Have they finally fixed the lens mechanism issue?

Only good thing about this camera is that it lowers the price of the S95 and S100.

photo nuts: So, 3 duds in a single day announcement: 6D, G15 and S110. Well done, Canon!

Canon can only sell cameras based on brand name for so long. They're heading for a fall.

Betting the sensor will be crap, particularly ito DR.

So far, I'm still leaning towards the Sony RX100 - will have to wait for in an-depth review to see how IQ and AF performance compare.

RX100 has a larger sensor, (probably) better AF, more features.
Will have to wait for the reviews...

mwstebbins: Like someone said my R1 is still going strong, and if Sony can put a comparable R1 zoom (or better) on this RX1, I'll buy it.

Why not just get a Nex with zoom? Same size, price, etc?
The only point of having a fixed prime is for compactness - if you incorporate a zoom you are throwing away that benefit. Just get a Nex.

Jan Kritzinger: My only complaint is that the lens is slightly bulky for the body form factor - give us a 23/2.8 APS-C RX10 the size of the RX100, for $1k! Come on Sony, Do it!

@Misha It would be different from Nex because it could actually be SHIRT POCKETABLE.
Nex isn't shirt pocketable.
Fuji X100 isn't shirt pocketable.
RX1 isn't shirt pocketable.

23mm APS RX10 could be shirt pocketable. <- That's the point.

Boerseuntjie: I like it, but will not call it a Leica killer, If Sony was smart they would make this with interchangeable lens for M mount and add the adapter for A mount and E mount, now that would be a Leica rival.

You can't add an adapter for E-mount to a Leica M mount, because the M mount has a longer flange distance than E-mount.

What you need is simply a FF Nex, with E-mount, which then accomodates M and A mount adapters.

I do believe it's coming.

Winston Directo: This camera seems like a preview of what 3-4 generations later will give us... zoom, optical viewfinder, and $500 camera. Looking forward for it.

Zoom is overrated!

Digital Suicide: This could be camera of my dreams. If it performs well. Fixed 35mm is my favorite lens, so I would be absolutely fine with it. As many people are fine with Fuji X100. I would definitely get this one if I had that amount of spare money...

I'm waiting for a ~$1000, shirt-pocketable, 35mm equiv RX10, with an APS (or even smaller) sensor. But it has to be shirt-pocketable, and it has to have a 35mm equivalent lens... and then just whatever the biggest sensor Sony can shoehorn in there...

In reply to:

manakiin: RX10 - APS-C three-point zoom lens (28mm f2, 35mm f2.8, 45mm f3.5).

No. The RX10 needs to be shirt pocketable. That means APS, or even sub APS sized sensor, and a fixed 35mm equivalent lens.
If you want a zoom you've already got pocketable and non-pocketable solutions, ie RX100 and Nex.

AF Performance?
I'm also waiting to see how good the PDAF in the soon to be announced Nex 6 is.

Roger Knight: Anyone who has a NOKIA Belle smartphone with it's superb new smooth Symbian operating system will appreciate that this SAMSUNG is still many, many years behind the Nokia 808 PureView in every respect photographically and Belle is right up there with both iOS and Android in the operating system stakes. So, because I already have Nokias superb E7-00 Belle I shall wait for the Nokia windows Phone version of PureView because the camera is so damned good and usefull especially for back up travel use.

Camera A must be superior to camera B - I own camera A!

Ebay batteries are cheap, I've got 4 spare batteries for my Nex 5.

I really really really hope Sony have nailed On-sensor PDAF.

It might be time for me to upgrade from the trusty old Nex 5 to a Nex 6, when that's released.

I wish Sony would make one with a fixed, 35mm (even 40mm) equivalent fov lens, with even larger physical aperture. Imagine the IQ!

GregGory: Silver?

Grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the unfolding apocalypse...

DPR is in the business of selling page views.
Giving a camera like this a Silver Award guarantees lots of comments, and therefore lots of pageviews.

That said, if you ignore the award and the rating, it's a very good review.
