$2799 for a kit...

You can buy the Sony A77 II kit for $1000 less

Nice pricing, Samsung

Menneisyys: As it only as the old, inferior 20 Mpixel Sony sensor also used in the A3000 and the A5000, the QX1 is definitely DoA.

PS.: I'm aware of HowAboutRAW's stating this sensor isn't noisier than the 24 Mpixel one of the A6000. I don't agree with his statement and this is why in no way consider QX1 at this price a good buy. With the 24 Mpixel sensor, it could be, but definitely not with the old, cheap 20 Mpixel one.

okay show me a camera AT HALF THE PRICING, that does even remotely the same IQ. Find it on DXO

Weather sealed body for their non weather sealed lenses? Sweet...

In reply to:

Rob Sims: Two fast zoom's Sony's e-mount could really do with:
1. 16-55/2.8.
2. 50-140/2.8

...and two useful fast primes (one already available):
1. 56/1.2
2. 90/2.0

Sony already has equivalent 24-70 and 70-200 f4

In reply to:

hrt: With a 400mm equivalent, I wonder how the camera can prevent shakes and how the sensor can manage noise at lighter ISO's.
If I have to carry a tripod for this camera, it wouldn't make so much sense to pay extra dollars, as these kinds of cameras would be my travel buddy.

You might look into the B.O.S.S system :P

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

saralecaire: Still more expensive than the brand new and 4K capable Panasonic FZ1000.

You forget that rx10 is 8 months old now, thats why no 4k. What 4k cameras were available 8 months ago? Only ones that cost $8000+

As the review says, the Panasonic cameras build quality is like any other plastic bridge camera... That is AWFUL if you have ever picked up ANY plastic bridge camera, yuck.

what does brand new have to do with anything?

-no constant 2.8
-no weather sealing
-no ND filter
-no top screen
-no metal body
-no clickless ring
-no full sensor readout (have not heard a peep about that)

This is supposed to be a video camera also right?

I would rather have quality than stuff you can put on a marketing ad.

Nukunukoo: We have two RX10s for video (attached to Ninja 2s) and for a few months now, I can say that it sure matches and even edges out the 5D3 especially on low light! They're great on gymballs especially with their weight and remotely zoomable lens. They are not perfect though, sub-par focusing methods and sure would be great if it can use a touch focus system, especially via tablets. A better CODEC like the RX100M3 would be very welcome, and a faster zoom would be fab.

Do that on the next RX10 and you have a Wedding Video Killer!

Many seem to favor zoom length over lens quality. The zoom range is fine for me. I'd take fixed aperture any time.

You complain about the slow zoom, but then you tell me, you would buy $300 in PRIME lenses. Good luck with your prime lenses. Tell me how that goes when you're doing an event.

"A GH4 with a bag of legacy lenses will noticeably outperform the AX100 with its F/2.8-F/4 lens for the same price."

ax100 is $2000
GH4 is $1700 body only

what lens does it have (especially a power zoom) that covers that $300 budget?

In reply to:

Marty4650: Serious underwater photography was always done with DSLRs tightly sealed in very expensive waterproof enclosures. But for underwater snapshots, these cameras are great.

This whole category ("underwater snapshot cameras") might disappear if the iPhone 6 is waterproof.

I suppose a waterproof tablet could be next?

Sony has a waterproof tablet and phone, its been out for a year.

EthanP99: why not have Sony's xperia z2 tablet instead? Its thinner, lighter and WATERPROOF

Unsharp photos huh, well i guess having top spot in image quality does not mean anything im guessing. Also software bugs on a stock android base? Theres almost no mods to the android on sony phones...

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 article (102 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lab D: This will be VERY popular and may kill any sales of the Sony AX100 which is a camcorder (Who still buys those?) which costs $1100 more but with same sensor and similar lens, and also the RX10 which is $400 more and can't do 4K.

Oh you mean the camcorder that records xavcs(which the panasonic cannot do), has optional 12 hour battery, a touchscreen, unlimited video recording time, better video adjustment, built in ND and better ergonomics for video? I can see why someone wouldnt want the ax100 now... Xavcs is a good enough reason to buy the ax100 over panasonics fz1000
