Stephen Scharf: You've got to feel for Fuji....they do the right thing for customers, and they get bashed for it.

They put out a wonderful and significant enhancement to a superb camera FOR FREE, and they get bashed. They don't put out a free enhancement, and they get bashed.

They must feel they are damned if they do, and damned if they don't.

Fortunately they have a good heart and good spirit, so even though they get bashed either way, they still do the right thing.

Kudos, Fuji....you continue to lead by example!

Oh so fuji has never abandoned a system huh? *cough* fuji slr *cough*

Sony actually has never abandoned a system. Sorry to burst your bubble.

DVT80111: is it just me? I did not see a huge different in IQ from RX100.

4k, 120fps near 1080, 960 fps, super fast AF speed, improved EVF (over mark 3 version), anti jello in video

its a much better camera by other means.

also, its not released yet so lets wait.

drivecancel: I bought a Fujifilm X100 used and upgraded it to FW 2.0 instead of buying an RX100, looking at the studio tests I made the right choice! (had to use X100S results)

By your reasoning, my rx1r is my better choice over your x100

Jennyhappy2: Refer to below on the IV advantage:
By Rishi Sanyal
"To everyone wondering what the advantages of the improved sensors (mainly faster sensor readout) are - aside from the obvious: 4K and high fps stills and video - please wait for a sneak peak at this camera's AF tracking capabilities in continuous AF. We'll publish a quick look that I think may turn some heads."

Like I said in my other comment, I think the main advantage of this camera and the rx10 is that the af is much improved, its claim is .09 seconds which would make it the fastest non ilc camera currently I believe.

Af is supposed to be .09 sec vs. .06 for the a6000. Thats a big improvement in af for the rx series.

King of Song: After reading some of the comments, it occurred to me that most people here don't understand how difficult it is to build a lens that is 100% faster than all other existing wide-angle zooms. This lens will open doors that have thus far have remained unopened. This may very well be a crowning achievement in lens design?

If I mount a 25mm f2 batis on a a7rii, I can crop out a 35mm 18mp frame :D

Also I wont have to compromise on IQ

In reply to:

munro harrap: Again folks, all speculation. The camera is unavailable. There are no RAW files to look at, and AF time, shutter lag and AF accuracy are all unknowns. Lets wait until all that is known.

Wow you know NOTHING of Sony 4k tvs, they all play 60p 4k content, I cant believe anything you say just because you are so ignorant of the TV capabilities. Stop spreading this bs.

mpgxsvcd: The Panasonic FZ1000($720) is $123 more than the Nikon P900($597) on Amazon right now. You would have to be stupid to buy the Nikon over the FZ1000.

What if you wanted more than 400mm...

spaghettii: Here comes the overpriced expensive Sony stuffs just like their Vaio that went out of business!

Where else are you going to find a core i7 laptop that's made out of carbon and is 11" and starts up in 5 seconds and is thinner than a MacBook Air? I have one and yeah it did cost $1800. But you tell me where I can find one for cheaper and maybe I'll buy that. No I won't buy Mac laptop. Problem was that people only wanted cheap windows laptops.

In reply to:

Suntan: Very impressive tech. Too bad Sony can't cram a usable aperture dial and a shutter speed dial on that little RX100.

Aperture is on the lens ring while ss is on the rear dial. Spoken like someone who's never picked up an rx100 before.

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: None of those are match to a Leica full frame autofocus camera! And else than A7RII, they are the same models with 4K !
Sony used to sell some updates for cameras via its app store (time lapse I.e.) , but now for just 4K you have to buy entirely new camera! Fujifilm still leads the game by updates category.

Jello free video and 960 fps and 4k is hardly anything huh... Also af almost as fast as a6000 is also nothing I guess.

eamaro: Lenses... Check!

Now if they could up their flash / radio flash game... That would be awesome.

(Yes, I'm aware that you have manual options available... but can you imagine but how nice it would be to have a RT system or a AirRemote compatible with this gem?)

Phottix has a rt system for sony
