3080mm with AF when mounted on Pentax Q10:-) One will have to build this lens in concrete wall hold this focal length steady. No tripod would do it.
simon65: It looks like a winner!
I think some people are missing the point here, namely that the RX100 is offering a quality build camera with 1 inch sensor and Carl Zeiss zoom lens in a body not really much bigger or heavier than Canon's 1/1.7" sensor S100.
That's some achievement and for me that makes the RX100 a game changer.
Yes like others I would have preferred less MP (14-16 MP is more than enough), and would trade 30 mm at the long end of the zoom range for an extra 5 mm at the wide end (ie 24-75mm), but this camera still gets my vote as the most interesting compact camera of the year, so far!
Oh, sorry. Even I got fooled by the specs. Seems, like every small sensor camera maker is trying to lie about sensor size.
13.2x8.8mm is 1/1.6", that's not that much bigger, than 1/1.7" sensor in Canon S100.
Besides astro-photography, this camera is suitable also for infrared photography and underwater photo/video, where red channel is very weak and correcting white ballance introduce lot of red noise. I'm using CSC camera with removed ir-cut filter for underwater and infrared photography.
ST-E3-RT with no AF-ASSIST - are you serrious?
short f/2.8 primes ? who will buy them? If they would be pancake lenses, they will have market. It's just one stop faster than f/4@24mm in 18-135 kit lens.
When people asked me what affordable underwater camera they should buy, I used to recommend them Canon D10, because of larger sensor and brighter lens than competition. Now, when D10 is old model, I recommend better compact (like S95/S100) with underwater housing. I can't recommend D20 as cheaper alternative:-(
Eye-Fi is crap. It sends all credentials to Eye-Fi servers. You can't setup it with FTP server on private LAN and transfer was unusable slow. Worst spent 130 EUR.
Put wifi/bluetooth remote control from tablet to mirrorless, and I will buy it.Other suggestions, to make it perfect:1) open API, to be able to control/trigger multiple installed cameras. 2) don't forget wired remote trigger connector (for connecting trap trigger)
