munchaussen: oh yeah! selfies are more important than EVFs...
-was that sarcasm?
-nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-was that sarcasm?
I'd rather have that toy on board for fill-in flash than having to carry around one like the Panasonic LX100.
With the fully articulating screen, I look forward to a major improvements in movie mode.
EHDesigns: I might buy a Pentax FF if it ever gets released, but what I really want now from Pentax is a K-3 replacement (effectively) that retains the best of the K-3 (build quality, IQ, ergonomics), but improves on auto focus, including continuous/predictive tracking, and video to compete with the Canon 7D II, the Samsung NX1, and the Sony a77II. And, I want a 16-50 f/2.8 zoom that offers reliability along with excellent IQ, and of course weather sealing.
Don't forget the fully articulating LCD, preferably with touch screen.

Sdaniella, any other manufacturer using BSI CMOS for 4/3 and larger sensors?
hexie9: the silver one have black lens? it's not cool.I will choose black version.
Oops sorry, here's the link. The internal lens barrel is black.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCo5vpyv1FQ
No, the silver one have silver lens with brown accents. http://www.dailycameranews.com/2014/09/panasonic-lx100-hands-reviews-samples/
Roland Karlsson: It looks nice. Maybe made a mistake when buying RX100 III ?
Not too long from now someone will also make the mistake of buying the LX100. I'm one of them.
Pallke: Nice camera, nothing special.
But: in 5 years from 18MP to 20MP... hmmmm WOW!
From 18MP to 20MP is not an improvement for same size sensor. 18MP to 16MP is.
lcf80: Eugene232: Current generation of u43 sensors (2013 and newer) provide great image quality, with fully usable ISO 1600 and acceptable ISO 3200 - so I don't think you have anything to worry about in that regard. Also mind that LX100 comes with very fast lens, so you're about 2 EV ahead vs A5100 kit lens. You could use ISO 800 F/1.8 on LX100 where you would need ISO 3200 and F/3.6 on Sony. Remember that when you'll be comparing test images.
What is the real killer feature of LX100 is the DFD AF, which is the fastest AF technology available on the mirror-less market today. Then add ability to record high-quality 4K videos to get the full image.
Sony will give you some more details due to 24 MP output, but do we really need that? In most cases images are scaled down to 2 MP or less to be viewed on the web, or printed on A4 at most - and 12 MP on LX100 is more than enough to handle that.
Only thing some people might find lacking on the LX100 is missing articulated screen.
Given the fast lens, the LX100, should have built-in ND filter.
DPReview, the LX100 does have a built-in time lapse recording feature.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAIPnZh8RZI&list=UUZgyCsZQLFF30TCs4uaZFKw&index=45
This will be my next camera because it has lower pixel density than most (if not all cameras in its class). Is Panasonic the only one listening about having less pixels on a larger sensor?
zavart: The camera looks very promising. The only thing missing for me is tillable screen. Also I don't understand why they couldn't stretch the square format so it would cover the whole area of the sensor from top to bottom. (unless the grey area is not really a sensor )
It is NOT designed to maintain the angle of view of comparable 4/3, so it retains the same focal length at all aspect ratios for bracketing. Wider apertures is thus possible without increasing the size of the lens.
That means the focal length will also have to change. Look at the design of this lens and the way the aspect ratio control is incorporated on to the lens barrel. Also see this camera's aspect ratio bracketing function that maintains the same focal length.
peevee1: The display cannot be tilted down at all, right? So overhead shooting is out? Quite an omission.
Can tilt up but not down.
The next Pentax flagship DSLR will have an articulating LCD screen which is the trend now with the other manufacturers. Hope they also improve on video performance with better codec and perhaps 4K.
About the price of the Sony RX100M3. I will most likely lose the card than the camera unless it is in the camera.
Menneisyys: Pretty disappointing shots compared to, say, those of the RX100 MkIII.
No compact ever made can match the RX100 M3 in overall picture quality. You need a good DSLR to get similar or better images. I however prefer Fuji's skin tone and color rendition.
Nice tone and color rendition by Fuji as expected.
avicenanw: The next version of the RX10 should include 4K video, an upgraded EVF with 2.36-million dot resolution, and a fully articulated (flip out) LCD touch screen. No need to increase zoom range if it increases weight and bulk, and losing the f2.8 constant aperture.
Dual card slots would be nice too. One each for stills and video, especially UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) for 4K video.
