So this is Panasonic version of Fuji X100 clone?
MarcLee: On the other hand
Video and stills from video are not the same thing.
On the other hand, are you being paid by Canon marketing department? Because you kept promoting and hijacking G1X camera on this thread...
Joe Coolpix: I'm not liking the trend for the RX100 to get thicker. As a guy who likes to throw his P&S in my front jeans pocket, the original RX100 at 36mm was appealing. But the ii and now iii have grown in thickness a couple mm each time. At this rate, the RX100ix in 10 years will be another inch thicker. I like the Canon S trend better, with each successor getting thinner until this last S120 bumping up to 1.14 but still thinner than the S90's 1.22 inches. We're talking pocket cameras here not cars and each new one should get smaller not larger.
Maybe someone should stop buying skinny jeans :)
Raist3d: Here's an idea Sony. Make the RX100 Pro (or whatever you want to call it). It would be an interchangeable lens camera with 3 fast primes - a 28mm F2.0, a 50mm F1.4 and a 100mm F1.8. Maybe 18mm and 140mm options later.
Don't make it a super blown up new lens system, just key primes and maybe one good zoom and done. Put a nice grip area.
Oh and a new sensor variant with phase detect AF.
@Raist3d - Isn't that a Nikon 1 system?
b534202: I don't know what's this T* thing but they must really love it to put it in 3 places on the camera!
Zeiss coating on the viewfinder too?
mpgxsvcd: Does anyone hate this camera?
Not hate but I'm regret of getting the GX1 MK2.
Mike FL: Numbers are talking from Amazon US Site:
Sony DSC-RX100M III: - #1 in Camera & Photo > Point-and-Shoot Digital Cameras- #5 in Camera & Photo (See Top 100 in Camera & Photo)
Lets see how is the poorly executed Canon G1X-MK2 Doing:- #71 in Camera & Photo > Point-and-Shoot Digital Cameras- #330 in Camera & Photo (See Top 100 in Camera & Photo)
Well executed/done, Sony!
MarcLee is Professional at trolling. :P
BubbaHotepUK: Oh no! No touchscreen!Why not Sony, why not? I've been using the Panasonic GM1 recently and touchscreens on small cameras is definitely the way to go.
Still, it looks to be a super camera nonetheless, addressing most of my complaints about the RX100 I & II. Now that summer is here in the UK, that EVF may just swing it my way :)
I know right, no touch screen. I have been using iphone for 5 years, I wish sony implemented phone dialing on rx100 III too. Silly Sony.
Serickmetz: What an ugly unimpressive upgrade. The lens is the only decent part about it and that EVF just adds bulk, plus it's low quality will probably render it unusable
Just another pointless variation from sony to sap every bit of money they can out of the market.
The EVF on this camera is a big deal. I wish more Canon compacts have this feature.
James First 007: Not a great lens. The DxoMark review got it right…When compare to the 55mm, it is very disappointing…
In fact, the reason why I am staying away from the A7R is because there is no 35mm capable of performing well on this 36 mg camera !
However, the 55MM is an outstanding lens…worthy of its price tag !
James wrote: "Not a great lens". Did you even read the review?
RichRMA: Nothing to write home about for that price. They took the "Sigma" path, making the lens sharp in the centre but not so much the edges. Also, why does the body have to be as large as it is when the elements are so small (35mm f/2.8 only needs elements about 15mm across)?
Just curious, the Sigma 35mm F1.4 same size as Zeiss 35mm F2.8?
I agree with the review. Like everything about the lens except the price. I will pick one up when it drops to $600 used.
Rawmeister: Lets see a serious review on the Sony FE 70-200 f4 OS.It costs 1500 smackers. More than the legendary Canon IS version.
One would suppose it's an even better lens.Pffftttt.
I'm not holding my breath over this vapourware that should define the usefulness of the system. All the other Zeiss for Sony products have been only so-so. Why should things change now, er I mean in the future?
Well, lets see some serious comments first.
McJ: If this was a dslr, it would have been panned as the worst performing camera of the last 10 years. But since it's mirrorless, it magically gets "gold".
I will probably buy this camera myself as a slow digital back for my 30+ year old primes, but I feel sorry for those that buy this as a general purpose camera because it got "gold" in this test.
@McJ, Do you even read the review? or you just skim straight to the award logo?
jeremyclarke: COMPARED TO THE OM-D EM-10
- a6000 has no in-body image stabilization, EM-10 has 3-axis stabilization (not 5 like the pro models, but reviews indicate they kept the most important 3 and it still works the same 90% of the time).- 24pm instead of 16mp (Might give better IQ or might not, guaranteed to fill your hard drive). - Sensor size: Sony wins, bigger and almost definitely better. Do we need the difference?- a6000 has 1 top dial, 1 back dial, compared to 2 top dials on EM-10. I much prefer top dials (especially the top+front one) to back dials so you can maintain grip. - Dial configurability: probably none on a6000 like the NEX 6. EM-10 allows swapping of main dial function and you can assign a "2x2" button that temporarily changes their behavior (i.e. aperture+speed -> ISO+WB). Summary: EM-10 is closer to a7 than a6000 in terms of dials.- Focus peaking/zoom assist: Both have it, OM-D uses touch screen to make it much easier to move around the zoom point for assist.
@Lab, if course it is better. Have you check the sensor performance and rating on DXO website. The 3 years old NEX-7 still beat the latest EM1 by 8 pts. That's a lot in Olympic scores.
km25: 24MPs is a little high for APS-C, I would rather give up a few MPs for better low light use. The 24MP is fine for the mass market, but I think most serious photographer would rather a better balance, leaving 24MP for FF. I fell as if 16-20MP is best for APS-C in all the noise tests I have seen.
Not really. Maybe a bit high for a tiny m4/3 sensor but not for current APS-C and Fullframe sensors.
Noham: Anyone got a good review on the F4 24 -70 - only one i saw was mixed bags... before moving at a7 /a7r or om1 - getting the lense right is crucial (or can wait for nikon and canon to launch their own full frame mirroless.
rsf3127: Since this morning, I believe that the NEX-7 is a great buy at the current prices.
I disagree. A6000 has the new processor, updated and better 24MP sensor, added Wifi/NFC which NEX-7 lacks, plus the most important the new hybrid AF for only $650.
From DPR's CP+ report, "highlight product of the company's year so far is the a6000. Replacing the NEX-6 (and for now at least, the NEX-7 too)".
saradindubose: This SONY looks cool - is it made in Japan or China?
