Nokia uses Zeiss optics with OIS. Sony collaborates with Zeiss for their cameras. What excuse does Sony have for not incorporating an OIS'ed Zeiss lens in Xperia? Furthermore, what keeps Sony from launching a Win-Xperia?
Nokia Icon's design is interesting.
With its design it belongs to Goddam City.
DSLRs all look hideous. The mirrorless have big screens at the back with no space to put a viewfinder; and if somebody squeezes in an EVF but reducing the screen size people start yelling. As for 'high quality but high price' lenses - people should calculate compound price inflation at 3, 4, 5, 6% per annum over 40 years and then ask the question "A high quality lens cost so much 40 years ago. what would be a reasonable price now?". Is the new Zeiss for A7 really expensive? The manufacturers ought to get their act together by concentrating on the quality of sensor, lens, design and build, useability. A plastic body is not acceptable.
Is it acceptable to tolerate a noisy and shaky shutter in this day and age? What happened to the shutter technology of 50-60 years ago?
Sony, do the sensible thing and replace the silly flash with a viewfinder on RX1, RX100. You have just come up with Alpha a7 without a flash. How many $500-$600 accessory viewfinders are you selling? Be a good boy!
Sony!Future RX100-III with a viewfinder instead of a flash?
This is a good move by DPR. By inviting ridicule in Leica's direction DPR are doing their best to direct Leica towards sanity. Whether Leica will take note remains to be seen.
Hallo Leica!Seid Ihr in normalem Zustand?
Leica has lost its way. Total confusion, not knowing where they are going; they rebadge other people's products or come up with something 'new' that is behind times. Incredible!
Yes, slow lens, no IS, no EVF, no this, that or the other, but the lens hood at £90 and wrist strap at £60 must be good reasons to own it.
Sony! C'mon! An RX100v with an EVF. Allowed to increase body size a little bit if you have to. Why has Panasonic had to compromise on the sensor? Sony! It is your turn.
A viewfinder is a must. Sony should discard the flash. Available light photographs from RX1 have been demonstrated to be good. But vignetting is a serious flaw. Post-processing is not ideal. Sony's work is cut out if they want to sell RX1 in numbers. Why should a pro have to carry a separate viewfinder for RX1? He will want the RX1 for its quality and compactness.
Sony! Remove the flash, use that space for a viewfinder, improve focusing and video. Then and only then you'll justify RX1's price.
"... the 920 doesn’t link exposure to the focus point ..." - serious!
Reading about 920's camera in IT or mobiles' reviews is one thing, reading here is a totally different thing. Thanks
Sony!RX1 looks compact enough head-on but from profile it does not look so. No excuses for not converting RX1 into an interchangeable lens camera!
The samples gallery contains available light pictures from RX1. Great performance! So, get rid of the flas and put in a hybrid VF! People are relying on you to carry out these assignments.
Sony!Are you going to get rid of the silly flash and replace it with a hybrid VF? Also, what were you thinking about when you fixed the lens? Make it an interchangeable lens camera without delay!
A fully manual RX1 style camera with f1.4-2.8, 35mm-135mm Leica or Zeiss lens, full-frame sensor, EVF and OVF, without in-built flash or screen, that gives Kodachrome and Ektachrome results.
