a couple of programs that the mac version basically gutted. And I found the O/S to be to frustrating and most mac users could not help me as what I was doing was too complicated. I would not like to see the world without macs. And definitely glad they are not the only choice. Displays aren't relevant in photography magazines???
I have the S90 and love it. The biggest selling point to me was it's pocket size. Which means that I put it in my pants pocket every day and forget that it's there. So I am never without it. That's something that I don't think can be said about the competition. I like the on/off button as I was always pushing the wrong button when trying to get off a quick shot. Just a different shaped button would have been nice. I already have a grip so I am not sure the addition is welcome til I try it. The wider lens is great as I always buy P&S with the widest possible and have paid a premium for such when it was rare. I never had a problem with the battery as I carry 2 extras on vacation. In day to day use rotate after regularly. The video upgrade is the one thing I felt was lacking on the S90. It was just too tiny and 1080p is what I wanted from day one.
