I'm a fan of the RX100 series, I have two. And each one has gotten progressively better. This one clearly being the best one yet. I think the price is a bit too high for me to add this one to my stable. At $950, that has me considering what else I could spend that money on, like applying those funds toward an A7II or a lens I've wanted that I've hesitated on. Not saying this isn't a camera I wouldn't shoot A TON and carry everywhere and that's what has me wishing it were say $750. But I applaud Sony's efforts to make their camera considerably better with each new introduction. You have to be impressed.
Like others here - WOW!!! This has me trying to figure out how I can buy one, what do I need to sell to create funds. Sony is really starting to crank! WOW!!
You have to a like company like this that continues to support their existing customer base with improvements and refinement. I see some chiming in here with comments that this is Fuji fixing what was broken. But there have been MANY, MANY Very Positive Reviews and Users of this camera prior to this update. So this firmware update really makes those users happier and will likely bring more new users to the brand. Is the XT-1 perfect, by no means but it is a very good image capture tool with a superb line-up of lenses.
I'm not a Pentax shooter but have to say this looks very intriguing. Clicks off many important features for me. I can definitely understand those here not happy about the omission of the built-in flash. But like Bjorn_L who just posted, I very rarely use, so not a major loss in my case. Though the GPS function is something I wouldn't use either.
The one thing that kept me from buying a Pentax years ago was I found the focusing very noisy. For my work, that is a big no-no. Haven't looked at the system in a long time, would have think they have addressed the noise with some great glass. If they have, I may pick this up with two lenses.
Think Tank Photo Thank you very much!
Terry Breedlove: That little 35 mm is a beautiful lens.
Agreed! Very Leica-Summicron like but weather-proof! Give me a 23mm like this one at f2 and something longer with a 70-85mm f2 and that will be my go-to kit. Very pleased with this one!
If the glass is good and IS is up to task AND an optional EVF will work on this, I'd pick one up for light travel.
Will there be an optional viewfinder?
It reminds me of their great 67 camera, the way the prism peaks. Should be interesting.
Sad state of photography we're in now. Why?!? This is frustrating to read.
eastwestphoto: I would have voted for the zeiss Loxia 50mm F:2 Planar in sony FE mount. It wasnt on the list, but it should be, I own it; shoot it and I have never been happier, Don@eastwestphoto
I agree! I'm VERY pleased with mine as well!
I agree with a few others here, the Zeiss Otus has set new standards for optical performance and regarded as the best lens out there and yet not here?!?
All the lenses here are fine lenses for sure, but the Otus should be here as well.
Love, love, love the images! Thank you for sharing and speaking/writing candidly here! It's very much appreciated and enjoyed. Helpful insight!
Favorite Line "Creativity trumps sharpness, always!"
I'm a fan of these Real-World Reviews! It's refreshing to see the cameras being actually used and not just shooting resolution charts.
Keep them coming!
Enjoyed the video! Especially liked that a real story was shot with a working pro. The camera appears very capable!
I have to say after handling one of these 7D Mark II, it's a nice camera to work with. The points go pretty far out to the edges of the frame too, so very handy. Felt extremely responsive.
I've watched all the videos and read many of the reviews on the this camera. All are pretty consistent. But have to say all my local camera stores are sold-out of the body, and they all say the D750 is not selling for them. The Rental Houses also mentioned that 95% of their rentals are Canon, Nikon only accounts for a very small 5%, maybe 7%.
I have absolutely nothing against Nikon or Sony. I own two Sony cameras, and a Canon system. I recently got a chance to shoot a D810 and that camera ROCKS!! But why is it that Canon has been able to maintain such a dominate position in the market place? I've heard their Professional Services are far better than everyone else. Is that it? I'm curious?!
Very Nice! This is something to get excited about!
Was there a specific theme for the contest? Quite a variety. There are a number of outstanding images here. Especially like #1, #6 and #9.
You have to hand it to Sony for making a BEAST of camera, and making real improvements with each new version.
I have the RX100 and it's a GREAT camera. Managed to resist the II version, even though I liked what they added. This one...too hard to resist. As others have said here "I'm IN!"
Came across this very extensive review/write-up on this camera.Worth reading:http://www.reddotforum.com/content.php/343-Leica-T-%28Typ-701%29-Review
