chile7236: Had I not moved to dslr for my underwater shooting, I would've jumped all over this for underwater wide angle. The rx100 was already great at that...with the faster lens, rx100iii rivals most entry level DSLRs for underwater use. Better than all? Doubtful...but looking at pics ftom others already putting it underwater, it's a great choice...aside from the added expense of a quality housing :(

unfortunately, the RX100 is not so good for macro (on it's own) as compared to the Canon G series...use of diopters is necessary as the min focus distance remains unuseful for the lens by itself. using an external strobe with the RX100 MkI or MkIII will have to be done with Fiber Optic cable to trigger the strobe since there is no hot shoe to trigger electrically.

lacikuss: Regardless of the how portable is with 1" sensor but $800?

Is the cold war era back? Is this a spy camera? NO!

This is a point and shot that photographers used to high quality images under most circumstances will miss badly having left at home their Nikon d3200 or Canon SL1 for this piece of overpriced point at shot.

true but it's not $800 where I live...$680-700. still a bit much but when the price drops further, it will be tempting

As an owner of the SL1, I can say that the IQ difference is not all that noticeable for me...maybe I'm not pixel peeping enough, tho.

Timmbits: it is nice to see an underwater camera with a larger than tiny sensor for a change... now all we need is an underwater RX100 that is really compact. ;)

put the rx100 in the recsea housing and it is still noticeably smaller and compact than 95% of the offerings out there. plus, a tiny camera underwater is a handling nightmare...unless you have tiny hands, of course.

SayCheesePlease: Film based underwater cameras (Nikonos included) are a royal pain in the anterior to use and very difficult to capture good images. Certainly possible, but difficult.

This camera is awesome, great hi iso, great lens, one session can take hundreds of images and/or video, small, less expensive.

Bravo Nikon! The whole water-sport world celebrates this camera

surfing
sailing
swimming
fishing
rafting
etc.

until I see how this camera actually performs underwater, I am not celebrating a $700USD underwater camera when I can still get the E-PM1 w/housing for $500...since I do like surf photography this may work for that...now let's see some hands on reviews in some of these water sports.

edit: agree with howaboutraw...had no issues with my NikV, either
